I’ve gotten a slew of questions lately about sun protection and how do I monitor how much sun my kids are getting. We need the sunshine people!! Like literally need it to live. Just like all of the living things on this planet.
remember when my friend Kristin sent me these pictures. She had come over when I was just a few days postpartum to capture the magic and she had been at the birth as well. When I saw this picture, I felt so much body shame I decided I would never share it. In that time I couldn’t see this strong powerful body that had just grown a healthy 9 lb baby boy and birthed at home, surrounded by an incredible birth team.
Why is there so much shame around the mother’s body? Or any body for that matter? Why is there an entire industry around “getting your back body before baby?”
I’m guilty of this just as much as the next person. More than once, people have said nearby me after I’ve just birthed babies in days past or weeks past, “I wonder when the body goes back to normal” like I’m not right there and can hear exactly what’s being said.
The number one question I get constantly is some variation of where do I look for homeschooling resources? I have no idea where to start, can you tell me all of your favorite links and resources? Or I’m so scared to homeschool my child because I don’t know how they’ll turn out. Or how do you start? I’m going against my entire family by deciding to keep my child out of school and I need your help.
