Not Equality for All

Well, it started off as a happy election day. Obama won and I was happy that equality in the U.S. had taken a step forward. But then yesterday, it took two steps back when I learned of all the anti-gay ammendments that passed. California's Prop 8 passed - unbelievable. In addition, Florida and Arizona banned gay marriage even when the same ammendment failed in Arizona only two years ago. Ridiclous.

And in Arkansas, gay people can no longer adopt or even foster. I'm sure everyone that voted for that is going to start taking in foster kids, OLDER ones. Yeah, right...f'ng bastards! Yes, I'm angry and bitter. It was fueled even more when I attended last night's pre-school board meeting consisting of clueless co-op straight parents. They act so open and aware but they are totally not. All isn't well just because Obama was elected.

Aside from being angry about another blow to gay rights, I had a good day. Wednesday is Cam's day off of pre-school which I've come to enjoy.

Mary stayed home for a few hours in the morning which was a big surprise and nice. We had a little Fall photo shoot. Later, when I put the pics' on the computer for me and Cam to look at, he got angry when I said he looked cute. He said he wasn't cute that baby was. Then I said, well, you look handsome. He said I'm not handsome. I said, well, what are you? His response, "I'm AWESOME!". That kid is a nut.

Anywho, the pics are quite cute...

Baby O.G. was more interested in eating leaves.
