She wanted a bun for school picture day. 💗 As I positioned and pinned her cornrows, I thought, how is she this old? When did my baby become a tween? Have I mothered her well so far? Am I being the mommy she needs? Have I given her the tools and influences she needs to become a strong Black woman? 💗 Do you have moments like this? 💗💗💗

My little companion has been on a two day school trip with her new high school buddies. I slipped a wee note inside her suitcase, to read each night before bed.
Last night, I slid my hand beneath my pillow wishing so hard to find a little note from her. I knew she hadn’t, but my fingers felt anyway, for the sharp edges of a card. A little something to bring her closer: a little missive telling me she was nervous but brave, tired but happy; a little squiggle of words that reached out across the night sky, from her hand to mine. A little touch from my girl.
Motherhood is easy and hard all at the same time. You let them go but you want them to stay. But they need to go so you raise them to want to. What a complicated piece of life this parenting malarkey.
Just hurry home now, girl. Your mom needs a hug.
