It’s Saturday!!! Hallelujah! AND I can’t believe it is already August. Wild. I am going to do my very best to chill hard this weekend. We will see how it goes!! If you plan on spending a lot of time on the couch (like I do) and want to do some online shopping, here are links to everything I wore, used and loved this week!
Our country is in turmoil right now. One of the most important things…if not THE most important thing we can do long term is to educate ourselves and our children about racism. The looming question I know other white parents are facing is “is my child too young to start talking to them about race issues?” The short answer is NO. Timmy and I started by buying lots of books for Sonny that support conversations on race, racism and resistance. You can see the first batch we got in my BLACK LIVES MATTER highlight on Instagram.
During this week’s episode of WITH WHIT, my younger sister and guest, Paige, shared all of the details of being a new mom during Covid-19. We are back with some of her must-have product recommendations: things to have in the house and nursery, diaper bag and other mom essentials!
I hope you all are continuing to stay safe and healthy. I am still taking this all one day at a time. I have found myself experiencing several good days before getting hit with a bad one that knocks me on my a**. That bad one always makes me feel deflated and anxious.
This week, my younger sister, Paige, joined me on my podcast, WITH WHIT! She is a brand new mom and shared her experience of life in quarantine with a newborn. Moms or soon to be moms…I highly recommend you listen! She gives some amazing insight that I hope will help you with any anxiety you might be having.
This week on WITH WHIT, I have a very, very special guest…my younger sister, Paige! Her life does not look how she envisioned it. Four weeks before the stay at home order was put in place in California, she gave birth to her son, Wolf. My heart is with all of the brand new moms and women who are pregnant out there!
Like everyone else, our daily routine and schedule has drastically changed. We had Sonny on a very strict schedule which included a very precise nap and bedtime. It wasn’t difficult to get him to fall asleep, because he was always tired after school. Even though his regular routine has changed and is different every day, we are still striving to keep nap time and bed time consistent…for him and for us.
Here is “What I Wore, Used and <3’ed This Week: Staying at Home.” This week has been part of a major transition period. I want to continue to share what I am using and loving throughout the week with you, but I also know some may not be in a spending mood. All good. I’m not really either but maybe these picks can help bring you guys a little browsing entertainment, inspiration or joy.
It is an incredibly stressful time. Not only are we adjusting to constant life at home, but we are also trying to homeschool our kids. Timmy and I were so nervous about it in the beginning. Our biggest goal right now (apart from staying home and safe) is continuing to advance Sonny’s development and teaching him as best we can. I hope what you are about to read gives you a lot of relief and encouragement for homeschooling!
Like most schools, Sonny’s has been canceled until likely after his spring break which is Mid April. It is important to us that we continue to encourage and support his development so we got him some enriching Montessori style toys.
