Getting to the dentist every 6 months with 5 kids takes an extreme amount of planning. I would never take them all at once because that would of course take all day. It would also use up all the poor dentist available appts. It would be Whitlock Day. I break them up into groups. First Tori because she is the hardest to schedule. Then Tres and Jordan go a few weeks later. Natalie and Kobe go within the month after the boys. We are blessed to have a wonderful pediatric dentist who puts the kids at ease. They actually look forward to going. I read Kobe a book about going to the dentist to prepare him for the visit. We talked all afternoon about the FUN trip we would have. When it was time to clean his teeth it took 2 people to hold him down. I did not stay, im not good at handling those eyes looking up at me as if I had betrayed him in some way. There was a window right outside the room and soon after I left he calmed down. Which helped me to calm down. He walked out of the room smiling and ready to get his prize from the treasure box. Thank God Natalie, the professed dental visit expert, had no problems with her visit.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
