  • I have made all of the baby's food so far but now that she is ready for finger foods I struggled. I searched online for a recipe that was baby friendly for puffs or other finger foods but most included some sort of processed baby cereal which we are avoiding for her (baby's don't need it, it's only purpose is to fill them). I finally decided to look at the ones sold in store and found this one. She likes them and I love the ingredients! 3 ingredients that I not only can say but are also real food! If you're looking for finger foods for a baby I definitely recommend these! 🌱

The last two slides are the EWG ranking from their Healthy Living app. Not perfect but the positives are enough for me.

  • Echt?! Daran musste ich mich erst mal gewöhnen... ist das Thema des dritten Tages von der @lottalove_usa  #thegermanauswanderer challenge. 
Einerseits hab ich ein bisschen den Vorteil, dass meine Mama Amerikanerin ist und ich dadurch auch in Deutschland mit viel amerikanischer Mentalität und Kultur in Kontakt kam. Andererseits gibt es trotzdem so einiges, was auch für mich schwer zu begreifen ist. 
Vieles wurde schon von anderen genannt: dass sich viele hier keine Gedanken um Mülltrennung oder Müllvermeidung machen. So. Viel. Plastik. Super teure Lebensmittel. Lebensmittelverschwendung ist hier normal. Der Verkehr... und dass alle so fahren als hätten sie den Führerschein im Lotto gewonnen. 😂 
Aber ganz ehrlich, eine große Sache an die ich mich hier einfach nicht gewöhnen kann: dass in den USA angenommen wird, dass Urlaub und Freizeit ein Luxus sind, und dass bis zum Burnout geschuftet werden muss. Wenn man Glück hat kriegt man 12 Urlaubstage im Jahr. Mich macht es traurig, zu sehen wie sich eine Gesellschaft in den Boden schuftet und nicht erkennt, wie wichtig Zeit zum Energie tanken ist. Das man bessere Arbeit leistet, wenn man nicht gestresst ist. 
Jedes Jahr muss ich überlegen, ob ich meine Urlaubstage in Deutschland verbringen möchte, oder vielleicht doch was neues entdecken will. Oft werden es dann halt kurze Wochenendtripps, welche auch Spaß machen, aber dann irgendwie einfach zu kurz sind. 
Und bald möchten wir eine Familie gründen. Sowas wie Mutterschutz oder bezahlte Elternzeit gibt es hier nicht wirklich. Es wird gearbeitet, bis die Fruchtblase platzt, und nach 6 Wochen sind die meisten Frauen dann auch schon wieder im Job. Das macht mir jetzt schon richtig Sorgen, wie ich das hinkriegen soll. 
Haben da einige von euch Erfahrung damit? Wie habt ihrs mit dem „maternity leave“ geregelt?

  • THIS. YES yes, @stellacreasy. We’re over being polite about it too. If you didn’t yet read British Member of Parliament and pregnant person Stella Creasy’s @guardian op-Ed today, do it. In our stories. Tx brilliant @darcelmuchamp for sharing with us // “Achieving a world in which women are not discriminated against because they can carry children means challenging all of these attitudes – and the policies that go with them. From the parliamentary authorities to our healthcare services and workplaces, it’s time to stop asking nicely for the discrimination to be dealt with. It is time to refuse to wait patiently and instead to make it a a priority.” #stellacreasy #stopaskingnicely #pregnancydiscrimination #paidmaternityleave #paidleaveforall #paidfamilyleave

  • He’s talking recognition AND income reward for Mothers + Caregivers!! Even though I pay taxes in America, I’m not allowed to vote, nor would I qualify for the freedom dividend ~ but this is the first guy I’ve heard talk like this & he would get my vote if I could. 
Have a listen 👂🏻 @andrewyang2020 ~ I’m down with your message!! ・・・
The biggest misconception about the #FreedomDividend is that it will reduce work. The influx of cash will stimulate local businesses, creating thousands of jobs in our communities.  It will also recognize work that is currently valued at zero - like parenting and caregiving.

  • This sweet girl has had a rough few days, super uncomfortable and crabby. I'm thinking she may be teething but the other two were so much older that I'd be surprised if it was her teeth. Needless to say she is getting all the cuddles. ❤️

  • The self-care movement has missed the mark in my opinion. Instead of demanding society to change how we treat mothers, it places even more demands on women. Telling us it's easy, just find even 5 minutes, you owe it to yourself. By suggesting mothers only truly love or honor themselves if they find time to practice self-care is bullcrap!

Do you know who owes us that? Our partners, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, our communities. It is not the mothers' responsibility to fix a broken system. Mother's are exhausted and it's not because we don't practice enough self-care. It's the non-paid maternity leave, it's 25% of women returning to work 2 weeks postpartum, it's indifferent spouses, it's postpartum mental health struggles, it's financial disparity, it's racial inequity, it is not that we don't love ourselves enough!

As mothers we already owe so much, but who owes us? If you are having a hard time finding time, space, money, or the mental capacity to practice self-care know it is not your fault. The lack of self-care is not a reflection of self-love or worth. Rather, it is a reflection of the lack of support mothers have. I see you. I validate you.

  • This week is harder than most. Next week I start back to work--4 weeks after having Wyatt. 4 weeks after having an unplanned cesarean birth. 4 weeks, not even a full 4 weeks home from the hospital. 4 weeks of my own earned entitlement time from work, such as vacation & sick time. It devastates me, pulls me in every direction of sadness & has caused me so much anxiety & grief that I've caught myself grieving over it more than cherishing what time I have left with him at home. People have asked how long I have off and are flabbergasted when I tell them--but the reality of it is that I can't go the recommended 12 weeks with non-paid maternity leave, despite having FMLA. It isn't easy, & although it works out for other mommas(& I am so happy it has for them💕) it just doesn't work for our little family. I wish that the standards in the USA were different. I wish mothers everywhere had a set time off with their babies, a timeframe that allowed them not only to bond with their bundle & to fully recover from birth, but to also have the ability to do so while being financially reassured through their employers. All there is to do is to treasure the time I have left with him, snuggle him & hold him, all while taking into consideration that he'll be with his grandma during the days. Evenings, holidays & weekends--those are going to be hold all the adventures😍
Here's to future changes in the world for all current & future mommas🙌

  • See my @linktr.ee page (link in bio) for the Joint Statement on the #abortionban laws from:
The American Academy of Family Physicians @the_aafp 
The American Academy of Pediatrics @aap_pediatrics 
The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology @acog_org 
The American College of Physicians @acpinternists 
The American Osteopathic Association @aoafordos 
and The American Psychiatric Association @apapsychiatric 
These are the frontline physicians that treat the women, children, partners, friends, and family members connected to a pregnancy termination or lack thereof. You know these people. They’re your children, partners, friends, and family members.

As a physician, I read “necessary” as “life saving”, lest we forget that pregnancy terminations are sometimes critical in saving someone’s life. Do you really want your physician choosing between saving yours and going to jail? Do you yourself want to be criminally prosecuted for a miscarriage after 6 weeks you can’t prove you didn’t cause?

Where are the laws funding full spectrum women’s healthcare, pediatric care, primary care, mental health care? The laws funding universal childcare, foster care, adoption, postpartum support, paid parental leave? These are just a few things to consider about the downstream effects of abortion bans. Just a few.

  • Today we visited the Department of Labor. The department honored Frances Perkins, powerfully the first woman Secretary of Labor. I can’t quite describe the twinge I felt when I saw a woman’s name engraved into the wall. 
Perkins was the first woman appointed to a US cabinet EVER, was appointed by FDR, she shaped the vital labor piece and other parts of the New Deal. She participated in the suffragist movement. She helped pass the National Labor Relations Act. She helped draft the Social Security Act. 
____

Our first stop was with Michel Blythe, Office of the Chief Information Officer. He showed us where the Secretary and Deputy Secretary hold importance conferences.
I asked him what most influenced his view on Labor and the U.S. he said the domestic workers (housekeepers + similar domestic laborers) that worked for his family. He said that with his family’s guidance, one of them was able to go to a University, finish, and become the first black city councilwoman in her city.
“Domestic workers are the most vulnerable workers in the nation”, he said. I know, because I am the daughter of one.  And niece. I was sad he is retiring, but I hope the next person in his role pursues labor justice as much as he.
“The arc of the moral universe is long”, he said. “But it bends towards justice.”

  • ✊🏾One of the reasons I was excited to join @onceuponafarm as a brand ambassador is because their values matched mine. I recently shared my reasoning behind changing careers and starting my own business and being a mom had a lot to do with it. Recently, Once Upon a Farm shared an article about paid maternity leave. 1 in 4 women go back to work less than 2 weeks after giving birth because the vast majority of Americans (86%) have no paid leave. So many families struggle with having to go back to work before they’re ready or even healed completely! Once Upon a Farm is matching any donations to @paidleaveus up to $10k until tomorrow. Paid Leave US is advocating for national paid leave and wants high quality paid leave for everybody. Head over to their website to learn more!

  • SHOUT OUT to all the pregnant women out there still heading out to work every morning 👏🏿 👏🏿. We hail you...because it is definitely NOT easy 😓. To top it all off, THERE is no US law that guarantees women Paid maternity leave. Isn’t that ridiculous?!?! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We had this conversation on my stories earlier this week but I’m curious, please  comment below how much maternity leave your job provides? I consider myself lucky that both me and my husband’s employers give  8weeks of paid maternity/paternity leave(as of last year) and several companies are stepping up in this space to grant parents/babies this basic decency! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My plan is to work up till a week before my delivery date😓 but soooo many women literally have to work up till their due day in order to maximize whatever short term disability or maternity leave they get after the baby is born. So if you live in a country where maternity leave is 6 months or more, YOU ARE BLESSED lol! #maternity #maternityleave #workingmoms #maternyleavelaw #paidmaternityleave #pregnantwomen  #pregnancyglow #houstonblogger #pregnancyannouncement

  • Do you feel that society understands motherhood?  It is interesting to learn that many working mom's feel that their employers understand breastfeeding but don't realize what else it means to be a mom. "Flexible schedules and remote work opportunities are the second biggest request from moms" (Marcoux, @mother.ly ). The first is longer paid maternity leave. (Link in Bio).

The biggest misconception about the #FreedomDividend is that it will reduce work. The influx of cash will stimulate local businesses, creating thousands of jobs in our communities.  It will also recognize work that is currently valued at zero - like parenting and caregiving.

  • Saw this on a friend’s Facebook post... maternity leave doesn’t apply to me since I’m the owner if my own small business, but if I were working a corporate job, I’d be in a bit of a panic.
.
As a former teacher, I knew almost all my friends that had kids planned them to maximize their schedules... they’d have the baby at the end of the year to capitalize on summer break, take short-term (unpaid, i believe) disability (in the US) to get a few weeks off, and then use up their sick/personal days to extend time with the baby.
.
I know a lot of companies in the US do you give maternity leave, and my husband’s former employer would give two weeks paternity leave, but this is definitely not the case for a lot of companies…
.
What’s your company’s policy on maternity/paternity leave in the US? Is it paid, or do they just have to hold your job for you, and no/reduced pay? .

My teaching load was light last fall, but my days were filled with the madness of keeping this tiny human alive! 👶🏻♥️ I’m back to work full time and learning the juggling act of being a full time working mom, but I am so grateful to work for a wonderful institution that has supported my pregnancy from day 1 with love and excitement, and the paid maternity leave was pretty awesome too 😉 I am an infinitely better educator having had the extended time to bond with my young baby without the added stress of financial worries. Now I just have to figure out how to make this kid stop growing so he can stay my little baby forever!!

  • SHOUT OUT to all the pregnant women out there still heading out to work every morning 👏🏿 👏🏿. We hail you...because it is definitely NOT easy 😓. To top it all off, THERE is no US law that guarantees women Paid maternity leave. Isn’t that ridiculous?!?! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We had this conversation on my stories earlier this week but I’m curious, please  comment below how much maternity leave your job provides? I consider myself lucky that both me and my husband’s employers give  8weeks of paid maternity/paternity leave(as of last year) and several companies are stepping up in this space to grant parents/babies this basic decency! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My plan is to work up till a week before my delivery date😓 but soooo many women literally have to work up till their due day in order to maximize whatever short term disability or maternity leave they get after the baby is born. So if you live in a country where maternity leave is 6 months or more, YOU ARE BLESSED lol! #maternity #maternityleave #workingmoms #maternyleavelaw #paidmaternityleave #pregnantwomen  #pregnancyglow #houstonblogger #pregnancyannouncement

I'm not ready to go back to work yet but only have a few days left of my leave so I'm trying to soak in all the baby snuggles. Emilia will be so excited excited to be with her during the day. 👶👧

  • In honor of International Women’s Day, call your representatives and let them know you want PAID maternity leave, because women should not have to choose between leaving an infant at home or having to return to work in order to make ends meet. The Capitol switchboard number is 202-224-3121. #paidmaternityleave #internationalwomensday
