Trying to make my son's dreams come true. We've been constructing this boat out of household objects just like in this book #toyboat we found in a #littlelibrary by our house. Today we go down to the #berkeleymarina to test it out! Turns out the waxed thread I use to make #MomLists is perfect for boat construction! #artistresidencyinmotherhood #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #ducttape #pirateship #motherhood

We have a guest MomList today! My week has been hellish. My preschool tried to kick out my son. At this very moment I'm in a very slow-moving line at the school district to hand in 1,000 forms to begin the many months-long process of getting him "assessed" to hopefully get him services (like a 1-on-1 shadow). More to come in the next few weeks about his "special needs," etc.

With all this going on I was so grateful to Ayelet Katz @yellowkatz for submitting this list. Love her honesty and the bit about paper plates. It's all about survival that first year, right? Here's "Signs You've Just Become a Mother." Ayelet is a new mom from Portland, OR.

Here's #MomLists San Francisco 39 - "My Postpartum Body II". This is the second in this short series, so if you missed the first go back and read it! My husband read this one and was like, "That's it? That's how you're gonna end it?" Yup. I don't have all the answers. I'm deeply flawed. We all are in one way or another, right? And yet, our job as parents is to raise good, loving kids in spite of ourselves and our hang-ups. Also, my daughter got hold of this one, thus the smudges and wrinkles. I thought about rewriting it but then I shrugged, #momlife right?

Someone on FB asked me to write about how I feel about my postpartum body. And I have to say it was really challenging. My body is a vulnerable place for me. I wrote enough content to shape into 3 lists. I've edited it down to 2 and I'm still unsure if I can share the 2nd one. But here's the first. More about what having a postpartum body is like as opposed to how I feel. Here's #MomLists San Francisco 38 -- "My Postpartum Body." Happy holiday to everyone. Hope you get a little warm and cozy family/friends time. And also some pie. And also a break. Grateful for this forum and all of you who respond and share and connect.

Having kids has really challenged the ways I think about gender. I notice the rigidity of gender expectations in the world, and also my own rigidity. Here's #MomLists San Francisco 37 -- "The Absence of Pink".

Happy Friday! Just made it under the wire to get a list up this week! Thanks to those of you who've sent in guest lists! They're so great! Keep 'em coming!
People always say how important it is to have mom friends when you're a mother. It is nice, but (like everything with motherhood) it's complicated! To all my besties with kids: I miss you and your adorable babies! On the real real though, I miss ALL my friends! Here's #MomLists San Francisco 36 -- "Reasons Why You and Your Best Mom Friend Never See Each Other". (Can we call best mom friends BMFs?)

This list began forming in my head just after the alt-right rally horrors this year in Charlottesville. A lot of self-awareness is happening inside my son these days, and I'm really feeling it, and struggling with when to tell him what. Like when he tells me our skin is kind of pink...whiteness momlist coming soon!
Here's #MomLists San Francisco 35 -- "Passing Down a Legacy of Passing".

Hi guys! Announcements!!!
.
1. A favor. If you follow #momlists on Facebook will you please go to the FB MomLists page and click "Like"? Think you already did that? Double check. A lot of you who like and comment regularly haven't. It really helps with the Facebook algorithm of how visible they make my posts. Plus it'll make it more likely new posts from MomLists will appear in your feed. Thank you!

2. I'm accepting guest lists! Please feel free to submit a list. You don't have to be a mom, it just has to be about parenting or motherhood culture in some way. Guidelines below.

3. Tell your friends, mothers, ex-lovers, cousins, grown children, and colleagues about MomLists. They can follow me on Tumblr, IG, or FB. And I'm lightweight on Twitter if they're like "I only do Twitter, blah blah blah."
.
4. Das it. Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️
.
Guest List Submission Guidelines:

Lists should be between 4 and 12 items long.
Lists may require light editing for clarity. Any edits I make will get author approval before publication.
Submitting does not necessarily mean publication. Please check out the #MomLists Tumblr to see all 130+ lists so far to get a good sense of the project.
While cursing, rage, and sarcasm are fine (and a real part of motherhood!), please keep your lists hate-free.
As this is a tiny one-person passion project, there is no payment for your list. But there’s lots of gratitude and I’ll write you back personally to connect!
Please send all questions and submissions to momlists[at]gmail[dot]com.

Here's #MomLists San Francisco 34 -- "Learning Gender." All this #metoo stuff has been swirling in my head. The list of verbal and physical assaults, the workplace sexism was just too long. Sending love to all of you struggling from this #metoo stuff. It's so powerful and so hard.

I'm almost finished Week 2 of staying home with my 4-year-old son and my 10-month-old daughter. Both have chicken pox. They are fine just contagious, which eliminates zoos, parks, libraries, and grocery stores as places we can go. While sitting at home trying not to breathe the NorCal fire smoke hanging in the air, I have spent $1500 on childcare that I could not use. This #MeToo stuff is making me mad and sad and claustrophobic in my house, in my skin. I am barely hanging on but mostly I am fine. Aren't we all barely hanging on and also fine?
I shall return next week with a list. Hugs to all of you holding it down on your tiny plot of the world. Here's a photo from this last week. It makes smile. And know that mostly I am fine.

Spent the week with this guy cuz #chickenpox. Things we've been doing:
1. Oiling his scalp bc cradle cap never dies.
2.Painting his toes for the first time. "Now I'm a mommy!"
3. Letting him paint on both our feet after painting on paper got boring.

Also the baby has chicken pox. Also I think I gained 5 pounds this week. Also one day I drank a glass of wine at 2pm. In 2 days it will be Monday and they will be cared for by other adults.
