Beautiful, Smart, Talented, Funny, Creative, and completely smitten by the Grace of God.
In order to love people well, Kathy has partnered with me, and Josh and Karleigh, to open our home to more people than I can count, lived on two college campuses, led DiscipleNows, counseled late into a hundred nights, put out chairs for worship, scrubbed bathrooms in rented church spaces, served in dozens of Vacation Bible Schools, learned and led hundreds of songs to make much of Jesus and maintained her rock solid faith. For decades she has been the primary caretaker and manager for her parents and brother, all the while loving, teaching and serving me and her children well. She has taught elementary and middle schoolers for twenty years, often contributing to great events, programs, plays, and school musicals in addition to every school day in the classroom. Her commitment to teach meant gaining a Masters degree (4.0 average) and National Boards in her subject area (really glad that's over😬). She has believed God when most of the wives I know would have balked. Kathy has shown me much grace. I can't imagine anyone laughing more than we've laughed, or caring more deeply for the church than this girl. She is a praying mom, as they grew up and especially now, when our kids and their incredible spouses are being used by the Lord in powerful ways. I'm a very grateful and much blessed man. Kathy Maze, I Love You.

It wasn’t the first time we’d done that with any of our kiddos but there was something significant about today’s time we had with this sweet boy. And to his surprise (and honestly my own) I even pulled in a line from Black Panther (💁🏽‍♀️) that I’ve been thinking about a lot since that moment. If you’ve seen the movie you’ll remember the scene when T’Challa is fighting for his life and his mother shouts, “Show him who you are!!!” in a moment of sheer desperation. It was almost as though his life depended on it. In some ways it did. And T’Challa rose to the occasion. Mustering up everything he had left inside him to do just that. Today I didn’t get to quote the line verbatim. Instead, I said “show THEM who you are” but either way, it resonated even within me as I spoke these words to my son.
The days are long, guys. Us mamas out there know this to be true. The years are short. On those days that feel ever so long, not only do we want our kids to rise to the occasion but we also need someone to remind us of who WE are as parents, women, friends and general human beings. Who does God say I am? It’s a pretty basic question but in moments of desperation in can mean the difference between life and freedom or death.
I don’t always get it right. Our kids don’t and won’t always either. One thing I’m also thankful for today? The ability that I have with each new day for God to show me who He is so I can show them who I am because of Him. Sometimes I feel like God’s cheering us all on and shouting like T’Challa’s mom: “SHOW THEM WHO YOU ARE!” because He, more than anyone else in this world, knows exactly who that person is.
Who you are is perfect. Who you are is gifted. Who you are is kind and compassionate and generous. WHO YOU ARE is funny and creative and talented. Who you are is absolutely who you were created to be. A wonderful testament of His glory and grace. I’m here for it. And on days you need a reminder, I’m here for that too. Rest easy, my friends. Peace over you tonight. xo

Little late but better later then ever, my father: arrived yesterday with my mom from #israel just on time for Father’s Day, me and my dad were two deferent people when I was a kid, he was 22 when he had me, way to young to raise kids, I didn’t have much in common with him I thought, I actually didn’t know him like I do now, I’m a lot like him for my surprise, he found his way to connect with me and I appreciate him for that, he doesn’t say much but he is there when needed, a heart of gold , a gentleman, a man of his word, sweet and funny, so give your parents a chance even if they let you down as kids, you might Winn the father you always wanted to have and learn that everybody deserve a second chance , I got mine and I love him a lot, happy Father’s Day dad.

Я падала с деревьев,когда лазили с пацанами,дралась,страдала асфальтной болезнью,причём на лице,пришла однажды с кухонным ножом в ноге,после игры в ножички и куча ада на постоянке.
Мама очень надеялась,что я вырасту и это пройдёт.
Но когда прошлой зимой я улетела к родителям под машину с ногами,просто закрывая дверь,смыла 7 Айфон в унитаз,упала на эскалаторе м ВДНХ в новых джорданах,пролетела 5 ступеней и заполучила здоровый шрам на жопу в виде ступеньки,мама не удивилась.Она вообще перестала удивляться.
Только вчера мы с @otmorozz случайно обварили меня в кофейном кипятке и я поняла,что нельзя просто так взять и избавиться от своего везения,главное как его принимать.
❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️
Расскажи самую смешную историю своего везения в комменты ,которая случилась с тобой и самых смешных я выставлю у себя ;)
***
My mom always was scared for me,that I die at a young age😅i was falling down from trees,playing with guys,kissed the ground,fought a lot and once came home with a knife in my leg.
Mom hoped that I grow up and I did,but nothing changed.
Just last winter I fell under my parents car opening the back door😅washed my iPhone in the toilet and fell in the subway on escalator,was falling for 5 steps and got a huge scar on my ass looking like a stair.
And just yesterday we boiled me in boiling coffee 😅so I understood it wouldnt get any better with Ages,hope my kids won’t inherit this.
If you re the same “fail champion”write your funny stories to comments and if it’s really badass I’ll post it.

I was crying today and thought of the time we all jumped into the kill and the hotdog vendor told our parents or when your dad caught us smoking ciggs behind the post office and you were laughing at me because i was begging your dad not to tell my mom crying my eyes out. I know i will never really understand or believe your gone, but i will also never run out of stories for my friends, my kids, grandkids and whatever else this crazy life brings. You gave me enough stories, i do not need no more. I wanna continue the good path and make you proud. Love you milkshake, cousin jumbo!

My funny valentine ❤️I love being silly with my kiddo. I love when he wakes up in the morning and comes to get under our covers and say good morning. I love when he comes home and fills me in on his day's gossip or tells me a long-winded historical fact. I even love when he takes me step by excruciating step through his video game. I love seeing his toys litter the floor even though it drives me crazy. I love when he procrastinates at bedtime by asking me about my day or to tell him a story about when I was a kid. I love when a new thought or concept clicks with him. I love when he says, "Mama". I love being his mom... I am absolutely heartbroken for the parents who will not get to give their kids one last hug tonight. Gun Control NOW.

When people look at children they notice the way their nose is shaped like dad’s or how they have the same color hair as mom’s. They talk about how they have grandpa’s eyes and grandma’s stubbornness. But for me, my kids are dogs, and while we may not be their parents and we might see them growing up to look like someone else, they definitely get their personality from us. Maisie is so purely me it’s not even funny. She’s destructive and beautiful, and snotty when she wants, but a giver almost all of the time. She has attitude for days and isn’t afraid to show it. She’ll make you laugh by doing something stupid, and you’ll smile when she looks straight into your heart likes she’s always known you. They may not be human children and I may not have made them myself but I love them every bit like I did. Too many people go through life having dogs but never really seeing them. I love that I spend everyday learning something new and giving them the best life. Because when you love a dog and they love you back, there’s nothing better in the world.

New report shows that if you apply to college using early decision, early action or some variation of this you're more likely to be admitted. Not surprising folks.
This took me down memory lane.
Way back when to being a senior in high school. I got off from work at Target 🎯 and my Dad picked me up. I got in the car and there was a big envelope on the front seat.
It was from Northwestern University and was my acceptance offer. Funny thing is I explicitly told my parents not to get the mail bc I wanted to get it whenever the NU news would arrive. My Dad told me "I could tell by the size of the letter it was a yes and I wanted to be there to see your reaction!"
My mom was over the moon 🌙 because she went to NU too and it was a dream to have one of her kids attend too.
So I only applied to one college in high school and lucky it was enough.
Now let's talk about medicine a completely different story. First time I applied I didn't get in anywhere. And I posted every rejection letter as a collage on my wall as a constant reminder of failure and to do better.
Went on to grad school and learned AMCAS made an error (computer glitch) in my med school applications hence the zero acceptances. But alas a little too late from them and reapplied to med school and received multiple acceptances but the first was the sweetest bc no matter what I knew I would be a doctor!

#lorm_apr2018 #lifeofrealmoms

Most wonderful days of motherhood are those days when our little ones start speaking. Every word coming out of their mouth makes you happy. So only I started calling my little A as a parrot.

I am going through that phase where she follows people around and surprises me every day with new words she has learnt. Though it sounds cute, funny sometimes it makes me feel conscious too.

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. My heart melts down when she says love you, mamma, she makes me feel better even during stressful days in office when she calls up and says miss you, mamma. That mother in me feels super happy and gets a sense of satisfaction when she hugs and says Nandu mamma (my mom). But few of her words really makes me feel uncomfortable and confused;

1. Recently when we were travelling on the train and we were playing casually, all of sudden she hugged and said dummy (fat lady)
2. She tells me not shout if my voice is louder, finally what we teach them comes backs to us.

My parents were both light drinkers but cocktails together before dinner was religion (bourbon and water for him, vodka tonic for her) and here they are doing just that on what looks like a great summer afternoon, in the front yard of the house where I grew up. I think it’s so funny these duck boots have become so fashionable of late, because this was his uniform the whole time I was growing up. He was in the timber business and he always had to be ready for a cruise in the woods. And my Mom’s get-up, well she just always looked that cute and classic and how she did it with six kids I’ll never know. 💛❤️💛

They make me want to be better. The geographic distance between us really stinks, but emotionally they are always in my hip pocket. Mom, thanks for these two and for who you raised us to be. And Dad, we can barely breathe for missing you, but you’d be so proud today and every day. #nationalsiblingsday

Ever since my sister reposted the story about all my fertility issues, I’ve had so many people reach out to me to either let me know they can relate, or to say I’m sorry, or even to offer advice.
I’m so appreciative! Thank you all!

Funny how you think you will never be able to survive certain things in life...not having kids, losing someone you’re close to, etc.

Mike and I have gone through both of these issues over the last few years and I’m definitely stronger now than I’ve ever been...mentally.

3 miscarriages, at least 2 ectopic pregnancies (1 this year that nearly ruptured...and that was NOT planned). With so many issues even getting pregnant, this was not something i ever thought I’d need to worry about in my 40’s! But proven wrong! IUI, IVF, nearly becoming foster parents, etc. Some of it working out only to shortly fall apart after...and some failed attempts.
It has been an insane 12 years of fertility drama that I only hope we can finally put behind us.

Couple this with losing my mom, who was my business partner and best friend, a year and a half ago....I have no idea how I didn’t crack!

But like they say...God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. ❤️ So much love to you all for all the love you’ve shown me! 😘

❤️
Saturday’s workshop started off with each comic taking the stage. The others get to call out their first impressions of you - “looks like a smart guy, looks like a douche, what’s with the hair, your clothes don’t match, you seem shy, you seem angry, bitchy, sweet, shallow, must drive that kinda car, must be gay/straight, must be a mom” etc etc.
🙀
Then they’re allowed to ask whoever is on stage “third date” questions: you have a lisp, is that hard? Why did you get married? What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? You don’t have kids - why? Do you like your parents? On and on. Relentless, raw, real questions.
🤭
See, the brutal thing about doing comedy is that it demands a full awareness, and responsibility, for how you occur in this world.
🙏🏼
And you really can’t get offended about it because guess what? Those first impressions are usually right, on some level. And we only conveniently “take offense” when we aren’t using those perceived traits to our own advantage - to be “special,” to be better than you, to stand out, to fit in, to get ahead, to hide behind. And that BS doesn’t fly on stage, and it’s certainly not funny. You can’t be funny if you’re hiding an agenda - if you aren’t willing to be seen.
🎤
This process makes me a better writer and a more compassionate person. Cuz it’s hard as hell. So if you’re around in Denver April 3, I would love to see you at the show! If you’re in a big enough city, go see a local showcase and give them some love. We all need it.

One of my mom and dad’s close friend, come to think about it, I don’t even remember his name because me and my brother called him Uncle McDonald’s. Him and his wife were married for some years but were finding it hard to conceive. Due to that, he poured out a lot of love and energy towards my brother and I. He would pick us up, once a month and take us to the ill McDonald’s with the fun house. Looking back it’s funny because if I offered my son McDonald’s now days, he would probably look at me crazy for a minute and ask for Chick-Fil-A. But being children of African expats, McDonald’s is out of the question if there’s rice at home and there’s ALWAYS rice at home. So it was such a big deal for me get that experience and that kids toy!! My parents told me that him and his wife have 2 kids now, I’m sure he’s giving them all the love they need. Uncles and aunties had it easy in them days, now days you got to buy kids iPads and laptops to impress them and shit.

The other night Ty and I had our first date night in a long while- shout out to off days, we took the fam to Miami *my first time 😬* It was amazing. Beautiful steak dinner, great company and wait for it.. adult conversation, no kids 🙀 I tried snow crab for the first time, had incredible hand crafted cocktails, put a dress and heels on, and soaked up the perfect Miami heat night. Mid dinner we get a text from our friends who were watching Jax- a picture of him at his first “sleepover.” He stayed up late with other young kids, watched movies & ate pizza. Needless to say, Ty & I teared up mid dinner and talked about how amazing having a family is. Isn’t it funny? We as parents crave that alone time, to get a break from parenting. And the second we get a break we spend the night showing off pictures of our kids and talking about how amazing it is being parents. Too funny. And after the amazing night we almost went out, but instead we came home to our sweet boys, and had our own sleepover with Jaxon. I woke up early (may or may not had a small headache from those bomb jalapeño margs), to this. My boys sleeping together oh so sweetly. It was the perfect refresher to jump back in to mom mode. I love these guys. What’s everyone’s favorite way to reset, parents or not?? Mine is a date night & sleep 💤 ☺️ #thesearethedays #motherhood #myboys #GaffFam #momlife #Miami

Today’s topic: Switchy-Switch 👩👨
I lOvE how this movie proves the issue of go-to-work mom doesn’t care about his children and dad is all about go-to-work w r o n g 💓 My mom works, my dad works, my brother and I spend the weekdays without them but every night and weekend both of my parents will always spare their time for us, doesn’t matter how busy they can get. My mom cooks, my dad cooks too, they will work together at the kitchen to cook my fave dishes or my brother’s. Just because dad is a man doesn’t mean he can’t slay the house job, just because mom is a woman doesn’t mean she can’t shine on her career. And parents are all madly in love with their children regardless of their roles in the family. Love and appreciate your mom and dad no matter what okay!!💙💛💜

My parents, Larry and Donna, met in 1954 and were married just two months later. By the time my Mom died, they had been together for 58 years.
.
Early in their marriage my Mom waited tables part time, but for the most part she stayed at home and raised their 8 kids. She was thoughtful, kind, creative and well known for her hair.
.
My Dad was the main breadwinner, and was also a great father to his kids. He was funny, smart, and charmed people everywhere he went.
.
My Dad recently passed away and while going through things I found a stack of old Polaroids from before I was born. This one was taken in 1972, when they had already been together for 18 years!
.
Before he died, I asked him what he wanted us to do with his ashes. His response was “You can just throw me up on the shelf with your mother.”
.
And that’s where he is today.

I mentioned it a few posts back, how it was inspired by my experience of sitting at the foot of my parents bed and talking to them most nights before I went to sleep. My childhood had its challenges, but this had an important effect on my life. So at the end of last school year I started doing this with my kids. After the nightly fight to please just put on jammies, do the teeth brushing, putting sleepy sauce (lavender) on their feet, I zip sonny into his sleep sack and tuck London into her bed, I lay next to her with sonny and we say prayers, then, it’s talk time. And this is the time London really loves to talk 😆 forget trying to get a word out of her after school, or when she’s doing her art or watching her show, but come talk time, she is ready to chat hard💁‍♀️This is when all the good stuff gets said and the questions come out. And She regularly baffles me with her funny smart thing she says and I’m intrigued by the thoughts of her little inner world. Yeah, kids are not idiots or as oblivious as we think. they are picking stuff up faster than we realize and “yikes” to that. It‘s also time to hear her talk about things that are troubling her, and we to try to work through it out loud. Sonny tries to keep up and let’s out little rambles and I can hardly make out a work but he’s got a lot to say too 😆We also do this some mornings for a few minutes, except in my bed. A few days ago London asked me “mom why are there hairs growing in your nose holes?!” And “I hope that never happens to me when I grow up” 🤣 I informed her that she already has a couple, and thats life, and that they protect our nose from germs and stuff 😆 i probably should google it cause i don’t have all the answers.🤷🏼‍♀️🤔 I also just want to say, that there are many nights I am just DONE by bedtime and I feel like skipping it or rushing through the routine so I can clock out of mom duty and do my things & watch bachelor😆And yeah some nights i do. And many to most days I will really feel like i dropped the ball and missed the mark in my motherhood and adulting, BUT, I’ve yet to regret a night of talk time, and it feels like one thing we are doing right 💛🙏

What is a punk party, you might ask? Well, it’s when your son’s best friend, who is also named Desmond, loves the Ramones so much that he asks if he can invite his friends and their parents to hang out and listen to loud music in the garage. The hosts provided ear plugs for kids and adults alike, and then they blasted the Ramones, the Clash, and some Social Distortion. There were also 2 children’s books about punk rock on the kitchen table, plus various signs saying punk party.
.
But let’s face it. Most punk parties probably don’t have quinoa salads and salads with homegrown lettuces and radishes, plus a cooler full of local beers and sparkling water. This was a pretty tame punk party.
.
Still, an awesome punk party it was. There were water balloon fights, which went splendidly until someone actually aimed well enough to get a 4-year-old girl soaking wet and she ran sobbing to her mom. (Come on, kid. That’s not very punk!) And there were sprinkler races in the sunlight.
.
Mostly, I stood to the side for a moment, in awe of our lives, these sweet friends, our kids growing up together, how the food was good and not the point. I love these funny, weird kids our kids love dearly. Be yourselves, kids. Keep on being yourselves.

My parents are coming to visit in August 😭😭😭 I literally tear up (or cry) almost every time I think about having them here and we seriously cannot wait!
That being said, so many of you have reached out and asked how you can help our family, which has humbled us immensely. Hear this though: we do not expect anything from anyone and even feel a little funny asking for help, but we know we need it and so many of you have asked and so below are the 3 biggest ways to help right now:

1. I’ve put together an adoption registry list of items that would truly bless our family of things we cannot get in Congo that my parents will bring over when they come visit. As you can imagine before we left we guessed on sizes and things they would like. Now, 9 weeks in, we know sizes/they’ve grown, and I know what holds their attention/what gives them joy. I also pretty much only brought dresses and rompers for Izzy but lately she’s been wanting to wear shirts and shorts like her brothers, but bc I didn’t bring many, she’s been wearing her brother’s, which is something I did as a kid too, but I know she would like her own clothes and sharing is something they *will* do but have been forced to do in the orphanage their whole lives, so allowing them to have their own clothes is something I care about immensely. If this is something you would like to help with you can find our registry in my profile.
2. Dvds!!! Many of you messaged me saying you have old dvds that you or your kids don’t use anymore and that you would be able to share a few! We aren’t able to receive mail here so I couldn’t accept your generosity then, but now with my parents visiting...we can!!! The kids love all things Paw Patrol, Dora, Mickey, Super Heros, Princess Sofia, etc. Mom and dad love anything funny but at this point we will happily accept any DVDs you can offer! Another way is helping with Data/WiFi so we can give the kids shows from Netflix. Data is stupidly expensive here so small financial gifts on Venmo are huge. You can find me as @Whitney-Runyon, and while I’m being honest even playgrounds here aren’t free here...continued in comments ⬇️

Last week when we were on vacation with my parents, siblings, and all of our crazy kids, my mom and dad hosted a family night with some fun games. They did a great job picking ones that got all twelve kids involved (ages 2-11). This @postit note game was pretty funny! The kids were put into pairs and one kid stuck as many post-it notes on their partner as they could until their stack was gone. 😂 Annabelle (2) and Andrew (10) worked together and Banana took them off as fast as Andrew put them on 🤣... and then they switched. .

So hysterical! They also did a marshmallow ice cream cone drop game and moving M&Ms with straws (my favorite 😋). Do you have any games you’ve done with multiple ages that have worked well?? Does your family ever do games when you get together?

If there was an Asian female character, it was always an exoticized love interest to a white actor. If there was an Asian male actor, he was always a martial artist or an undesirable nerd who was often the punchline. Even people like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan became an all-too-familiar taunt as people (even to this day) call me either actor as they pull back their eyes.
Imagine going 30 plus years of your life and never seeing someone that you can relate to in a movie or on the cover of a magazine. Every character that does looks like you has an accent that people are laughing at while sitting beside you at the theatre. Imagine growing up embarrassed that your mom carefully packed you Korean food that she stayed up at night making after laboring all day at a donut shop. Then having to ask her to pack you hotdogs instead, as kids were making fun of your food. Or watching people treat your parents like second class citizens or idiots because their English isn’t perfect at their own place of business, or even when going to a restaurant where they’re paying customers.

I went to watch Crazy Rich Asians this weekend. As you all know by now, this is the first full Asian cast movie in the US since one other film 25 years ago. I wondered if I’d be able to relate to a film about crazy rich Asians from Singapore. It was so much more. It made me feel human and as an equal. The movie was funny without us being the joke for once. It showed us as multi-dimensional beautiful people.
I often think if there was better representation in mass media, it would’ve done wonders for me. Perhaps it would’ve changed the way people saw and treated me or even the way I saw and treated myself.

Thank you @kevinkwanbooks @jonmchu and the entire cast of @crazyrichasians. Thank you for showing the world that we’re multifaceted people. I hope this will be the beginning of representation that ensures the younger generation of Asian Americans feel like they deserve to be here as much as anyone else and can dare to imagine possibilities beyond the stereotypes that have bound us for years.

Well it’s been 10 days since my last post. And without warning, I disappeared...... If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that I’m very open and public about the challenges I experience through my life as a mother to 3 kids, a firefighters wife, and an all round superwoman.

Well, I AM superwoman. ✅
But even superwoman has a limit for when enough is enough.

Never before have we done it.

But we left the kids, split up between my inlaws, and my parents, and we escaped for a few days to somewhere hot and sunny.

We missed the kids, totally! And kept in touch several times a day via video calls and messages.
But having a little bit of freedom to be ME again with my husband was exactly what we needed.

I’d love to hear about your experiences - how do you press the “reset” button to keep yourself feeling on top.

And those who maybe are struggling with finding balance (which is the mistake I’d made over the last few months) what areas of your life could you let go of to reduce your stress?

Of course alcohol was not used to bring joy, but it did make for a funny photo here.

Mostly I drank sparkling water but just had the occasional beer or piña colada.

Would love to hear from you. 😊 #mum #mom #mummy #mommy #kids #motherhood #parents #escape #lanzarote #lanzaroteparadise #costateguise

When I was little, I played in a ⚽️soccer league that was strict about us kids only having water at our games. I hated water ever since I was a baby and refused to drink it. (I don’t know why I’m like this 🙈😩🤦🏼‍♀️). My mom got me a water bottle with one of those coozie things attached to the outside and filled it with orange juice and ice cubes and would hold onto the clear straw when I took a “water” break so no one would see the orange liquid and I don’t know whats more real than that. S/O to my mom for always supporting me (even tho I was/am a lil weirdo🙈), always being my biggest fan (whether its shouting from the sidelines while she’s running up & down them with me, or sliding into my DMs to tell me to be careful 🙈), and for being the reason I know how to get through life fearlessly (even tho I think she regrets that one sometimes 😂). I’m a handful because she taught me not to take any shit from anyone, to always follow my heart, and to exist on my own terms and I wouldn’t have it any other way🤷🏼‍♀️. Most of all, while I feel like sometimes parents think its their job to keep their kids grounded, she just let me fly 🦅🦋 Today and everyday, I appreciate you the most, mom ❤️❤️🙏🏽👯

You are such a beautiful soul and we are honored to know and love you! #loveloud ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜. PS. There is a beautiful video that I’m trying to find a way to share featuring Ash and their family sharing their story. It was shown at the Love Loud Festival right before Ash sang and it brings me to tears just thinking about it. The love I have for their whole family, especially their parents is deep and far reaching. Ash’s Dad was a dear friend of mine back in high school and also was (I married his older brother and had my 3 oldest kids with him) my brother in-law, Ash’s mom is an old high school friend as well. Are you following still? 😉 When Ash was born the resemblance to my Aden was uncanny. Their Mom and I always thought it was funny how two brothers both married half-Japanese girls. And still to this day Ash and Aden look like siblings even though they’re cousins.. and what’s even more uncanny is how since Liam looks so similar to Aden, I can see a resemblance between Liam & Ash too! ☺️ Anyhow, after this long ramble what I’m trying to say is that Ash couldn’t have a better family & parents whose love is beyond unconditional.

For the laugh-until-you-cry Mom: AMATEUR HOUR: MOTHERHOOD IN ESSAYS AND SWEAR WORDS by @therealkimberlyharrington
Welcome to essayist Kimberly Harrington’s poetic and funny world of motherhood, womanhood, and humanhood, not necessarily in that order. With accessibility and wit, she captures the emotions around parenthood in artful and earnest ways, highlighting this time in the middle—midlife, the middle years of childhood, how women are stuck in the middle of so much. It’s a place of elation, exhaustion, and time whipping past at warp speed. Finally, it’s a quiet space to consider the girl you were, the mother you are, and the woman you are always becoming.

For the historical-fiction-loving Mom: THE HOME FOR UNWANTED GIRLS by @jogoodmanauthor
Inspired by true events, The Home for Unwanted Girls is the heart-wrenching, gripping story of a mother-daughter bond that could not be broken. Set in 1950s Quebec, this suspenseful, provocative novel filled with love, secrets, and deceit is the story of a young unwed mother who is forcibly separated from her daughter at birth and the lengths to which they go to find each other.
💐
For the let’s-make-edible-play-doh! Mom: VENTURE GIRLS: RAISING GIRLS TO BE TOMORROW’S LEADERS by @luzcristal
From engineer and entrepreneur, Cristal Glangchai, PhD comes a conversation-changing parenting book about how to engage young women in science, technology, engineering, and math, filled with practical advice for both parents and educators. VentureGirls includes a plethora of activities and lessons that focus on strengthening kids’ ingenuity and resilience and is essential reading for anyone who wants to raise girls and young women who realize their strength, engage in the world, and feel empowered to make a positive impact.
