mama’s multicultural musings

Five Minute Friday: 31 Day Writing Challenge

This site is for light-skinned mamas raising brown babies. I’m launching this blog alongside the 31 writing challenge hosted by Five Minute Friday.

Each day in October, I’ll be back here to share musings on the one word “prompt” that was provided to us. (I’ll be using the prompt to generate a question/topic moms of multiracial children should be consider asking)

You can expect this to be raw and unfiltered. (This isn’t my normal way of writing but I’d like to try something new!) Below are the topics I intend on writing about, buttttttt subject to change LOL
