Happy Friday

Did you get your copy(ies) of Teen Vogue yet? I'm on the hunt for all three covers and so excited to see representation in the fashion industry starting to extend its wide arms around the disability community. We need it! If you're not sure what I'm talking about Teen Vogue put three different women with disabilities on three different September issue covers and it's making waves in all the best ways!

As promised I am working on some new Special Needs Spotlights, but in the meantime I thought I'd do a link roundup. I don't do link round ups very often, but I love when other bloggers post them (do you?) so here are some of my favorite links from this past week.

I'm a fan of Nike's new campaign with Colin Kaepernick and I especially love the full 2 minute ad. Although I understand the controversy--as others have pointed out, certainly many other people have sacrificed much more. BUT he is a notable sports figure (and Nike is a sports brand) who paid a big price for his non-violent protest. What's your take?

Netflix is hitting it out of the park lately with the original teen movies. I really dug To All the Boys I've Loved Before (want to read the books!) and now I can't wait to see Sierra Burges is a Loser.

The real crazy, rich Asians.

Got these in black last Fall and I'm still in love with them... so glad to see they're back.

Thinking about getting a second one of these because the price and the fit are so great. (Over 500 5-star reviews!) 

As a lifelong night owl, I was relieved to read this. (You're not better than us morning people!) Also, do you think "chronotype diversity" could really catch on? I wouldn't mind if it did.

Not the typical museum heist.

Some really good parenting tips. (wink, wink)

As always, a slow news cycle in Washington... the anonymous op ed in the New York Times-- a constitutional crisis?

Might need to hightail it up to Cleveland for this exhibit.

Mother's of daughters! I'm currently in the middle of this book right now and it's so good.

I hope you have a great weekend! Please if you know anyone who'd make a great Special Needs Spotlight please email me (or better yet, have them email me) at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com.

    Hi! Love your blog! I just heard about, and thought you might be interested in, Nicholas McCarthy, a one-handed pianist who graduated from England's Royal College of Music. He tours internationally and played with Coldplay at the Paralympics. He "is a champion of the dynamic and brave world of left hand alone repertoire" according to the bio on his website ( Anyway, just thought I'd share. He's really talented!

    1. Thank you so much! I'll be sure to check him out.

    Yes, Untangled is the one parenting book I recommend to my friends of teens! I read an excerpt a few years back in the Washington Post and was intruiged. Incredibly valuable, well-researched and important perspective on what is happening developmentally in our teenagers. Highly recommend!

    1. So glad to hear that from a seasoned parent. Honestly, it's just giving me a lot of reassurance about "normal" behavior and knowing where those lines are (from normal/typical to "you should worry if...") as I really have no idea.
