Spent the morning with this amazing group of women from @familiesofcolorseattle's Mom and Baby Group! We talked about how self care starts with the messages about ourselves that we take in as truth - messages we tell ourselves or that are communicated by others. We talked about when our non-American parents want to care for our babies in a way we disagree with. We talked about whether it's possible to think about self care in a non-Western, privileged way. (Hint: it is, but it takes some doing!) . All while toddler-wrangling, baby-nursing, being spit up on, and infant-soothing. 👶🏽👶🏿👶🏻👶🏾 . Besides my uterus wanting to burst from all the cuteness, I felt so lucky that part of my job is to encourage and learn from moms from so many backgrounds. Thank you, FOCS, for your work to gather and empower!! . . . #ilovemyjob #lifecoach #selfcareformoms #babiesbabiesbabies #focs
Sacred moments. My dad's dad passed away last night, and I'm so thankful we got to see him one last time before he went. I'd never seen my grandparents be physically affectionate, so it was especially tender to see my grandma sit at his bedside, looking him full in the face, holding his hands and sometimes gently stroking his leg. When I went to say goodbye, she held my hand out to hold his arm with hers. 💔 . We love you, Popo! Thanks for showing us what highest commitment to family and community look like.
