mothers of multiples

The great tradition of hitting assholes on camera continues: 

A reporter from PowNews, a Dutch (racist right-wing & populist) TV station that is known for incessantly stalking people who do not want to be interviewed, received a good smack from a mother yesterday (1 Feb 2017). The mother had repeated multiple times that she did not want to be on television and when the ‘reporter’ continued his harassment she expertly backhanded him.

(If you enjoy this video as much as I have, please share gifs like this and NOT footage showing her face.)

Recently I have come across so many people online who at some point in our conversation apologised for not being too good at English and making errors because English is not their first/native language.

Some multiple times. They were almost embarrassed by their lack of English proficiency and that really saddened me.

Made me realize that at some point they were teased for not speaking/writing well in English and that they haven’t yet realized that being bilingual is something to be proud of.

Fun fact: English is not my first/native language either.

I’ve always got several surprised reactions at that and while I get some were just mere surprise, the others were a little offensive because they kept being shocked and not suprised at the knowledge of this fact.

Being bilingual can get confusing and hard sometimes. Take Gloria Pritchett from Modern Family as an example.

If you were to learn a new language, you too would have an accent, mess up meanings and not always have words you can perfectly translate.

They put me through my paces every single day, they love to throw toys and fight and help to run my coffee supply dry. But every day is special when there’s two little duckies playing and learning in front of me every single day. I am so lucky despite everything to be able to spend all my time with my twins and have this special bond as a twin mother. Most days they drive me up the wall and let my sanity fly out the window but it always returns eventually… though I’m not sure why it knows exactly what it’s in for…

My favorite thing about Andrew Minyard is that, after finding out two of his teammates are wanted by the largest and most powerful mob in the country, his reaction is basically “Don’t worry about it, I’ll handle it.”
Like Neil’s mother used to have multiple body guards protecting them and still didn’t trust they were safe, and this below average height college sophomore is completely confident in his ability to keep them alive against the endless amount of hired killers that could be sent after them.
I just love my small son who is willing to fight Everyone

Okay, but the first HP book came out in 1997. That was almost twenty years ago. No, JKR was not fully aware of her white/straight/cis privilege at that time. She has had 20 years to get better. She also wrote the first draft on table napkins while working as a single mother of multiple children and receiving public support.

We are allowed to retrospectively critique her lack of inclusivity. We are also allowed to think that perhaps her awareness of the lack of said inclusivity has improved.

Just as a goddamn FOR EXAMPLE, in 1997, if Rowling had tried to pitch Dumbledore, a school headmaster, as openly homosexual, her book would never have been published. Want some evidence? I can do that.

Regulations were introduced for discrimination protections on sexual orientation in employment on 1 December 2003, following the adoption of an EC Directive in 2000, providing for the prohibition of discrimination in employment on the grounds of sexual orientation.

Right, so he (Dumbledore) could have been fired for being gay at any point prior to 2000, even assuming Wizarding law was keeping up with Muggle law, which is a goddamn stretch considering how shoddy trials and evidence are maintained throughout Auror procedurals.

And, regarding “she could have made more students of color in the first place,” um:

The Race Relations Act 1965 outlawed public discrimination, and established the Race Relations Board. Further Acts in 1968 and 1976 outlawed discrimination in employment, housing and social services, and replaced the Race Relations Board with Commission for Racial Equality[3] that merged into the Equality and Human Rights Commission in 2004. The Human Rights Act 1998 made organisations in Britain, including public authorities, subject to theEuropean Convention on Human Rights.[4] The Race Relations Act 2000 extends existing legislation for the public sector to the police force, and requires public authorities to promote equality.

After 2000, some argued that racism remains common, and some politicians and public figures have been accused of promoting racist attitudes in the media, particularly with regard to immigration, however race and immigration although related are not the same concepts.[5] There have been growing concerns in recent years about institutional racism in public and private bodies. Although various anti-discrimination laws do exist, according to some sources, most employers in the UK remain institutionally racist including public bodies such as the police[6] and the legal professions.[7][8]

I’m not saying “JKR has always been conscious of her White Privilege.” I’m not saying “she intended this from the start.” I’m saying, she started this fucking series when she was 25, she got it published when she was 32, and she is now fifty and has millions of dollars, resources, and feedback.

Hey, check it out: she’s had twenty-five years to learn.

Jo Rowling is a white British woman with a Bachelor of Arts in  French and Classics from the University of Exeter. It may very well have taken her this much time and this much exposure to the greater, wider world- outside her very white, very British influences in Tolkien and Dickens- to realize, “Oh, shit, I could/should have made my books more diverse, that’s such a lovely idea, my fans are so wonderful, I love their headcanons, they have taught me so much, I’m really lucky to have learned all of this.”

We want people to grow, don’t we? We want them to expand their minds and change. So can we please stop hating on people who weren’t born into the movement for finding it later?

Thanks.

I have a lot of feels about Hidden Figures. Go watch it for the following reasons.

  • A movie about women of color as mathematicians, and an engineer.
  • All three women are mothers. With multiple children.
  • One of them is a single mom.
  • All three are successful women of color in a time where systemic oppression was the norm.
  • Supportive husbands.
  • Sick burns against systemic racism and sexism.
  • Their names are Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson.

If you can remember a name like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart then you can remember them.

10/10 would recommend.

I’m in college, so for spring break I went to see my family. While away, I continued to text my close friends (three other girls), and we all went through the same thing. Each of our families (especially our mothers) commented multiple times on our weight. We all were being told that we had gained weight, were “too fat,” that our clothes were too tight, that we shouldn’t wear certain clothes, that we better not gain more weight and should be on a diet, etc.
To my family, I wish I told them that my weight isn’t their concern. I wish I told that I am healthy, so that is the only thing that matters.
To friends’ families, I wish I could tell them their daughters are perfect the way they are. That they can wear what they want to wear, that they are beautiful, that their health matters (not the weight), that they aren’t fat (and even if they were, that has no bearing on how beautiful they are).

“Oh, hello. I don’t suppose you’d help me find my dorm room, would you? I’m sort of…completely lost. This place is huge!”

I’d like to say God bless my son Matt for being the only one with sense and suggesting that they let Damon be tortured and not giving af about the man who killed his best friend, inadvertently got his sister killed, hooked up with his mother and threatened him multiple times.

At the same time fuck Plec for turning Caroline into a mindless cheerleading puppet for the man who raped her.

My mom is currently on island and her, Wolfgang and I took a sacred birthing class all weekend together. My mom has been sharing a lot about my birth and Wolfgang called his mom last night to ask about his. As spirit would have it, it turns out Wolfgang and I have very similar birth stories!! Both of our mothers has multiple ultrasounds with us in their bellies, we both were induced in the hospital and our mothers were both given epidurals. Both of our fathers were there physically for the birth but were emotionally unsupportive ~~ my father even told me he went to the bar as soon as I was born (he has been an alcoholic my whole life) ~~ and they both eventually left our mothers very soon after our births (My parents first separation was when I was 2) ~~ Knowing this information and the trauma caused from these types of births, I am even more excited to be intending on a water birth at home for our baby!! With our shaman, whom is also our doula. She will be holding space for the birth of this light being to be held in a sacred ceremony with music (channeling the babies soul song), singing bowls, candles and lots of trust and love. In doing so, our intention is to preserve the divine essence of the babies spirit. Rebirthing ourselves, and creating peace on Earth. We have not had any ultra sounds or used the Doppler to hear the babies heart beat (which uses ultrasound technology) during our pregnancy. There are many energetic bodies to each human vessel and such frequencies of sound bouncing off of the babies body can alter the life force of the being coming through. So HONORED to be of service to humanity, shifting the new paradigm through my transformation into motherhood.

A Compilation of Larrie Contradictions

“They baby is a doll” vs “Ugh Briana is a horrible mother to the multiple babies they are trading out”

“They are trading out babies! He looks nothing like any of his family” vs “The baby is actually Brett’s baby because he looks just like his uncle!”

“Briana is so rich and yet she lives in a townhouse? She is so gross.” vs “Briana is using Louis’s money for plastic surgery because for some unknown reason we can track her transactions and whose money she is using for what by looking at her face.”

“There is no way Louis is actually dating Danielle lol they are not even together right now at this second” vs “We can’t see Harry and Louis together and there is tangible evidence that they are not together or have seen each other in a while but they are definitely together”

“Harry and Louis almost look alike when you compare them! Amazing!” vs “Danielle looks so much like Fizzy so Louelle is incest”

“If Louis really cares why isn’t he spending a million dollars on gaining more custody?” vs “Louis isn’t gonna sue management so he and Harry can stop being closeted! He will lose all his money!!”

“When Louis tweeted about being straight and Larry bullshit and Freddie, it was management forcing him” vs “AIMH !!! He ! Tweeted ! That ! Plus he tweeted he loves us. And he tweeted Zayn. And he said Daddy Cool. And-”

“Brett is bullying and harassing Amy! It is so disgusting” vs reblogging Jungwirth flight info, wishing they could strangle her until her face turns blue, wants baby Freddie to die

“I hope Freddie trips and falls during his first steps!” vs “Omg i am worried about Freddie :(( Briana didn’t put the carseat in right”

“Briana is a horrible mother! And that is who I think the worst person in babygate is” vs “Yeah, a few parents must be letting Briana swap out their children to help closet Louis in exchange for money. The real mom is there, watching Briana mistreat her child and letting it continue happening”

“Louis is never happy around Danielle or the baby” vs Louis literally never being around Harry anymore but their relationship is amazing

“Antis are so obsessed! Ew it’s weird” vs Analyzing photos of Freddie’s chin to prove a point. Analyzing photos of Briana’s lips and stomach to prove a point. Analyzing and sexualizing the actions of a young teen boy and his bandmate to prove they are closeted and analyze everything to keep trying to prove it for half a decade.

“Lol Briana is such a greedy whore. She looks so ugly. It would be funny if she ran over Danielle” vs “Antis harass us every single day. Yes harass as in make comments about each of us personally rather than criticizing our beliefs”

“Not all Larries” vs “We are so powerful we started project no control”

“We’re just little blogs. They don’t see the stuff I say!” vs “He sees that we know he’s closeted! That’s why he keeps feeding us hints about Larry!”

“Briana is profiting off of a baby!” vs Following a Larrie that scammed people out of baby clothes, runs ads on a site about two closeted men.

Feel free to add on because I know there are more. :)

A 4 year old boy was beaten to death by his mother’s boyfriend a few days ago in a town near my hometown, so I’ve seen a lot of news about it. It’s tragic. The mom went to the hospital with the boy and she let her boyfriend flee first, who is still on the run. The boy ending up passing away in the hospital to which apparently the mom responded “Okay, so how much longer do I have to hang around here (the hospital) then?” The two have a baby together who is only a few months old, and the mother told multiple family members that “Maybe it’s best Bentley (the late son) is gone, that way we can just focus on and have one child.” I don’t know if child services has taken the infant yet but I hope so as I feel like the mother is suspicious as well. It’s such a sad story, I wish that poor boy had had a better, more loving home. Some people don’t deserve children 😢

Lazy eyed lady says:

Thursday feels…like exhaustion.

I think it’s imperative for women who are considering motherhood who might also suffer from insomnia to seriously consider that once you are a mom you will never catch up on sleep 😝. You’ll survive but sometimes you’ll feel like your holding it all together precariously…one false move, one unexpected curveball and suddenly everything can feel like too much. It’s worth it, of course. I don’t feel obligated to say that. My kids are my life, no joke. I’d most likely be in jail or o.d. by now had I not become a ma. My coping skills were shit, still are sometimes, but my kids make me want to try.

I realize after typing all that out, those feelings aren’t exclusive to mothers. Students who also work multiple jobs, dads, pretty much anyone on the planet I guess.

Here’s hoping if your feeling like things are falling apart…That it’s all too much…you find your balance…whether it’s sleep, or a night out with friends, or a night in with a good book or Netflix ha. Whatever your pleasure…we’re all in this together.


P.S. Does anyone who suffers from depression or anxiety feel like this election is draining your life away?? I want to stay informed but man…it’s a shit storm and I can’t allow these political idiots to bring me down.


Thanks for listening. ❤️

I find it so hard to express emotion and shut down when when a normal person would open up that my mother had told me on multiple occasions that she thinks I have “ice running through my veins instead of blood”. I do feel the need to keep my emotions under control, I just wish I could do that with my thoughts. I’m quite pessimistic and I can’t help it. I can easily think of all the optionsconcerning any situation, yet I always dwell on te worst case scenario possible. I just can’t let the worst happen. And the worst is often related to expressing my feelings.  [info on sun and moon signs]
