Hey everyone! How are things? …it’s been a lot, right? I’ve been mostly focused on being a mom and a graduate student right now. And trust me, that is plenty. Overflow. When I first found out that my graduate program was transitioning to online learning, I really thought I was gonna show up to classes (on Zoom) in my “house clothes.” Nah playa. The devil is a lie. See I like to dress. I like to style clothes. AKA my closet is my playground.
So as long as I’m home based, I’m gonna get up and get dressed for the day and so will my kids. We gon be comfy but cute. Pajamas all day was fun for a little while but nah. We off that.
Then we can feel good and look good when we go on walks around the neighborhood. How are you and your family settling in at home?
My Spring Break was earlier this month before social distancing was our reality. I wanted to do something special with my babies so we took a road trip to Chatanooga, Tennessee. And I did it solo dolo. That’s right folks. Just me and the two toddlers, and the trip went really well. I was proud of us.
We went to the Creative Discovery Museum on Saturday and then to the Missionary Ridge Local for a 3-mile round trip train ride on Sunday morning. I don’t know what it is about trains, but kids dig ’em. It was a cool outing for us. And it was my first real train ride too.
I’m a child of the 90’s. Whenever I see colorful things, my brain jumps to the Popsicle commercial where the kid says “The colors Duke, the colors” to his colorblind dog. That’s the end of my story.
Enjoy these magical ass photos of me and my kids embodying joy. We discovered a trampoline park South of Atlanta and it has hella activities plus great lighting in the evening. Here we are in the ball pit. Had to jump in because the kids immediately started sinking and I wasn’t having that. It was fun.
Peace to you! Man, what’s good people. I took a break from blogging this summer. That Mercury Retrograde just took me clean out. Can anyone relate?
My birthday was July 12. I celebrated with a honey body massage & foot rub (fire), then went to this slightly side-eye worthy day party in Atlanta with my girls. It was enjoyable tho. Another year here on Earth…all gratitude.
So I took my babies to St. Louis for a much needed change of scenery. I was finally able to meet my nephew Lincoln. (A cutie)
Of course I had to take Langston & Josephine to the Saint Louis Zoo…one of the best in the country and free. We also visited the Magic House. They loved it all.
What do you like to do in St Louis with young children?
