What a week...I never did get a firm grasp of it, I was constantly catching up. Looking forward to the weekend, it's busy too but I'll be with my family...and that's all I need. πŸ™ˆ#chorescanwait

Up bright + early this morning to host the Sexual + Reproductive Health Day Breakfast with @optionsforsexualhealth At Opt they care about the healthy sexuality of everyone - all ages, all genders and all orientations in BC. They offer sexual and reproductive healthcare, information + education from a feminist, pro-choice, sex positive perspective and are committed to providing confidential, nonjudgmental, comprehensive and unbiased services.
Today @tru.a.wilson was recognized as Opt's first ever youth Sexual Health Champion. Tru is 13, she has advocated for sexual health rights, particularly trans rights and gender identity, she inspires others through her work. If you don't know Tru, google her - she's incredible.
That's her mom @creativewilson on the left, I have known Michelle for a long time...how beautiful to come full circle and have breakfast this morning. ⭐

Thank you @saleema.noon.educators for asking me to MC today. xx

Edit: SOLD OUT. I love documentaries, a few weeks ago I saw Eating You Alive - thanks to @indianrockvegans (they are in the doc) The film really hit home for me, ever since my cancer diagnosis I have been hyper aware of food and what we eat in our family.
I'm lucky to know some pretty inspiring people and we decided to screen the film to share with others.
The next Mindful Movie Night is happening Tuesday, February 28th at @stretchvancouver! I'm excited to join @erinireland @genieveyoga @juicetruck + @lilkatehorsman to screen @_eatingyoualive - a new doc about why certain food choices cause chronic diseases and which ones can save your life (if you liked Forks Over Knives, you'll love this film). Fittingly, plant-based nutrition expert @lilkatehorsman will be serving some of her killer snacks, show starts at 7:30pm and maybe bring a cushion? The doc is two hours! To reserve a spot, email Erin at erin@itstodiefor.ca. Tickets are $10 at the door and we hope you can stick around for a short discussion post-flick. #MindfulMovieNight ✌🏻️

How cute is this! Sweet Beckett, ZoΓ« + Poppy πŸ’– Happy Valentine's Day + thank you @noellenikas for the happy gram. πŸ’œ

This is a first, Beckett writing his name on all of his Valentine's Day cards for his classmates (ZoΓ« wrote the names of the kids for him). I sent a video of this to B's SSW because they have been working so hard on printing. You know what she said? "Good for him Tamara. That kid has more drive to be successful than most kids I know." Of course this made my heart burst. πŸ’› I have a few pet peeves when it comes to how others describe people with Down syndrome - almost like everyone with Down syndrome is the same.
Sometimes people say, 'people with Down syndrome are so happy' - ummmm not always, that extra chromosome doesn't make my kid happy - he's happy because everyone around him is happy.
Or 'people with Down syndrome are stubborn' - ummm no, not true. I'm stubborn and Dave's not. Beckett's extra chromosome doesn't make him stubborn.
So having Beckett's SSW say that he has 'drive to be successful' makes me feel proud because he comes by that honestly. That's how his mummy + daddy are, driven - his extra chromosome didn't do that for him. That's just who he is. ⭐

We believe in equality, we are feminists.
I bought three of these #feminist necklaces from @gunnerandlux - we proudly wear them all the time. ⭐⭐⭐

We're so in love with our new kittens @broccoliandbrusselsprout This is Broccoli, he's relaxed, curious + confident...it's a lot of fun getting to know their personalities. Broccoli loves nothing more than laying in our arms, sleeping like a baby. If you have seen my insta stories you know what this guy thinks about @georgetheairedale ! It's really nice to have cats in our home, they're so good with the kids + the kids adore them. ❀

Family. I love that I could bring the girls with me to my workout with @dailyroutinefitness They didn't have school today, it was super exciting for them to 'workout'. Rachel was so great, she has three kids so my chaos doesn't faze her. Also, ZoΓ« won those goggles at her swim meet yesterday, she wore them for the entire workout. πŸ’ͺ🏻
