iheartrileybean Finished the #scienceproject this AM. Check. Skate sesh with the kiddo before school. Check. Volunteered on the field trip to the sf ballet. Check. Returned to work in time to attend the Latino Partnership meeting. Check. Attended open house and #sciencefair. Check and check. And now, I'm in bed. BEFORE 9! Oh, and in case you didn't know, you can make a #nakedegg by putting it in vinegar for 24 hours. The shell rubs off and leaves a squishy water balloon like egg! #rileybeanrocks 4d

iheartrileybean Last weekend I brought Riley to a community event I had to work. He knew no one. Until he met a little boy the same age as he. They played the whole day. The boy had his own cellphone. Weird, I thought. He's only 8. To stay in touch, Ry gave him our number. I screened his calls all week. I allowed Riley to only talk 3 out of the 50+ times. No lengthy calls. No texting. Go out and play, I encourage him. After many more missed calls yesterday, I woke up to this. My first thought, you don't want to know. Let's just say I will go all kinds of crazy on you if you threaten my child. And that's not a threat. It's a promise.

I know a first name. I know his age and grade. I know his school and Monday morning I'm going to pay a visit. I'm going to inform his teacher, his school social worker, and his family should his school provide me with that information. Something really fucked up must be happening in this kids life to think this behaviour is okay. IT'S NOT. And if that means investing what little time I already have to educate and stop a bully from growing up, I'm doing it. Not only for Riley, but for this young troubled soul. For all our kids. #ittakesavillage

  •   reina_cruz415 Girl I know. This world is fucked up. Moms and dads don't watch their kids cuz their more concerned about songs they're trying to live up to and shoes. So sad man.

iheartrileybean Online shopping from bed is supposed to be relaxing, not stressful! Why oh why must the bathing suit I want be so damn expensive?! AND it's from Target of all places. I mean, c'mon. I live in SF. I'm only going to be wearing the damn thing a handful of times. Ugh. #bathingsuitshopping #thestruggleisreal 3w

iheartrileybean SF's neighborhoods are far from perfect; from Pac Heights to the Tenderloin, they each have their flaws. Today, the #bayview came together as a community. We ate grandmama's soulfood, danced, played carnival games, and supported local vendors all the while raising money for the Bayview seniors. SF, you ceased to amaze me today. #blackcuisine2015 3w

iheartrileybean This is rare. All of us. At home. Eating dinner at the table. Between Riley's dinner dates with his pops 2-3x's a week, hip-hop dance on Tuesdays, steel pan drumming on Thursdays, and Cubscouts on some Fridays, we are never all home at the same time. Tonight was a fluke. A happy fluke, albeit. #nightslikethis 2mon
