  1. "That's Tennessee/Texas/Missouri/Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas/etc. for ya!"
    Every time someone refers to drastic weather changes this way, I feel like I'm losing my mind. Sometimes weather changes a lot! It's not just your state! The absolute worst is when someone says this when we're at the end of a season: "That's March in Tennessee for ya!" Right, yes, that's what happens when the seasons change.
If I don't find it on my feedly, I save it here. They're ordered from oldest to most recent.
  1. Can White Americans Be Free?
    A Salon think piece from 2013. It's been there for at least a year.
  2. Vaccines Work. Here are the Facts.
    A cartoon from The Nib that fits this description. This has been open for almost exactly a year. At that time my husband worked with a lot of anti-vaxxers and it completely stressed me out.
  3. The scientific evidence against spanking, timeouts, and sleep training.
    Found on Quartz. I'm a nanny and read obsessively. And I'm convinced there's little to no good that comes from above items based on my experience, gut, etc.

Adrian is 3, and I am his nanny.
  1. "Windsey, do you like vanilla lattes or chocolate lattes?"
    Asked as I was strapping him into his car seat.
  2. "Windsey, I noticed a new little kind of car called Acura."
    He turned and said this to me while we were sitting on the couch watching Winnie the Pooh.
  3. "Windsey, you're adorable!!"
    He was angry at me about something, and he balled up his little fists and yelled this at me.
