That’s right today is the official day WOW 5 years of Blogging on GUB. THANK YOU SO MUCH, For seeing us grow, for cheering us on, for supporting us in all moments, and for always being kind and loving to our family!
My very first post was not a greatly written but it was be beginning to finding an outlet that would allow the conversation to grow and join parents alike to share relatable situations!
My words still ring loud and clear in my head from the day I wrote them:
This is when it hit me, not only will my kids have a hard time defending who they are but we will too. As parents, we are going to be challenged each and every day by people who don’t know any better or are quick to judge. Although it may be OK to be angry NOW my goal is to show my children different. I don’t want them to feel hurt or angry. I want them to feel good about themselves and who they are. I want them to be able to understand and explain to someone that they are different but that’s OK. My children will be raised Black and Mexican. They will love who they are and grow up proud.
My goals continue to be the same my kids to grow happy healthy and raised to be proud of their two cultural backgrounds! You have seen how they’ve grown, my efforts to teach them our traditions, and to be proud of the differences!
I can’t thank you enough for the comments and tweets through these 5 years. They have kept us grounded and always inspired to want to share more.
