Where Do We Go From Here? Teaching Our Kids About Hate, Race, and Their Futures

Alton Sterling has died. Alton Sterling was shot by a police man, while on the ground. Alton Sterling was Black. I am a multiracial mom raising three kids just outside of Indianapolis. I easily pass for white, or at least racially ambiguous, and have my whole life. My racial identity always straddles two worlds: caught […]

The Voice of a Teacher Mom

I’m going to be honest–I never thought about this day coming.  Really, I didn’t.  I knew my son would eventually head off to Kindergarten but woah, that was fast.  And now I’m having to deal with all the emotions that go along with it.  I mean the Kindergarten informational meeting was enough for me to […]

Anxiety of The After-School Playdate

The introductory information meeting was for parents to start getting used to the basic surroundings, meet the principal, and get a feel for the process of sending their child off into the world. I was excited for the […]

The Toddler Years: Time to Freak Out About Pre-School

So, like any crazy person, I consider any and all decisions in motherhood just a series of small crises. What should they eat? Organic? Are dyes bad? Rice cereal has arsenic now? And NO, donuts do not count as dinner (even though…they did). Co-sleep, cry-it-out, formula, breastmilk, baby-wearing, strollers, when to transition to a toddler […]
