ANTI-RACISM ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS Books are an amazing way to get the conversation started about race and racism. But since I’m an activity mom 💁🏾‍♀️ I put together a list of 20+ activities that can also help to spark the conversation. {See the full list using the link in my profile}. Pair them with a book or do them on their own. Use them as a tool to create the space and time for anti-racism conversations to happen in your home or grandparents’ home or classroom or daycare today, tomorrow, next week, next month... And remember doing reading the books and doing activities is just the beginning. AGE: 2 years + MESS LEVEL: low DIFFICULTY TO CREATE: easy SKILLS DEVELOPED: compassion, anti-racist beliefs & actions, colour recognition, language development, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, imaginative play, creativity. _____________ PLaY 🌈CReaTivEly #happytoddlerplaytime

Anyone elses kids driving them crazy during this pandemic?

I have two kids and am currently pregnant with my third. I have always been full time working mom and this pandemic has flipped my life up side down. Instead of going to work everyday and my kids going to daycare/school - we're now together all day every day. Even after almost a year of this I have not been able to adjust. At times I feel like I wasn't cut out to be a mom. I cannot keep up with their attention demands. It's mentally exhausting. I love them to death but I wish I had time away from them like I used to.

Need help with a repair task around the house? I'd be happy to help.

Hi folks, My name is Brian and I'm a 24 year old son of a single mother. Growing up we frequently had problems with things around the house breaking and nobody knowing how to fix them. My mom would usually either call a repair person or replace the item which would result in increased financial hardship. Well as I got closer to and then further in adulthood I became the man of the house and learned how to do home repairs, even working as a contractor for a short time. I would be absolutely thrilled to help any single parents who have any technical issues, be it home repair, computers, anything (most likely just a video chat diagnosis and instructions on my part but I can help you do repairs yourself and save a boatload) I'm also studying electromechanical engineering so don't be afraid to ask if you think your issue is too complicated.

It’s wild how there are people who believe conspiracy theories without evidence but will dismiss a thorough explanation with sources of systemic racism. That’s how fucked up white supremacy is and we need to crush it.

He turned himself in

I got a call from the police that my husband turned himself in for all the violations of the order of protection over the past few months. The detective asked me how long we were married, and at first I said 15 years, but then I remembered that 2020 ended (hallelujah!) and our anniversary is today. 16 years. I couldn’t stop laughing when I realized today was our anniversary. I think seeing the photo of him in custody was one of the best presents I could’ve received today.

Did anyone have a traumatic first birth and an easy second birth?

I had a really negative birth experience five months ago with my first. Thankfully we are both healthy, which is the most important thing, but I can’t do another birth like that one. My husband and I ideally are planning to have at least three kids, and I’m assuming that at some point this feeling of not wanting to go through it again will fade and I’ll feel ready to give it another go. But the more time that passes the more unsure I am this will happen. There has been no change in how I view my delivery over the past five months. I would love to hear stories of people who had traumatic first births and then went on to have smooth, uncomplicated, easy second birth. Please share your stories with me!

Took my daughter on a fat bike ride for her 3rd birthday. She had a blast!
