  • Chinese New Year Chapter Books for Older Kids
    on Feb 3, 2016 in Books I Read Holidays On China
    There are many lists about Chinese New Year books for preschoolers and young elementary students, but very few highlight chapter books for middle graders and tweens. There aren't many out there, but they DO exist. Here are a few of the Tongginator's...
  • No One Talked There
    on May 19, 2014 in Adoption Squirt Stories
    My two girls are so different when it comes to how they think and feel about adoption, and yes, that's taking into account their rather large age difference (over six years apart).  You see, Squirt - at nearly four years of age - just doesn't wa...
  • I Have a Cold, Cold Heart
    on Apr 11, 2014 in Real Life
    This is a not-so-short PSA announcing that I just may shoot myself if I have to hear even one more off-key, beltingly loud version of Frozen's "Let It Go."  I know you mommas of girls know what I'm talking about.  I think every North Americ...
  • Awkward Conversation #327
    on Feb 14, 2014 in About Race
    I don't know about y'all, but I try very hard to stay out of my childrens' social lives, especially the Tongginator's now that she is approaching ten.  Every once in awhile, I might make a comment to the Tongginator about an incident...

    on Jan 28, 2014 in Real Life
    We are heading into Day 11 of Sickness at Tonggu House and I'm feeling a bit twitchy.  The Tongginator is back at school after a week lying on the couch, watching The Food Network and House Hunters and listening to me nag her about drinking enou...
  • All or Nothing: We Deal with Both at This House
    on Jan 27, 2014
    Just when you (mistakenly) think you've got everything figured out, life throws you another curve ball.  I've spent the past nine years walking through the minefield of "adoption and race stuff" with the Tongginator, trying my best...
  • 50 Books About Being Different
    on Jan 22, 2014 in Books I Read
    I've been on a bit of a book kick this past year, probably because I got all riled up at our county library this past summer.  It seems our library's "Summer Reading Program" isn't actually as advertized, and is instead a "...
  • Yes, We are Alive. Who knew?!!?
    on Jan 16, 2014 in Real Life
    Tap, tap.  Tap, tap.Hello? Is this thing on?(Corny, I know. Forgive me, y'all - I'm totally out of practice.)Where do I even begin?  I guess I should start by confessing that I have absolutely No Valid Reason for dropping off the face of th...
  • 月圓, 人圓
    on Sep 29, 2012
    月圓, 人圓  Yuè yuán, rén yuán. When the moon is round, families unite. Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, y'all.
  • Not Mrs. Moe!
    on Sep 25, 2012 in About Race Squirt Stories
    A couple of weeks ago, little Squirt and I ran into a woman I know from church.  I've chatted with her a few times and like her as a person, but we are no more than acquaintances.  I'm hoping to grow the relationship into a friendship of so...
