That unlike other children mine don’t have the privilege of a normal childhood. I have to teach her the harsh realities of this world early in order to protect her from those who would harm her for simply being different.
That black history is American history and to deny it is to deny a piece of what makes this country great. I’m tired of the narrative that non people of color don’t need to know black history as if we aren’t a huge part of what built and continues to build this country.
That being mama doesn’t mean I have to do it all. I’ve reached that point in my second pregnancy where I just can’t do it all. It’s okay to ask for help, it doesn’t make you any less of a mother.
