Emily "I wear pajamas to the grocery store" Maynard

So, I found something kinda sad today. There I was, just strollin’ the streets of Bermudaton, Bermuda, and I see this tiny book wedged between the bars of a child-sized cage. It was pretty mysterious and mostly illegible, but really touching. In fact, I’d love to share an excerpt:

Dear Diary,

So, Bermuda’s pretty wack. I mean, mom’s gone like 23 hours of the day. And, yeah, sure, she’s spun me in the air a couple times in various scenic locales but she totally didn’t even care when I mastered “the blue list.” (And it’s, like, the hardest list.) What’s that shit about? I did not sign up for destination parenting. This isn’t getting anyone mom points. Seriously…betch be cray callin this a vaycay.

Kisses and rainbows,


Yikes. Pretty miz, huh? I hope it gets better for the poor kid/prop.
