First Time Outsider

August 7, 2013 by Katia

I’ve always felt like I don’t belong, which is probably why I moved continents one day, to give that feeling an official reason… I’ve never, however, been an outsider until I became one for a brief moment.

I wrote a post about this, which is featured on one of my absolutely favourite blogs, Finding Ninee, today. My hilarious friend Kristi, the powerhouse behind Finding Ninee, brilliantly describes and illustrates life “in the middle world” with Tucker, her 4 Year Old son. A few months ago Kristi wrote a post titled “A Land of Empathy and Wonder” and the post became a series, Our Land. My post on Kristi’s blog today is part of that series.

    Loved, loved, loved. I rambled a bit over there, so I’ll keep it short here.

Sometimes it's hard to find connection points between my childhood and my children's. It's not just Middle East in the 80s vs. North America today, but also me being a girly girl and them, well, not. Continuity is scarce and sought after and often artificially created. However, this morning when the kids announced "Bearsy Wears is getting a little trim" their mom may have wrinkled her forehead considering all of the added items on her to do list, sizing up the scissors in her children's hands and calculating risks, but the little girl from the 80s held up one hand with scissors and pointed to the shaven-head Barbie in the other one and thought "twinsies". #nostalgia #haircuts #momsofinstagram #weekend #parenting #bonding #siblings #boymom
