girlsgonechild My flight from PHX landed an hour before I was expected at the theatre last night, so I had 15 minutes at home to get ready. Thankfully, Revi was quick on the scene with a hair brush and Bo with the dental floss. 🏻🏻 3d

girlsgonechild Tonight I had the opportunity to be on the panel of judges for the @getlitpoet #classicslam finals. I don't know that I've ever been prouder to be an Angeleno and a parent and human on this day, in this city, at this time. There are so many brilliant young voices, fearless and willing to sing their truth and applaud each other's bravery with love and empathy, respect and unflinching honesty. I salute them tonight and always and am grateful for the educators that provide microphones, education and EARS to their students. I only wish every human being that has ever had doubts about the future could have been in the audience tonight. It was astounding. Congratulations to the participating students of Academic Leadership Community, Alhambra High, Alliance Burton Tech, Alliance Health Services Academy, Animo Inglewood Charter, ArtES high, Augustus F Hawkins, CALS, Camino Nuevo School (Miramar and Dalzell Lance) CHAMPS charter, Cleveland High, Daniel Pearl Magnet, Duarte High, East LA Performing Arts Academy, eCALS, El Camino Real Charter, El Rancho, Foshay learning center, Hamilton High, Harvard Westlake, John R Wooden High, Lakeview Charter, Larchmont Charter, LA Center for Enriched Studies, LA School of Global Studies, Morningside High, Paramount Academy, Polytechnic School, San Gabriel High, Social Justice Humanitas Academy, Sylmar High, Triumph Charter, Valley International Prep, Westchester Secondary, William Workman, and Youth Opportunities High for bringing their truth. I am utterly in awe. 4d
  •   girlsgonechild PS. @sierrademulder, you KILLED tonight. I wish you would host everything always. You're incredible. 4d
  •   sierrademulder @girlsgonechild thank you so much!!! 4d
  •   quixotical9 @sierrademulder is ALWAYS killin' it. 3d
  •   earichards80 Thank you so much for sharing this amazing organization with us! I work with college students who are passionate about civic engagement and service and we've been watching and listening to some of the poems and writing our own. I often feel the same way about them- they are so young and so filled with desire to make the world a better place. It makes me crazy when people say their generation is entitled and lazy and only interested in themselves. I see the opposite every single day. 3d

girlsgonechild "Defensiveness steals your energy and demands that you explain yourself to people who will deliberately and maliciously misinterpret you. It's a waste of time, like screaming into a vacuum." - @dooce, on hateful comments, empathy, and keeping on... Bravo, lady. We love you. #mom2summit 6d

  •   abus5 The "aggressor" is not calling time out, the people who live here are. I live in Baltimore and want my neighborhood lifted up, not burned down. Rioting small businesses that do nothing but provide jobs and amenities is not how you keep the respect of anyone. 1w

girlsgonechild "My children have given me new mirrors to stand in front of every day... And yet. There's still that nagging voice -- the one that reeks of criticism and shame... the voice that appeared somewhere around my 13th birthday and has loitered within me for the last two decades..." New post on GGC/mom.me (PS. I'm starting a #postpARTums hashtag. Because one cannot spell postpartum without "art" and "tum" and it is impossible to feel shame for a belly covered in kids' artwork.) 1w
  •   bmoneymajor @miascamp she's so cool 1w
  •   ashbyandabram Do you have time (or have you already done this) to talk about Instagram accounts you follow? I recently started following @skateistan because of you... And now @takebackpostpartum because of a comment (thanks @lightsetmefree !) I know there are other great accounts out there, and don't know where to start! 1w
  •   bigmel1980 Love this. Have been reading your blog for years, since before Fable was born. My belly is stretched and marked and hangs even though I have a small frame, and it is a daily battle to feel okay about it. My 8 year old is my world, and worth every mark, but I still struggle. Thanks for this, and the many posts I've read and said, "Oh my gosh yes." 1w
  •   girlsgonechild You guys are AWESOME. Thank you for the kind words and the love and for sharing @takebackpostpartum which I am now following because YES YES YES! Keep on! Much love! Solidarity! 1w
  •   kristendmccann It is so important for the images we eat up every day to be real and normal. We are bombarded by the "other" images constantly. It is easy to forget or be distracted from true beauty. Thanks for showing your true beauty. 1w
  •   themapmakerscolors @sumerton this made me think of you & your rad belly kid tattoos 1w
  •   steadyhappy @girlsgonechild you have to meet @january_harshe she's the amazing mama behind @takebackpostpartum I want to connect you two loves! 5d
