First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ With the Fire on High

Cooking, Grandparents, Grandma, With the Fire on High, Red, Fruits, Bandana, Girl, Parenting, Young Adult, Elizabeth Acevedo,
Babygirl doesn’t even cry when I suck my teeth and undo her braid for the fourth time. If anything, I’m the one on the verge of tears, since at this rate we’re both going to be late.
“Babygirl, I’m sorry. I know it hurts. Mommy just doesn’t want you looking like a hot mess.
She seems unfazed by my apology, probably because thing (1) I’m not braiding tight enough to actually hurt her (which is why her hair is all loosey-lopsided!), and thing (2) Babygirl is watching Moana. And she loves Moana. So long as I let her watch Moana she’ll let me play with her hair till kingdom come.

I decided 16% would be a nice number for today’s Teaser Tuesday.

This baby hears
more Japanese here-
Obaachan’s fussing about Jiichan
leaving tea rings on the table
bruising tomatoes on shop errands,
forgetting something on her list

the tv blaring
recipes,
drama,
and news all day long.
