picking what to grow up to be is confusing

when i was real little
i wanted to be a cowgirl when i grew up


but then i grew up a little bit
and realized i wanted to be a ballerina


but i only wanted to be ballerina until
i learned about jane goodall and primates and stuff
then i wanted to be a primate zoologist


now i’m kinda almost grown up
and i’m not even any of those things!

but sometimes i like to put on my cowgirl boots
and my super fancy tutu
and watch some old-timey jane goodall documentaries on vhs

what did you wanna be?!

this groundhog’s day eve we took it real easy

last year on groundhog’s day eve, me & punxsutawney phil raged.


so hard, in fact, he was a mess for the groundhog festivities!

this year, we took it reeeaaaal easy.


he had work in the AM

and he’s a total lightweight!

phil says spring is gonna come early this year,

which is good news cause i love the spring.


one year ago today: happy groundhog day!

two years ago today: forget shadows! what happens if he sees a cocoa?

three years ago today: “if given the option…” or “uh, DUH”

NEWS FLASH: balloon animals are not just for kids

there was a man twisting balloon animals at the park

so of course i hadda get one!

(i got a balloon sword!)

besides, who ever said balloons are just for kids, anyway?

same goes for ball pits and bounce houses…

i got carded at the adult toy store

i went to some adult toy shops to find party favors for

my bffs2g’s bachelorette party.

several of these places asked to see my ID.

boy i bet he was real embarrassed when he saw i am of age!

(kinda) one year ago today: cocoa is goin on a lil weekend trip to see the fam

cocoa j

oh no. i’m goin to jail now, huh?

a lil girl in the neighborhood thinks I am her age :/

why don’t I have the courage to tell her I’m a grown up? maybe if I finally came clean, she would quit with the pizza party invites (I have a hard enough time turning down pizza as it is and I’m running out of excuses).

(kinda) one year ago today: j makes the darndest toasts
