I didn't march yesterday because I met @bitchwithabook from 7-8:15 a.m. to write (Mary, you are so awesome -- thanks for meeting me so early), then taught from 9-11:45 a.m. @stlccedu and afterwards rushed home to breastfeed @lucinda_belle_t , who has six teeth now, waves bye-bye, and has actively started saying Dada to @the_real_big_b . But to all who did participate in @womensmarch , thank you from the bottom of my heart. Next year is our year -- Luci and Daddy and Momma will be out there.
Raising a daughter makes me keenly aware of all the BS I have sometimes put up with in my life -- and Brandon and I want Luci to not only know her worth but to ensure she supports and protects the worth and freedoms and love of all. This little cookie, as her Auntie @nicolechunt calls her, is going to be loved for who she is and wants and cultivates in her life, not what she looks like or offers up to anyone; she will be believed and listened to; she will be protected and nurtured by other badass women and men; she will be taught that #loveislove#blacklivesmatter and #immigrantswelcome ; and what I fervently hope we teach her in actions and words is that she is loved so much and in return I hope she sows and shares that love and light with others. #sorryimissedit#daughtersrock#letterstomydaughter#weloveyousomuch#bethechange#bethelight#9monthsold#ivfsuccess#whenicountmyblessingsicountyoutwice
