What is Mamademics?
Mamademics chronicles my life as I attempt to balance my roles as a wife, mother, and academic. You can count on me for funny parenting stories and gut-wrenching essays that tackle the hard subjects that many people avoid. The latter are the posts that have helped me find my calling in a social justice advocacy resource website for parents entitled, Raising an Advocate, which was inspired by my first viral post, Why White Moms Need To Care About Murdered Black Children.

Meet the Family
Sesame has all the best parts of our personalities rolled into one tiny human. He loves things with wheels, family vacations, helping us out in the kitchen, books, building towers, and science experiments. He’s really into music and loves Hip Hop, Old School RnB, Classical, and Jazz. I told yall he’s been here. He’s already decided he’s going to be a dentist one day because they have video games and movies on big TVs in their office. Sesame currently attends a cooperative preschool and is thriving there with their play to learn model. He is the inspiration for Raising an Advocate.
