When Racism Hits The Playground

A few weeks ago when my nephew was staying with us for a few days, we all went to the playground. It’s something that I have done the entire summer with my own boys BUT we have a routine to accommodate it. The routine that works for us includes going to bed the night before a tad bit earlier so we can be up and ready bright and early to arrive at the playground before 9 a.m. You might say, “damn, that’s early!” and I would agree that yes, it is, BUT the trick is, the earlier you get to the … [Read more...]

Sharing My Breastfeeding Experience

Becoming a mother was so important for me. It was everything I had dreamed about and more. I knew when I had conceived and right from that very moment, and forever more, I was a mother. It was important for me to protect that child - mind, body and spirit. I wanted to do what was best, and I was told “breast was best”. Breastfeeding my children was NOT a question, but rather an action I would take as soon as they arrived into this world. I had an AMAZING pregnancy filled with no cravings … [Read more...]

Kids Say the Darndest Things

I have two very inquisitive boys... they ALWAYS ask tons of questions. I know that this is true for most kids (I think most people do) but because I am around children all through the school year, I know that they can truly present us with all types of questions, for better and for worse. I mean, the kids in my classroom ask questions literally 24/7 and, as hard as it is sometimes, I always foster and encourage it. It’s funny to me when parents with babies say, “I can’t wait until little Margo … [Read more...]
