Chat With Bee


Day 11 of Black History Month For Grown-Ups: My good friend Chat With Bee is teaching us about Oscar winner Hattie McDaniel and her contributions to the entertainment industry.
Check out the blog post below from Chat With Bee who provides some great tips to enjoy the summer while practicing water safety.

-- "The moment we've all been waiting for is upon us! June 5 marks the beginning of summer this year and I couldn't be more excited. E-learning will be done, the kids will finally get to relax, and you might even get to spend some days at the pool or beach -- in a social distancing friendly way of course."

Do you remember your first library card?⁣

With all of the technology we have today, physical books can seem like a thing of the past — but they’re not! I remember when I got my very first library card and I wanted MiniMe to have that same experience. Thanks to the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, she did!⁣

⁣PS — September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month 📚💳

Big Mood

Do you find it difficult to describe your moods?

Even though I work in mental health, I still have find it hard to put my moods into words sometimes. I’ve also had so many big feelings lately that it has been a little hard to keep track.

That’s why I love Silk + Sonder. Their journals come equipped with several options I can use to track my moods and identify any patterns that may exist. It’s also super fun to color-code my moods because it adds a creative element to them.

I’d love to get you started on your journey to tracking your feelings and more with your very own Silk+Sonder journal. Save on the most colorful lifestyle habit you’ll start this year by entering ChatwithBee15off at checkout!

Dear Big Little Sis,⁣

Words can’t express how proud I am of you. When we were younger, we both had the same goal — you were just so much more dedicated to it than I was. The obstacles I allowed to break me, you obliterated with style and grace. You broke barriers and chains I could’ve never imagined putting a dent in. The field of medicine will be a much better place with you in it. May every child you treat and every family you meet witness the goodness of your heart and the purity of your soul, as you walk out this gift God placed in you 23 years ago.⁣

I’ll always be your biggest fan.⁣

Your Little Big Sis aka Bitty ⁣

What sorts of Easter goodies do you enjoy in your home?⁣

Being both Jamaican & Guyanese, I grew up having the best of both worlds — which my little family benefits from. ⁣

Earlier this week, I made my very first Easter bun 🇯🇲 using a recipe from Jamdown_Foodie and it was top notch! ⁣

Yesterday, I made hot cross buns 🇬🇾 using a recipe from Jehan Can Cook — again, delish!⁣

The Future is Female⁣

What does your child want to be when s/he grows up?⁣

Kamala has an apologetic love for science. So, I knew I couldn’t pass up this chemistry kit from Thames & Kosmos when I saw it at Sam's Club last week.⁣

They say kids have their whole childhood to figure out what they want to be when they grow up. However, we strongly feel that it’s the parents’ job to plant that seed early. Whether she wants to be a doctor, scientist, or an astrophysicist — we will continue to help her cultivate that seed now so she can keep it alive when it sprouts. ⁣

It’s hard to believe this was just one year ago!

How do you want to go down in history?⁣

Tomorrow, Kamala Harris will make history as the first Black and female VP of the United States. Today, I made history by being featured in a GMA/ABC News article highlighting blended families ahead of the inauguration [link below]. This is key because both Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ families are blended — another historic milestone.⁣

Similar to Dr. Jill Biden, I entered stepmotherhood following the loss of a biological parent. Similar to Kamala Harris, I’m the daughter of immigrants (Jamaica & Guyana) and I have no biological children of my own. As I shared in the article, there’s always a negative connotation associated with stepmoms. People are so quick to coin us as evil, bad people — when in reality, we just want the best for our families just like any good parent should.⁣

Being a stepmom has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. They say parenting is one of the most thankless jobs, but if there’s such a thing as a more thankless version — this just might be it. However, it is a calling that I’ve been strategically positioned to walk forth in. God doesn’t call the qualified — He qualifies the called...and He definitely doesn’t make mistakes.⁣

I’d like to thank Good Morning America and ABC News for opening their platforms for me to share my story. It is my hope that blended families around the world benefit from learning about my experiences. I’d also like to thank Naja Hall from VIP Stepmom by Naja Hall and Blended and Black for helping me to find my voice. Last but certainly not least, I’d like to my husband for sharing his children with me because without him, there would’ve been no story to tell.⁣
