I threw away the instruction manual. Ask me how that's working out.

This is my truth, and the truth of so many parents of children of color, not all of whom are people of color themselves.  Please read with an open mind and an open heart. http://www.bonbonbreak.com/walk-shoes-white-mom/

We always talk about how our kids are angels at school, in public or at other people's homes.  But how about us?  Don't we adults save our meltdowns, tantrums and assholish behavior for at home with the ones we love too? #parenting #self-criticism

I'm a little ashamed of this, but I'm one of those women who needs to give a heavy dose of reality to first time moms.  I don't know why I've made it my mission to make sure no pregnant woman things motherhood is a walk in the park, a sunny Facebook post or some lovey commercial.  The highs are high, but the lows make your darkest days seem like three-hour massages. #newmom   #firsttimemom  @bonbon break http://www.bonbonbreak.com/just-you-wait-new-mom/

What does it mean to be colorblind when it comes to people? Colorblindness can never mean walking through America’s jagged racial landscape with a thick blindfold and earplugs, and meaning well. #racetogether   #diversity

Please tell me I'm not the only one who almost always comes home with some trinket, article of clothing, or treat for her kids, while she survives on bread and water and wears burlap sacks.  Moms, we need to stop buying sh*t for our kids!  We also need to pee alone.  But that's another story, I mean book, altogether.   #stillpeealone   #parenting

These days it seems that turns in second are everywhere and everything to young dancers.  Are you as sick of seeing these pirouettes as I am?   #dance   #pirouettes

When we feel empty, we're supposed to do something for ourselves. Go get a mani/pedi, buy ourselves something nice, go on a trip with our girlfriends or our partner.  But what happens when this is not an option?  What do we do then?   #selfcare   #singlemoms   #specialneedsparenting  +Bonbon Break +Jessica Watson

I am constantly bewildered by the dynamic between my son and daughter.  As an only child, I was CLUELESS about what having a brother or sister really meant.  But I sure know now.  It means Fight Club.  

Any other only children discovering this?   #siblingrivalry

Remember when you just couldn't get the step and asked a ton of questions?  So does your dance teacher.  And she only has so much patience.   https://vimeo.com/117321442 #danceteacher   #satireoftheday

What would you do if your young child stole something?  Where would your mind go? As we turn to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his legacy, I'm using my reaction to my little boy to show how much work we have left to do. #stealing    #parenting   #mlkday2015
