Eating / Oatmeal every morning. Don’t worry, this list doesn’t stay quite this boring.
Drinking / Tulsi tea. A heartbreaking and stressful world calls for lots of Tulsi tea.
Practicing / Handstands. Good for a new perspective on things and shaking some thoughts around.
Thinking / About all the mamas losing their black babies. For no reason.
Learning / Boxing.
Trying / To have more patience. (Do I say that every month?)
Playing / Road construction, carpenter, cat, fire fighter, police officer, mama raccoon.
Loving / My resourceful, original, brilliant, beautiful, plucky little comedian child who finds joy even as I cry pushing the stroller at yet another protest action.
Reading, me / A gorgeous friend gifted me this gorgeous book – to further my knowledge and skills to support the postpartum moms I work with. Feeling freshly inspired…
Reading, toddler / Shades of Black: A Celebration of Our Children
Remembering / All the ages and stages my child and I have been through.
Wearing / Sunscreen!
Cooking / Cast-iron Pizza!
Working / A new non-profit client and a new postpartum family about to be due. It’s going to be a sweet end of summer and into fall.
Traveling / A week of much needed summer camp in the mountains. So glad to have found this lovely community. A salve for the soul. It feels like we can solve anything up there.
Wanting / More justice. More peace. We can do it.
