Hey friends! June was a great month over here at The 21st Century SAHM. I thought I’d put some links together in one post as a wrap-up. Thanks for following and laughing along with me!
THINGS I WROTE ABOUT
-My thoughts on white privilege and the #blacklivesmatter movement. This piece can also be found on my “Isms and Social Justice” column on Sammiches and Psych Meds.
-Ranting about how we as women revere Hollywood dads like Ryan Reynolds, but cut other moms down—even famous ones like Charlize Theron.
-Reflections on BlogU, my first blog conference—what I learned and how it helped me see what was already there.
-A story from my heart about one of the hardest times in my mother’s life, when she was having to let me go and also say goodbye to her own mother.
-As seen on Red Tricycle, my confessions about comparing my kids to other kids—and realizing that they are just exactly as they were meant to be.
-An opportunity to chat with the very funny and talented Jennifer Scharf and read my piece 7 Things I’ve Learned Now that I’m 35.
MEMES & TWEETS
Here are some funnies to make you laugh:
Kids, we shouldn't judge. We should accept people for who they are.
3: I want mustard with my chicken nuggets.
You're sick and wrong.

So proud of my kid for eating vegetables!
Friend: He's just eating dip off a carrot stick.
So proud of my kid for being near vegetables!
