mamawatters i am sad. i am outraged. i am heartbroken. i am also a woman who directly benefits from white privilege and the countless ways our current broken systems continuously oppress and murder black men and women. i will be the first to admit these conversations make me uncomfortable and overwhelmed, and that’s the point. enough of white women being comfortable and underwhelmed at the expense of other people’s precious lives. our brothers and sisters are dying. we need policy change and we need action both within our homes and at the polls. we need to listen to and amplify black voices and we need to offer compassion to their deep pain and suffering. we need to ask hard questions that confront our insecurities and we need to speak up in spaces where our voices can be heard, not holding space on black platforms, but on platforms of our own and in within our families and in our communities. we need to examine our thought systems and do anti-racist work that goes beyond reading books (which we should all be doing) and into putting those words into meaningful action where we are with what we have. we need not stay silent. no more. not now. i say we, but it starts with me as i need to be practicing what i preach: a privileged white woman, mother of four privileged white children, who wants to do more and do better. 🖤#blacklivesmatter
mamawatters stella has been dreaming up her birthday cake for months, as birthday people tend to do, and after combing through my cookbooks she landed on a lemon curd cake with sweet lavender frosting, topped with edible pansies from the garden and rainbow sprinkles. perfect for a spring birthday, perfect for our nine year old. 🍋🧁🌼🌈💜
mamawatters whenever girlfriend starts to get fussy we’ll bring her our here on our rickety porch to listen to the church bells and the chirping birds and it immediately calms her. i get the feeling that her soul is an old, wise one, and that heaven sent her here to teach/remind us of many important lessons, like the simple truth that nature heals. you can just feel it being around her; she’s been here before and knows a thing or two. such a gentle light, this chickadee. 🐥
mamawatters can you please pray for our baby girl? can you pray for me? for us? i took matilda into the doctors this afternoon because her coloring looked different to me and she was congested, making it hard to nurse. my intuition was telling me go, even though no fever etc. when we got there things went from bad to worse fast, her tiny body needing mouth to mouth, paramedics being called, oxygen, an ambulance ride to children’s mercy er, then tests upon tests. she’s doing okay now on oxygen but tested positive for RSV and is back in the NICU. because she’s a preemie it can be extra hard on her developing lungs. i was prepared to spend the night but unfortunately due to covid-19 protocol i am not able to even see her until her tests come back, which we don’t know when because of everything going on. this feels like a nightmare. we just got home without her, my milk is pouring out of me as i write this, and my heart feels like a cinder block being drug about the floor. we haven’t been separated since she began to grow inside me. while the doctors and nurses are amazing, this sucks. i feel like i left half of myself behind. i know she’ll recover and i know in a few days i’ll be able to see her, nurse her, and kiss her, but right now i’m in pain and cannot stop crying. please pray for our baby girl. mommy loves you, matilda rosemary. xoxo 💛
mamawatters happy birthday little bird. just a few hours new, our tiny baby girl, head full of blonde hair (!!!) with one feisty spirit. both she and i are doing well in the nicu after a very long labor. crossing fingers we get to snuggle soon because we just found out she gets to be extubated! so grateful and sleepy and in love and overwhelmed. 🌙🐣👶🏻🌼💛
mamawatters nothing but wide smiles behind this mask. today i got to see and hold you again, little bird. i got to feel your fuzzy back and arms, sing you songs like we did when we were home, and rest with you laying on my chest. breathing can be hard sometimes, so together we breathed, in and out. together. my new favorite word. 🕊🙏🏼 and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your prayers. we love you. xx
