Hey, too much photo revising, watch your classmates….#meme #funnyChinesepictures #amusing #picturerevising #Chineseonline

Hi guys I can’t set here and lie and say it’s been a easy 2019 so far. I feel like the devil has been busy trying to gear my focus off the most important things in life but I refuse to be victimized by the works of the enemy. I got reminded recently to never put others before God because at the end of the day the Lord is the true source of everything. I’m blessed, i won’t (not can’t) complain, and all I can do is move in the direction God has for me ♥️ Stay bless, he’s working and so am I 🙌🏽

Yesterday she had her 1st 'real' piano lesson. She loved it! Was pleasantly surprised that the teacher was a professional yet chatty Caribbean lady who put us both at ease straight away. Her buddy in the class was a little boy who attends a private school in the area. The mum was lovely but genuinely seemed surprised that my daughter didn't also attend a prep school. It was obvious these piano lessons had an ulterior motive. Scholarship in the future perhaps? Our interaction reminded me of a recent podcast I had listened to- pillow talk with (my besties in my head 😂) @candicebrathwaite & @iam_papab (check it out!) regarding private and state school. As a primary school teacher I need to have faith in the system that I work in. But it definitely has changed and not for the better.... (Will speak more about that another day) Education can not start and end at the school gates. Nor does it start and end with reading, writing and maths. More than ever giving our children as many experiences and opportunities is paramount. Her extra curricular activities are numerous... & not cheap (swimming, theatre school etc) but I hope it goes a long way to ensure she has the best start in life. #ambergram

Decluttering can be overwhelming. Having the proper tools and a plan can help curb some of the anxiety that comes from having to get organized. Start with one room or space going in one direction.

This has to be one of my all-time favorite photos of me and the kids. #momlife is hard sometimes. It requires me to give more than I’ve ever given before and in ways I never thought I’d have to. But I also get so much more in return than I ever expected.

This quote is from a Iyanla Vanzant's book, "Acts of Faith: Meditations For People of Color." As I've stated many times, I'm a natural worrier. And even though I've learned to do it less over the years, worry still creeps up on me from time to time, especially as it relates to this entrepreneurial journey (I'm sure many of you can relate).⠀ .⠀ .⠀ When those moments happen, I do a few things, so I can bring back my calmness and centeredness:⠀ * Bring my awareness/thoughts back to the present moment and what's going on now.⠀ * Remind myself to trust the process and the timing of my life.⠀ * Breathe deeply a few times or meditate.⠀ * Focus on what I can do/control at this moment.⠀ * Listen to my intuition about what inspired action to take next.⠀ * Practice gratitude by focusing on the positives in my life and feeling thankful for what's to come.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Black Mom Calm Monthly shares the same tools I use to worry less and create more calm, balance, and harmony in my life.

"Such a hard life, mummy!" Mesmerised by the ducks as we waited for big sisters to finish her piano lesson. 🦆🦆💤

@torontoshay ・・・ As moms, we spend so much time taking care of our little ones before we take care of ourselves that we forget about our own #selfcare.

Have you ever questioned certain words, phrases, common sayings? 🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Slave” versus “Enslaved”. The former used to identify a (black) person as less than human. The latter, an apt replacement of the former, to identify a (black) person’s humanity, human rights, and freedom being negated, stolen, tyrannized. There’s a difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No can do.” “Long time no see.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Expressions originally used to mock Chinese and Native Americans attempts to speak English) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How about: “Uppity” - used by US slaveowners when trying to control the black people they had enslaved ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Diehard” - a term used to condemn men who struggled the longest when executed by way of hanging. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The real McCoy” - a phrase used to ID inventions by Elijah McCoy, a Black Canadian man who invented many things which were widely copied and copied to lesser quality than his originals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤔 Got you thinking yet? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A common quote says that ‘life and death are in the power of the tongue’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How may you change the script spoken over your life and your child’s life today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let’s change the script - create a new chapter in history! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #excellencerules #changethescript #celebrateyourculture #areteacadstudio #areteacademy #fusingculturewithcurriculumcreatively #representationmatters #blackhistoryishistory #blackculture #blackfamilies #blackfamily #blackmotherhood #blackdads #excellencetherule #educationisthekeytosuccess🔑 #creativelearning #unschooling #worldschooling #teachingthemyoung #learnoutsidetheclassroom #learnoutsidethebox @parents @blackvoices @parentslatina @thegosingleparents @parents_who_travel @blackmomsblog @blackwall.st @blackenterprise @theblackmancan @helpingkidsrise @blackdadscook @momsincolor @4thgradeunicorns @griggsgoneglobal @courtneyadeleye @blackmomsconnection

Thank God it's almost Friday. #amirite?! Also, noiremama.com is officially live. 🖤

I’m interrupting #coddletalkthursday with an introduction. I’m Ruth, the mom behind CODDLE. The idea for CODDLE came after the birth of my son. . . After birth I was unprepared for the realities of postpartum. There’s also a whole list of possible postpartum ailments I didn’t know about. I had postpartum anemia and had to do a blood transfusion. I didn’t know anything about umbilical hernia. All throughout pregnancy my hubby and I joked about the bulge above my belly button saying it was the baby’s head. After giving birth, still concerned I sounded the alarm to my PCP and 5 month later underwent surgery. . . There’s so much to know that we don’t know and don’t talk about. I’ll do my best to mention them here. Thanks for following. . . What about you? Tell me about your #postpartum experience. Please share below. #founderpost #dontforgetyou #coddledotco

My sassy little Valentine’s was clearly over taking pictures like always. She was looking at me like are we through or are we done? ••• The last few days have been a struggle. Savannah had an upper respiratory infection and it’s been triggering her breathing. I’ve been so uneasy, not sleeping, and literally watching her like a hawk. But this is just mama life. I’m so glad she’s starting to feel better. ••• Oh and check out that hairstyle 😉 I did that and she actually let me!

Happy love day, I became a mother before I was a woman. I had no idea what self love was and that I could radiate all the feelings of love I needed for myself. . . . . Fast forward 13 years later I have been on a journey to get to a place that I can radiate vibrant love for my whole family while I heal myself from trauma that comes with becoming a mother young, while forgive all mistakes and myself for all I didn't know becoming a #teenmom . . . . Figuring out how I love and how to speak others love language has been a focus of mine. Only way to feel love in this life is through the self. . . . I love you all . . . #akomaweek #blacklove #selflove #blackmommagic #blackmotherhood #emc #ebonymommycircle #motherhoodrising #rewritingmotherhood #ebonymoms #blackparents #radicalselflove #radiatelove

#thursdaytruths Microchimerism, a condition in which women harbor cells that originated in their children even decades after birth. Women almost always acquire fetal cells each time they are pregnant. They have been detected as early as seven weeks into a pregnancy. In later years, the cells may disappear, but sometimes, the cells settle in for a lifetime. These cells, full of our children’s DNA, collect in our hearts, our brains . . . everywhere we can think of. They become part of us, often staying with us for decades upon decades. This is true even if baby we carried didn’t live to be born. The best part is these cells from our babies become apart of us and have been shown to aid us during illness & trauma!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegrowthdontstop #momlifebelike #blackmoms #blackmotherhood #momstruggle #inspiredaily #momlife #singlemoms #motherhood #mominspiration #motherssupported #mommylife #thursdaythoughts #thursdaymotivation #thursdayquotes #thursdaymorning #thursdayfeels #thursdaymood #thursdaythought #momlifebelike #motherhoodstruggles #momblogs #empoweringmothers #blackmomskillingit #blackmommagic #singlemotherhood #momssupportingmoms #sacredsisterhood #mominfluencer

We haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list ❤️ #familyvacation

I was being watched. I could feel it. Sometimes it was so subtle that I felt I was just by chance in their line of sight. . A casual 'hi' as I passed by.  Looking me directly in the eye when I asked a question. . But other times, the pull of their grazes was so strong, I had to learn to not turn and seek them out. The glances would make my heart beat fast and made me want to run for cover. . Because less attention was good. Because I was desperately trying to hold in my secret. I wanted to be a shadow in the sea of kids. I wanted to just make it through this moment to the next stage of my life. . But they refused to leave me behind. . I was smart, so they encouraged my knowledge. Even in the face to the treacherous teasing by other kids. They would call on me even if I didn't have my hand raised. Because they knew I knew the answer. And with each time my name was called or I was asked for my input, my confidence was built so I could speak for myself. . And when my life started crumbing in, they were the ones who made sure, despite hands being tied, that I wasn't left behind.
