How do we protect my girls?

I’ve just had the most amazing conversation with my girls. There has been a lot of information overload over the last few days about abuse and gender based violence and, and, and, and…… Our car rides around to our various activities and appointments have been riddled with questions and points of view that we have been chatting about.

Yes, I totally agree that the world that we are raising our children in (and living in) is messed up, broken and filled with evil. And yet, after the few days that have passed – with all of the “scary” news and what this world is capable of – I find myself rising up on the inside, filled with a passion to further empower my girls.

Period talk……

This might be an over share blog post and so for all of my male readers, just know periods and girlie stuff are at the center of my little stage today. So, if you’re not interested in that kind of thing – cheers – see you next time. But if you have a preteen and are a woman – this might just interest you and also, I’d love to hear what you think.

Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….

As you can probably assume based on the date of my previous post – it has been a really long time since I have written anything on this precious little space of mine. Yup, even I look at the date and wonder – what happened? I feel like I’ve ghosted myself. #facepalm Continue reading “Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….”

4 Reasons Why I Tell my Kids the Truth

This week started a little too quickly for me and I haven’t even taken the time to actually just breathe and enjoy a quiet moment alone. Well, here it is – I’m sitting in my car waiting while my 8 year old is having a ballet lesson, my 3 year old is sleeping in the back seat and my 10 year old is in between being “chatty” and peeking over my shoulder to assess what I’m saying about us as a family and possibly her as well……. Let’s be honest – she’s looking to make sure I don’t misrepresent her specifically. Cue eye roll. Continue reading “4 Reasons Why I Tell my Kids the Truth”

Homeschool Car Conversations – Can I drive when I’m 16?

We haven’t done one of these in a very long time and so we just decided to take a video and post it – even if it wasn’t planned. I really hope you enjoy sharing this little moment with us. The girls and I often have very random conversations and honestly – I never thought until now to capture them and share our spontaneous nuggets.

Enjoy

Just so you know, I’ve been wrestling between whether or not I should share these conversations with the World Wide Web. “Conversations” being with my two girls. Eventually Jude will join in but for now it’s just the two of them. Continue reading “The “Talk” with my kids : ‘The Naked Hug’”
