Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Shop Valentine's Day Plush
I used to get my girls a Valentine's Day basket each year, similar to an Easter basket, filled with small Valentine's Day items like craft supplies, hair accessories, and the obligatory Valentine's Day stuffed animal. This year I'm doing something similar only with a pink canvas tote in place of the basket. All those cheap holiday tubs and baskets end up wasting space and not being of any real use, but a sturdy reusable tote bag, that I know my girls will use. I picked up two pink canvas bags from the crafts store and filled each with their favorite girly things - nail polish, hair clips, candy hearts, bracelets, crafts supplies, and a stuffed animal.

You don't have to spend a lot, a trip to the dollar store or drug store can help you fill their Valentine's Day bags with plenty of girly gifts. I often purchase holiday party favors that come with several in a pack, like mini notepads. With small items like those, you don't have to worry about price vs. quality since the kids will use them up quickly anyway. I also like to save money by getting them things they always need anyway, like more craft supplies. It's a perfectly affordable way for me to make Valentine's Day special for my girls.
