I started really understanding my mother when I had a daughter of my own. There are so many layers to being a girl and growing into a woman, and many of these are passed from mom to daughter...Preparing for the pre-teen years, one conversation, one hug, one mini-argument 😂 at a time...#workingmom

So your baby cries every evening for hours at a time, and the crying has worn you down to the point where you feel like joining in. What could be upsetting your child?  Newborns cry and get fussy sometimes. During the first 3 months of life, they cry more than any other time. But when a baby who is otherwise healthy has several periods a week of fussiness, high-pitched crying, and difficulty being comforted, it’s a sign of a condition called colic.  Colic is defined as crying for more than 3 hours a day, for more than 3 days a week, for at least 3 weeks. But doctors may diagnose a baby as having colic before that point. Colic usually doesn't point to any health problems and eventually goes away on its own.  Swipe left for key facts, signs, symptoms and remedies.👉🏾 #firsttimemuva #confessionsofafirsttimemuva

One of the beauties of having my own family is I finally have the chance to see so much of myself in someone else. . This little guy may look like his daddy, but I swear he carries the queit part of my soul. The part that is fine with solitude, needs nature to feel whole and understands that there is a unique power in being kind. . When I saw him outside by himself today  I took a quick moment to bond with him and have some fun in the snow. . .  #adoptionjourney #writeyouonmyheart #honestmotherhood #lifedocumented #adoptionadvocate #blacklivesmatter #blackmomsblog #therisingtidesociety #wordsfromher #blogger #blackparenting #blackmotherhood #naturalkids #blacklove #adoptionislove #whatreallymatters #adoptee #adopteevoices #bravelove #adoptivefamilies #adopteemovement #transracialadoption #bgwac #circaadopted86 #melaninmagic #blackboysrock #childhoodunplugged #huffpostparents #ipreview @preview.app

The first smile, the first step, the first word: Most parents remember exactly when their baby accomplished these big goals. But before baby reaches each one, you’re probably dying to know when to be on the lookout for the important milestones, camera at the ready. And while it’s helpful to understand how baby development generally unfolds, don’t feel like you have to obsessively monitor your child’s progress against the baby milestone chart. Remember, every child is different, so you can expect your little one to hit his/her picture-worthy milestones at their own pace. Source:TheBump #firsttimemuva #confessionsofafirsttimemuva

F E A T U R E  F R I D A Y ✨ This mama's caption will speak to many if not all mamas out there! If you're having sleep training drama right now, pray on it! You WILL get through this! 🌿  Thank you for sharing your beautiful capture with us @cocospring - your photo has been featured by @thechristianmumcollective 💕 🌿 Follow and tag @thechristianmumcollective to encourage other mummies!  #repost @cocospring ・・・ Sleep struggle has been real lately.  Consequently, we are all a lil sleep deprived too. I guess it's the over active stage where he is learning a lot and has a lot of processing going through his mind. He definitely wants to try new things out- talk more, trying to stand, but not at 3am. Plllssss  See Father, help this little darling get the rest he needs. Calm him and put his mind at rest so he can relax. I pray you have this all under control. IJN! Amen.  ___________________________________ #motherhood #letthembelittle #sleepdeprived #londonmama #mumlife #blackmotherhood #cocospring #prayerfortoday #healthykids #smartkid #sweetchildofmine  #wishesforbaby #ig_beautiful_kids #family #mumboss #instafamily #mummybloggeruk #liveauthentic #darlingmovement #babyboyfashion #linen

My phone has around 1,000 photos like this.  Blurry, funny faces, and some one pouting but i tend not to delete them because at least all 3 of my kids are in the picture together.  I've been caught up with "Instagram worthy" images and not being able to produce them had definitely not helped my depression so here is to just living.  Every moment im breathing is a good moment that only gets better with my family.  #minimallyus . . . . . #onedayatatime #momof3 #sahd #blackmotherhood #perfectlyblended #mixedbabies #motherhoodunplugged #parenting #motherhood #stillcarryingon #cmaadventures #babywearing #babywearingwhileblack #depression #ppd
TAM team members were traumatized by the video footage viewed from @shaunking ’s recent reporting of this young mother and child’s assault. It took us a few days to gain composure to post about it. While the trauma has diminished, the urgency to share this mother’s voice remains. Know her story. . . This is The American Mom story. . . The charges against Jazmine Headley have since been dropped. . .

No influence is as powerful as that of the parents. . . . Our children are always watching and listening to us. Even when we don’t think they are, they pick up on our energy through words and body language. It’s important we model the same request we ask from our children. That doesn’t mean we are perfect all the time, it means we move with the intentionality of showing our kids how it’s done. So if mama is whooping daddy’s butt in a card game (because I always do), he models how to show sportsmanship while I model how to self celebrate 😜 . . . 📸: @kendramlee  #thewells #consciousparenting #raisinggoodhumans #breakingbadcycles

R had jello + toasted brioche (we fancy). for dinner.✌🏾🤷🏾‍♀️ N looked at R’s plate, then looks at me and exclaims, “are you okay!?” ☺️🤗🤣😙 seriously it’s been SUCH a week (month! year!) and NOT to glorify pain and suffering, but it has brought breakthroughs + new unexpected insights.🙌🏾✨✍🏾and my perspective has changed/shifted/deepened. I am shook + inspired ya’ll.🌿 limited weekend and after school errands. instacart on rotation. more sweets than usual. more screen time than usual.... and I don’t feel bad about any of it. living our best life changes day to day, moment by moment. the most loving thing we can do - for everyone - is to be less judgmental - with ourself. all around. I don’t pat myself on the back too much when I’m doing what may be more typically considered #goals: going to yoga, hiking, preparing healthy meals, eating well, spending quality time with my kids. the less we think of our behavior as good or bad and more as helpful or harmful, the kinder we can be to ourselves when we’re not quite living up to our own images of ourselves. perhaps the key is being gentle with ourself, however we show up. I’m rooting for us all.❤️✨ #soulworksoulhealing #justbreathe #notetoself #gentlereminder #blackgirljoy

“Our baby gives herself to us completely. There is no hesitation, no reservation, no holding back, no coldness, no craft, no tremor or fear in her love. Although our relationship may encompass tears, frustration, even fury, it is an utterly reliable bond. As it grows, her love is literally unadulterated. Her love is wholly of the child, pure in its essence as children are in their direct passions. Children do not love wisely, but perhaps they love the best of all.” Louise Erdrich . . You have been “outside” of my body just as long as you were “inside”. Happy 9 months Kaiza 🎉 . . . 📸: @kendramlee  #daughters #kaizawells #9months #thebaby

#repost @plantpoweredsoul @rawfromtheearth As #melanatedbeings we should b eating real, life foods with color to feed our #melanin Table sugar has been tested to b more addictive than cocaine, plus, we shouldn't b consuming most things that r white anyway. We have to understand that most doctors don't do nutrition like that, so even tho they know FOOD IS MEDICINE they still prescribe pills to mostly suppress illnesses. Parents n the #blackcommunity MUST attain this knowledge to pass to their children.

Sept 2015 - My first solo trip with my kiddos after moving to a new country. I was homesick and hadn’t manage to make any friends but I had the internet and Google maps. A few weeks before this I saw Norwich Cathedral online and I made up my mind that I was going to get there. We made it and had our first train and city bus experience. We also navigated a city tour I pieced together and managed to not get lost. Prior to this, I had never used any form of public transportation, aside from a plane. From this day, a few things have stuck with me 1) growth is vital and sometimes occurs outside your comfort zones 2) travel is travel - it’s more about the everlasting memories than destination 3)strive to do things you enjoy - positive energy converges to those around you
We are extremely touched and humbled by each person that has donated, shared, and supported #operationyoungsanta! In 10 days (Christmas Eve) Dereon and his buddies (kids ranging from 5 and up) will go out passing out Care Packages to the homeless on the West Side of Chicago. This isn’t just for those that are less fortunate, but also for the kids to see that Christmas isn’t all about receiving. It’s a blessing to be able to give and to encourage. Every dollar and item donated goes to this cause. Thank you for trusting us and helping us to be a blessing to others. Merry Christmas!

In the winter I cloak myself more protectively than other seasons. It always seems to be the time when I deal with being mentally exhausted, which is when my triggers are on high alert. . But the beauty of getting stuck in your own mind is you get to know yourself very intimately. You learn how to trust the instinct of how you FEEL, which makes it easier to accept the moments and see them for what they are. . The remnants of abuse have a funny way of sticking around. They wax and wain from dormant to active in a moments second. . It's with this understanding that I finally realized why I am so protective of my space and my being. It’s an act of compartmentalizing that allows me to recognize if how I am feeling or reacting is because the silent narrative abuse writes in a victims mind (or I am reacting because its just that time of the month and my hormones are just soo awesome.) At some crazy times is both. �. But the gift is I can recognize it.  By recognizing it gives me more freedom to breathe. To deal with my triggers as they come and know that I will be ok. . . . .  #adoptionjourney #writerslife #writeyouonmyheart #honestmotherhood #lifedocumented #adoptionadvocate #blacklivesmatter #blackmomsblog #therisingtidesociety #wordsfromher #blogger #blackparenting #blackmotherhood #naturalkids #blacklove #adoptionislove #whatreallymatters #adoptee #adopteevoices #bravelove #adoptivefamilies #adopteemovement #transracialadoption #lifetimehealingadoption #onlyinmn #circaadopted86 #mondaymotivation #melaninmagic #thisisme #ipreview @preview.app
I added a journal section to my website b/c sometimes a caption just isn’t enough. My first post up on the website is where I discuss how my rant to find ‘black Santa’ took me on a journey into understanding what I want East West Mama to attain to. Please give it a read or skip it all and read the link to the article, White Motherhood.  It encompasses all that I’ve personally faced as a brown women and mother. The article helped me realize my deeper need to be there for those in this journey who’s voices may not be heard in this perfect white washed social media world of mothers. EastWest Mama was created as a place for parents to have an easier time adjusting to parenthood, to help them along their journey into this space. And what I am finding out is that parenthood looks different for all races and who we identify as. Now I see the main goal for EastWest Mama is to create a home for ALL those who walk this journey, especially those without a strong social media presence. #welcomehome *visit my stories for parts of the article that inspired me

Let the dead things die.  As things naturally and unnaturally fall away from our lives it’s important to remember that those things are dead and can serve us no more. • Like leaves in the winter and fall, the dead things in your life may look still beautiful. You may be tempted to to pick  that fear, relationship or situation back up because even in their lack of usefulness, they still attract you. • Let the dead things die. • Don’t water the shedding leaves of your life. Water the seeds of new habits, congruent interactions and love. When we let the cycle of death run its course, what once took from us can fertilize the very ground we sow new and good seed in. • That can only happen when we put those leaves, those things God is shedding from us, down.  #thehealingcircle

As a mom, I want to always make my children’s home a safe place for them to be completely 100% themselves. So many kids don’t feel safe in their own homes and my heart hurts for them. My children, I hope, will always feel safe and happy at home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment 💗 if you agree!  #momlife #stayathomemom #mommyblogger
I hold this picture so dear, even though the background makes me cringe. . Those curtains. . That bedspread. . The mirror. . But my youngest grabbed my phone, and said “Mom! Say cheese!” . She didn’t care about the boots on the floor, as finding the perfect picture angle in our hotel room was not a priority of hers. .  Instead, she focused on me. .  We were having a good time... and she wanted to capture it, with a 6-year old lens. . Finding this picture (among many others!) was quite a  reminder to this perfectionist mom... to take time and view life through a child’s lens. . This is how she sees me. . It’s not always pretty. I’m certainly isn’t perfect. But this is her view. And her view is powerful. ✨
What no one told me about: Belly Binding 1. It’s a sacred healing rooted in African, Asian, Latin American and Indigenous cultures. 2. That’s it part of my postpartum recovery.  3. It’s not a Kardashian waist cincher or corset, doesn’t promise a pre-pregnant body or an hourglass waistline shape.  4. Its a long strip of fabric - muslim cloth that gets wrapped around the belly along with warm oils from the ribcage to the hips. 5. It speeds up  and supports healing of the uterus. 6. It supports the abdominal wall, your spine and posture realignment after birth. 7. Constant pressure on your torso hastens healing reducing water, air and fat cells. 8. It reduces lower back pain.  9. It stabilizes loose ligaments. 10. Your doctor may have no clue about belly binding so you’ll have to seek the help of a doula or midwife. . . Let’s talk binding. Have you tried it? Was it helpful for you?  Also click the link in my BIO for a tutorial about the different types of binding. . . 📷: @dccansphotos #dontforgetyou #coddledotco #whatnoonetoldyou
