My house is full of the sounds of roaring and stomping on a daily basis, and I’ve stepped, (quite painfully), on more dinos than I’d like to admit.I’m always trying to find fun and new activities for the boys that incorporate their favorite items.

Blippi Live Review

Tuesday night we had the opportunity to go see the newest addition to the “Blippi-verse,” Blippi Live. Needless to say, the kids were overjoyed. I was slightly nervous, wondering if they would realize that the “Blippi” they were seeing in person wasn’t actually Stevin John and I’d have to potentially defuse a bad situation. However, the gentleman that they chose to portray Blippi, was pretty spot on. If I hadn’t spent more hours than I’d like to admit staring at the “real” Blippi, (thanks to Finn for watching him on repeat), I’d likely never know the difference. The kids were utterly entranced the entire time he was on stage.

Ending An Era Of Colorblindness

Let’s face it, teaching a child to be colorblind isn’t just a stupid idea, it’s dangerous. By doing the whole, ‘We’re the same,’ thing, you’re dismissing what a black kid or any person of color deals with. Instead of tackling the hard truths of what racism is and how a person of color might have a different struggle than you, you teach them to ignore.

I get it. Talking about racism is hard. No parent wants to tell their children that their skin color determines their place in society. And especially white colorblind parents don’t want to admit that racism is still just as prevalent today as it was 60+ years ago. Instead, we want to glorify leaders like MLK and talk about how amazing it was that they helped end segregation, and thus racism. We want to act like our white privilege doesn’t exist anymore.
