We decorated our window with a rainbow of hearts at the beginning of the shelter in place as a symbol of hope but also an offer to help. AD We knew that our neighbors would see it and know we were there for them. I am excited to partner with @Clorox to share the @nextdoor #helpmap. It’s a new tool on Nextdoor that allows you to reach out a helping hand to your neighbors. On the app or website you can offer to pick up groceries, grab medication or do yard work for those who can’t. It’s a great way to stay connected to one another and also to give back. I’ve been amazed by the strong showing of support that our community has offered each other in this time and encourage you to sign up and be there for your neighbors too. Click the link in my bio and check out my stories to see how easy it is to use #helpmap on Nextdoor. Helping others makes us feel good and there’s no better way to get through this than to do it together. . . #strengthinneighbors

Ad We’re all so proud of my niece for graduating elementary school this year! She’s worked hard and even with all the changes she did a great job finishing the year. With lots of businesses still closed here l turned to Walmart.com to get her a gift she can use anytime and l know she’ll love. I live taking her and my boys to the movies do l got her a gift card to AMC theaters! I was able to buy it online and deliver it directly to her email it was so easy to do! You can shop @incommworldwide gift cards for your graduate online at Walmart.com. So tell me are you also celebrating someone special this month?! . . . #celebratewithwalmart #graduation2020 #grads #graduationgifts

Since summer is upon us and this will the first year in a long time that the boys don’t attend a local summer camp I have been working on putting together a summer schedule to ensure we have a fun summer and aren’t stuck to our screens. I am adding in a lot of creative time with the boys. We have clay, tons of craft supplies and will be doing at least two projects a week to keep the summer interesting and inspire hands on learning. Since my boys have been quiet lately getting them to use their hands and share ideas around the dinner table has been fun . Before we start each crafting session I activate @YakTalkBack. This is a free skill in Amazon Alexa and the boys love talking to Yak about their day. It’s a great way to get their minds open and get them engaged. Yak Talk Back is an educational and developmental tool presented in a game-like format, Yak combines rich character voices, original music and cutting edge sound design to serve as a catalyst for conversation . Since kids thrive on routine we’ve begun using Yak twice a day once before our activity time and once before dinner. It’s been a great help in keeping up their spirits in times of social distancing.

I'm so excited for tonights premiere of "I Was Lorena Bobbitt" on Lifetime. Ad I remember hearing about her when I was younger and at the time she was spoke of in a negative way and I never really heard her story. As a woman and feminist I think it's important to learn how she lived . So I've set up my snack tray for tonight and decided to dress up for the premiere, it's been so long since I've worn any pretty dresses since I've been staying home so it's exciting to get dolled up and enjoy some wine, popcorn and a good movie🍿 . . Are you watching the "I Was Lorena Bobbitt" movie premiere tonight? I'll be updating my stories in the movie and would love to watch it together . . . @LifetimeTV #LifetimeTV #IWasLorenaBobbitt #LifetimeLoyals

Soccer is the first and only organized team sport l ever played. I began playing in high school and l can still remember how long l practiced and how hard l worked for months the summer before to make the team. My boys played soccer last summer and are hoping to play in the fall. Today, we ran some drills in our front yard, they have told me before that they feel like they’re not as good at soccer as they are at mountain biking. I’m trying my best to teach them that to be good at something you have to practice, it doesn’t always come easy. Today they said they had a great time playing soccer with mom and dad. Hopefully, later this year they’ll feel confident on the field and reap the rewards of their hard work . Do you know someone in your community that works hard to hone their soccer skills. Now is the time to recognize them, @boostmobile & @motorolaus are giving a chance to win a youth soccer scholarship. This is a great opportunity and I partnered up with them to encourage you to nominate someone in your community to receive it. Also, just by nominating a youth between ages 5-18 you will receive a chance to w i n a Motorola G7. Click the link in my bio to submit a nomination . I cant wait for these boys to get back on the field but in the meantime I’m happy to share my love of ⚽️ and kick the ball around with them . . . #soccerscholars

My heart is heavy this week and this year. It's so hard to raise children in a world that is so broken. I want to look to the future and to brighter days ahead but I know that we can't get there until injustices for people of color exist. I know as a white person I may never truly understand but know that I will stand with my brothers and sisters of color. And as a mother maybe the biggest contribution that I can make is to raise kind humans. Humans that acknowledge skin colors and the value of diversity. Humans that work against racism that harms others. Humans that stand up for what is wrong. I am trying to teach my children so that they can live in a better society that we do now . Change starts within the heart and within the home. Humans are not born to hate and if we are able to raise our children and be an example to them we can help spread kindness and peace that the world so badly needs. I do not have all the answers and I know that my words are not enough so know that I am listening and trying to do better everyday. If you are a parent who is struggling to find the words but wants to talk about race at home and teach your children to do better here are some books that l found, none of this is sponsored, just sharing resources . 📖 📖 📖 Let’s Talk About Race by Julius Lester, illustrated by Karen Barbour . The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi . Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match/Marisol McDonald No Combina by Monica Brown, illustrated by Sara Palacios . The Colors of Us (Paperback) By Karen Katz, Karen Katz . We Are the Change: Words of Inspiration from Civil Rights Leaders Harry Belafonte . I’m sure there are others too feel free to share with me and l will continue to educate my kids and work to inspire change.
