Life with 'song and Elayna

Elayna! - Karlita
So Elayna is working on her college applications.


She's finally done with all of her essays and her arts-supplement resume; all she has left is the ten-minute video that gets attached to the arts supplement. We have been working hard. We're a little punchy.

Me: "What are you going to put in your arts supplement video?"

Elayna: "I don't knooooow."

Me: "Figure it out!"

Elayna: "NYAAAARGH." *pulls laptop over her head*

Me: "What are you doing child."


Me: "That is not how science works."

Elayn: "RRRRGH"


Elayna, deadpan: "Respect my beliefs."

Me: "...'k..."

Elayna: "Rrgh." *pause* "It's not working."

Me: "Because science -"

I wish I had the relationship with my mom to have conversations like that. And I hope when I am a mom, I can with my kids!

Best of luck with your video, Elayna.

What's the video supposed to be about? Because that sounds like a great intro.

That's what I was thinking!!

I love this child. She has great potential to be an awesome adult.

Once applications are in, you might want to start searching scholarships. There are LGBT ones, and ones for Jewish students and Pagan students (if Elayna identifies/qualifies).

I think I'd like that kid.

To be fair, the video could simply be her frustration with trying to make one. She can use the camera built into the lid and start the video with her hair blocking the lens.

Also, she is not far off. If you wish really hard, there is only the computer.

I will respect her beliefs. Sometimes "science" is just a way to say "we are your overlords, and this piece of paper is truthier than you".

I hope I have this kind of relationship with my children!
