For Christmas, Santa Bae gave me a diffuser. As I’ve been trying to not rely on air fresheners and the like so much, I’ve been trying to figure out more useful ways to freshen the home without speeding up my death by adding so many chemicals, gasping for air, and not wanting my home to be a sterile as a hospital.

We lucked out with his preschool and how diverse it is. Bear has a Muslim best friend and a Latino one. He’s very friendly with children of other races and he’s not the only biracial child at the school. He has friends who have gay parents, parents of all socio-economic classes, and it was all love between us.
