My other other son, John

Marjorie Pay Hinckley once said that whenever you can say yes in parenting, 
you should.

Which is why M— and I spent several hours last night putting the finishing touches 
on her cosplay, a Homestuck cross-play (meaning gender-bending) of god tier John,
for the Spring Anime Convention in the Valley of Salt.

Which is why at 7 a.m. this morning I was up to take pictures of my daughter 
proudly sporting a bound chest and a short black guy's scene wig.

Which is why, at 11:30 p.m. tonight I was driving around South Valley of Salt 
trying to locate the on-ramp to the freeway once I'd retrieved her from
a day amongst so many other socially awkward teens.

She was so happy today.

Why wouldn't a parent say yes to that?
