It's #NationalIceCreamDay and honestly I'm not even sure if ice cream is the cure for this heat. But how cute are these two!?!

  • This was the laugh I needed this morning. CharlieB is a complete mess. #ToddlerRoast #roastsession #toddlerlife #BrooklynMomBlogger #BrooklynMom #Motherhood
  • "Hey Wexi! Look we're at swim class " 🤣🤣🤣 ☕Yea, I wished that she was saying that. The truth is Miss CharlieB is terrified of the water. .
☕This makes week 3 at her new swim 🏊🏽‍♀️school (she started at our local YMCA before Lexi was born, and did 1 session after, but the scheduling there became extremely difficult for me to work with both girls) .
☕She's starting to come around, although I have to bribe her. As soon as we start changing, she starts yelling "out Mommy, out." She's definitely mastering three at of negotiation bc today she negotiated *ice cream *black cookie (Oreo) *chicken rice (any meat, oxtail preferably with white rice) and something else I didn't quite catch ...ALL TO PARTICIPATE in the class. And I agreed, bc she's always been afraid of the water. So I need to make sure she gets somewhat comfortable (even if that means she never becomes an Olympic swimmer 🤣) and that she learns water safety, bc lets face it one of the leading deaths of babies, toddlers, and children is drowning. .
☕Lexi is my water baby, but she has to learn water safety too. I actually started her later than I preferred (bad Mommy) but its better later than never, right? 💗💗💗💗Proud mommy moment (with a little coaching and negotiation) Miss CharlieB actually let the swim instructor put her under and she didn't cry. It also helped that as soon as she came up I praised her with high fives and kisses so she didn't get the chance to perform the water works lol. .
☕Lexi went under and looked at us like we were insane for asking for a high five and what happen. She seems to not have much emotion for swim🏊🏽‍♀️ class, she's there just to drink the pool water (work in progress 🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️) .
☕Do you have your little one on swim class or plans on enrolling them? .
☕Anyone have a little one that is terrified of the water too?

I've been in a funk...(a deserved one 🤷🏾‍♀️) but yesterday I remembered why I made certain decisions... The pure joy on my face is nothing in comparison to how her (their) day went.

  • This week was rough (from a small car accident to my child falling down a flight of stairs as I watched in horror) ... but no matter what you continue to allows us to be Great. Happy Father's Day!!! (S/N he complains everytime he finds out I posted a picture of him, so this is my solution 🤣🤣🤣 🤷🏾‍♀️)

I've watched you grow as a son, brother,  cousin, friend, uncle,  and now husband and father and I couldn't be more proud of you.

This week I wanted to quit. I started feeling overwhelmed by Social Media and felt my priorities were misaligned. I felt like I wasn't getting the support I need for this blog...and then he reminds me... I've come this far without support from anyone. I've never achieved many goals on the basis of support, so why should this be any different. He reminded me of who I am and what I've become. .
.
.
I started this blog a few months ago simply bc I saw: ☕ misinformation being spread
☕ not enough mother's that look or live like me (on social media)
☕ wanted an outlet to share my journey and let others know they aren't alone
☕ talk about real parenting issues
☕provide provide valuable information, resources, and insight for families. .
.
☕ I rarely quit anything... so why should this be any different?
  • June is Pride Month, and in Brooklyn, TODAY is BROOKLYN PRIDE DAY. I decided to compile a few books together for various age groups.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☕️As a minority mother, it is important that inclusion and representation exist. This helps self image, and so I have selected a few books that highlight key issues.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(The first two are children👶🏽👧🏽 books) 📚👶🏽👧🏽It Feels Good To Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, by Theresa Thorn 📚👶🏽👧🏽When Aidan Became a Brother, by Kyle Lukoff
📚Stone Wall: Breaking Ground in the Fight for Gay Rights, by Ann Bausum
📚Alan Cole is NOT a Coward, by Eric Bell 📚We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir, by Samra Habib
📚Little & Lion, by Brandy Colbert

  • Yes it's her Godmommy's birthday, (@soniques_gifts) We'll get back to that Gemini in a few 🤣🤣🤣 We interrupt her bday to wish this Diva a Happy HALF 1/2 birthday!!!!! (We love you Sonia)

My Baby is 2 1/2 today!!! Yes I'm shouting out her half birthday bc I will find any excuse to celebrate life.  Ain't no reason to wait till life is over, we celebrating while we are breathing. 
Too my incredibly Smart, Sweet, and Sassy Sagittarius You make life feel like it's dessert 🤣🤣🤣 My baby enjoyed her pasta session with @adorjephotography . I don't have many pictures from my childhood and I can't stand my cell phone pictures so we are making memories and capturing it. Every time CharlieB looks at these pictures she say "Charlotte cooking "bc my baby loves to cook. 
Btw that is real food and those are her real pots and pans that she uses at home.
