On the rare occasion Quinoa doesn't receive a formal invitation to a play date, she remembers it is simply code for "Make a Surprise Entrance." #MIWDTD #HOWTOQUINOA

Between his dimly lit playroom, ill-fitting peacoat, and overall general malaise, Quinoa's friend Salinger was showing all the tell-tale signs of becoming a stock character in a mildly plagiarized college paper. #MIWDTD #HOWTOQUINOA

Unfortunately, Quinoa was unable attend the Hipster Ball with Halloumi, but graciously sent her essence to accompany him instead. #MIWDTD #HOWTOQUINOA

While walking on sidewalks, Quinoa loves to play the "always step on cracks or you'll pay more income tax" game. #MIWDTD #HOWTOQUINOA

  • Cat Herdr

    Quinoa demonstrates her mastery of this art form here by shouting out a fierce Kiai while both insteps are above the cracks simultaneously

Quinoa says all caps isn't so much a font treatment as it is a mindset. #MIWDTD #HOWTOQUINOA #BUYTHEBOOK

Of all the back-to-school trends this season, Quinoa's favorite is shoulder shoes. #MIWDTD #HowToQuinoa #buythebook

  • Lisa Shafer

    Surely she must be STARTING trends, not just following them?!

  • Kym Blackwell

    @El Hubbard , please tell me you follow this. Please look through. It's hilarious.

  • Julie Woods

    It's important that the shoulder shoe coordinate (but not MATCH) other accessories like eyewear.

  • Jennifer Bohrer

    also, they must be new fresh out of the box, best if have never been on anyone's feet...

  • Molly Romeo

    No outfit is complete without Shoulder Shoes. Duh!

Quinoa was there for her friend Gazpacho when he realized (after she pointed it out) that he had crossed the delicate line between Mysterious Artist and Weird Kid Who Hoards Stuff From Craigslist. #MIWDTD

Quinoa seemed fine during her history lesson on the Great Mullet Epidemic of the late 80s, but was found later in the fetal position. #MIWDTD

As the kingpin, Quinoa says the key to success in Toddler Terrace Bowling is not to fear the ball, but to dare it to knock you down. #MIWDTD

    Grenadine back there doesn't look too sure about this. She needs to Quinoa-up.

Quinoa and her BFF Chevron love to play a little game in which Quinoa spontaneously shouts, "Jump!" and Chevron jumps, but not nearly high enough. #MIWDTD

After a long weekend of battling for independence, Quinoa treated herself to a new string of pearls and a parakeet scalp massage. #MIWDTD

Quinoa has been around long enough to know that you never show up to a play date for the first time without your own lighting. #MIWDTD

  • Mindy Cohen

    Has her hair been styled to help the installers position the lights?

  • Cat Herdr

    Nice boots!

  • Indigo Retro

    Quinoa also apparently knows sclera contact lenses are the ultimate accessory. Pinhead-couture is TOTALLY going to be a thing, and she is on the bleeding edge.

  • Myriam Bostwick

    She learned that from her great-aunt Maleficent, who incidentally styled her hair!

  • Sylvie Berger

    Quinoa already prepares her next Halloween costume: a hybrid between Lewis Caroll's bunny, her ineffable Alice and Pipi Longstockings - thus the hair kabobs for rabbit ears, reminding Pipi's braids, the bell-shaped blue skirt reminiscent of Alice’s usual dress and the boots worn with striped socks. Also, as you can see, Quinoa already thinks about the winter celebrations, with the huge Christmas balls. Because careful and farsighted planning is very important to Quinoa!

Quinoa's friend Orzo always seems so laid back at play dates. You know, once he finishes covering all the walls in butcher paper. #MIWDTD

    The ultimate neutral. Timeless!

  • Kelley

    The Mommy Minder League of Au Pairs only became concerned when he kept insisting on meeting in rooms with drains in the floor and plastic sheeting and using slang from 1940's Gangster movies. A sternly worded Instagram was quickly dispatched to his Past Life Regression Therapist to intervene.

  • Nicole Neal

    Holy crap, Kelley! That is awesome!

  • Amy Callaman

And for the final phase of their conscious unpairing, Quinoa and Boursin took a series of forlorn-resignation photos to release with their statement to the media. #MIWDTD

  • Kimberly Widmer

    It was time for a break up. Boursin always seemed a bit cheesy to me.

  • Maia Y

    Indeed. Quinoa and Boursin is a combination that could never have worked. She'd be much better off with Kale or Açai.

  • Tessa Just Tessa

    Quinoa keeps possession of windblown hair in the separation decree.

  • Stephanie

    Conscious unpairing is a more palatable phrase than conscious uncoupling. Bleck.

  • Sylvie Berger

    Boursin!!! Hahahaha!!! BOURSIN!!!!!!! You are unbelievable!!! Hihihihihi!!!

Quinoa is expected to have a full recovery, but will need to wear a Dahlia-Hydrangea neck brace for three to four more weeks. #MIWDTD

Sometimes Quinoa's BFF Chevron is so difficult at play dates. First, she brought the wrong gauge of tulle for the ethereal backdrop, and then she blatantly disregarded the gold lamé, peacock silk and gilded head wreath dress code. #MIWDTD

  • Jennie Stevens

    The things Quinoa has to put up with! She's a saint!

  • Holly Davis

    Chevron, no one is perfect! You keep trying your best, and maybe Quinoa will come around.

  • Camille Flynn

    I agree, chevron needs to prioritize and get her shit together

  • Tina Stone

    It's hard for Chevron to prioritize what should be TRULY important when she's secretly in love with Boursin. Poor if That could ever happen.

  • Sylvie Berger

    But you don't understand Chevron... How devoid of compassion you are! Don't you understand she wants to raise birds? She can't understand how Quinoa can wear a nest in her hair and remain so indifferent to those lovely chirping creatures!

The How to Quinoa books are beginning to arrive! Order yours if you haven't already from your favorite bookseller! #MIWDTD

  • Tiffany Beveridge

    Oh goodness, I hope I didn't make you nervous! No, your photo isn't in the book. The book features all new photography secured directly from a handful of photographers with their permission. We also obtained permissions from the models/guardians too. If there is ever a second Quinoa book, would you like me to reach out to you?

  • Tiffany Beveridge

    Jess, yes, they were excited. I had a great time working with the photographers.

  • Jess

    Fantastic! Best of luck! :)

  • Stephanie Gramacki

    I was wondering if you had new photos made for tge

  • Stephanie Gramacki

    Omg, tablet freezing! ...for the book. That's awesome. Bet you got really creative and funny. Can't wait to read it.

In the nick of time, Quinoa was able to swat the tweezers from Nespresso's hand and apply pressure until the eyebrow artist could arrive to even his brows. #MIWDTD

  • Tina Yeh

    Where was Quinoa when I had an eyebrow accident? :(

  • Lindy Hector Witton

    It looks like she leapt from the pool or sun lounge to assist

  • Tricia Vollmer

    The thing that always gets me about these posts is that someone actually got these kids to pose like this -- on purpose! I always enjoy how ridiculous you make them seem :)

  • Selena Fettig

    Don't look directly at him, Quinoa.

  • Tara May

    Hilarious. @Sasha Villa I love you for introducing me to Quinoa and her friends.

Quinoa had no problem with her friend Delineate's gentle criticism and incessant questions, especially after she had been blindfolded and locked in the basement closet. #MIWDTD

Quinoa loves it when her au pair Fontanelle opens up the dress up closet, rounds up the neighborhood kids, and they all go out for an afternoon of Jolie-Pitting. #MIWDTD
