1 more week and i’m back in richmond. i’m really excited and am homesick, miss jess, miss our living room and our bedroom and our kitchen even if the house itself has been such a struggle. i’m feeling really excited and good about all that’s to come. i really really am and it’s really really refreshing.

went to sleep last night well before 10pm, woke up this morning at 7:45am. yesterday was the last day of freedom school and i felt 3 weeks of tiredness all at once. ooooof

my baby is going to seattle this weekend for a qtpoc  birthwerq doula training. i’m so excited for them!!!!!!!!! so proud of them!!!!!!!!

i have a thing about adults telling kids that they’re “really mature” for their age or that they’re “not really” kids. i think it just sets them up for some unhealthy expectations about themselves for the rest of their lives - i know that shit happened to me because i had to grow up fast to translate for my parents and take care of myself when they couldn’t because of language and resource inaccess. 

it’s important for our kids to know it’s okay for them to be kids

these days i’m really trying to remember to let my 9 year old sister know she is still a kid even when she is the tallest and biggest in her classes and is constantly mistaken for and expected to be a teenager.

this shit is just so important, especially for kids of color, little girls of color who start facing fucked up shit far too young because the rationalization is that they’re “really mature” for their age.

white people stay the fuck off of that post
