Valentine’s Day and Black History month are both over but I want to show love to the little black girls. Oh, what a time it is to be a young black girl. I’m happy that my girls are growing up during this Black Girl Magic movement. This is the totally opposite of my youth experience.

Post update: I went on a rant on IG about trying to get my kids to act right. I created a Reward Chart for the girls. Click HERE for your free printable. Tag me on IG (@heytrinasmall) if you use it. Good luck!
