Short, nerdy, artistic Mom. Whoovian. Hufflepuff. I draw stuff, mostly World of Warcraft (I don't play anymore, but love the lore), Pokemon (I definitely still play this) and comic characters. I like role playing games and being with my family.

We babywear, breastfeed, cosleep, cobathe, and are anti-RIC and anti-spanking. Most of my posts will be comics, tabletop RPGs, nerdy stuff, art, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, World of Warcraft, rape culture, feminism, gender and non gender equality, equal marriage, and thigs about living mental illnesses and domestic abuse. I will occasionally post about parenting stuff, and I will not tag breastfeeding pictures as nudity or nsfw, just a warning. If you do need me to tag something triggering, just ask! I try to tag my stuff, but I miss some things and sometimes mobile doesn't post them. My askbox is open.

 

Reblog for free doodles of your oc's   

krokadilly:

Reblog this with a picture of an OC of your choice and I’ll doodle it for you, completely free. I’ll post the doodles on my blog with the tag, ‘#krokadoodlie’.

I will try pretty much any species/creature, but don’t expect perfection. These are completely free doodles after all.

The only rule…

2011?! Cripes, that is some old art, not that I’ve had a chance to drww anything while taking care of a baby, but you know. He’s a Tauren Restoration Druid from World of Warcraft, though a minotaur works, too. He’s not super buff and he’s actually kind of short and fluffy. They only have 2 fingers and 1 thumb, if you didn’t know. He’s very gentle, so something involving nature or animals would be cool, or even green magic. This is a really cool thing of you to do! Hope you don’t get overwhelemed :)

I’ll never punish my daughter for saying no.

The first time it comes out of her mouth, I’ll smile gleefully. As she repeats “No! No! No!” I’ll laugh, overjoyed. At a young age, she’ll have mastered a wonderful skill. A skill I’m still trying to learn. I know I’ll have to teach her that she has to eat her vegetables, and she has to take a nap. But “No” is not wrong. It is not disobedience.

1. She will know her feelings are valid.
2. She will know that when I no longer guide her, she still has a right to refuse.

The first time a boy pulls her hair after she says no, and the teacher tells her “boys will be boys,” we will go to her together, and explain that my daughter’s body is not a public amenity. That boy isn’t teasing her because he likes her, he is harassing her because it is allowed. I will not reinforce that opinion. If my son can understand that “no means no” so can everyone else’s.

3. She owes no one her silence, her time, or her cooperation.

The first time she tells a teacher, “No, that is wrong,” and proceeds to correct his public school, biased rhetoric, I’ll revel in the fact that she knows her history; that she knows our history. The first time she tells me “No” with the purpose and authority that each adult is entitled, I will stop. I will apologize. I will listen.

4. She is entitled to her feelings and her space. I, even a a parent, have no right to violate them.
5. No one has a right to violate them.

The first time my mother questions why I won’t make her kiss my great aunt at Christmas, I’ll explain that her space isn’t mine to control. That she gains nothing but self doubt when she is forced into unwanted affection. I’ll explain that “no” is a complete sentence. When the rest of my family questions why she is not made to wear a dress to our reunion dinner. I will explain that her expression is her own. It provides no growth to force her into unnecessary and unwanted situation.

6. She is entitled to her expression.

When my daughter leaves my home, and learns that the world is not as open, caring, and supportive as her mother, she will be prepared. She will know that she can return if she wishes, that the real world can wait. She will not want to. She will not need to. I will have prepared her, as much as I can, for a world that will try to push her down at every turn.

7. She is her own person. She is complete as she is.

I will never punish my daughter for saying no. I want “No” to be a familiar friend. I never want her to feel that she cannot say it. She will know how to call on “No” whenever it is needed, or wanted.

We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story.

“Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together.
And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day.

The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees.



And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already.

Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School.

‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success.

‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer.

‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’



The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs.

Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City.

‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms.

‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “

new undies: cute stretchmarks: also cute

No no no and NO stretch marks are never cute!! wtf too lazy to go get some cocoa butter and use it daily? We all have stretch marks but we can get rid of it.. People should take care of themselves and if cocoa butter didnt work for you make an appointment for a laser stretch mark removal dont be a lazy ass

hey quick question: what’s your fuckin damage

all stretch marks are beautiful no exceptions 

stretch marks are perfectly fine and natural and beautiful, free lightning bolt tattoos yo
cocoa butter is a preventative that does not always work, and smells and stains clothes and oh yeah, since a lot of people get stretch marks just from growing NOT from weight, theyd have to slather their whole body and no one really wants to do that or smell like that so strongly.
laser treatment? really? you want people to pay $1000+/appt (usually takes a few treatments) to get rid of something perfectly natural because you’ve named yourself standard of the fucking world and think we all live to please you? most people dont have that money and if they do thats not what they want to spend it on.
also fuck you.

I usually don’t reblog ladies in undies, but for real. Don’t fuckin’ knock people over stretchmarks, or anything on their bodies for that matter. I’ve been underweight all my life and have them from growing. They happen. The just do. 

those thighs and the stretch marks unffffff

Oh so much has been going on. With my Brother coming home and my full time responsibilities for my 11mo, a week feels like a month and a half and a day feels like a week.

I’m really looking forward to reading my newest novel purchases. They are gentle parenting guidelines by L.R.Knost, and she always has amazing reviews and her quotes are so hard hitting. I will only be able to read them while my baby is sleep-nursing, but I’m a very fast reader, and it will be a nice change to reading on my tablet.

I really hope I can convince my Mother-in-Law and Husband to give them a gander. The Husband is on board with at least trying gentle parenting, but the MIL is unconvinced and she tends to try to sway his opinion if hers differs, especially from mine. Thankfully, my Husband trusts my instincts and experiences with our baby and generally lets me make the parenting decisions, and he is open to discussion about it if he is opposed to anything.

Went for a long walk with my Brother (just home from mental health facility, see previous personal post), partly because he needs to get outside and exercise for his mental health, partly because I need general exercise and to get out more, and mostly because we are spending more time together. We went to the local gaming store and bought a Palladium Fantasy sourcebook (The Wolven Empire) which he helped me pick out because he’s been wanting to play more Rifts. The walk back got difficult, as the baby had been awake for an hour before we left and our walk to the store lasted around an hour. She got grumpy, but wouldn’t let me put her in the stroller afrer she fell asleep nursing. In order to nurse her without the sun in her face I had to hold her sideways (like lifting something with your arms) and carry her (the ring sling was useless to help in this position) for a mile and a half.

MY ARMS ARE NOODLES. LIMP NOODLES.

Brother and I talked about a lot of stuff, like how he’s worried about high school because of his depression and sensitive mental state, and how he wasn’t aware our Mom had been really good at playing Magic the Gathering, and how much we loved The Beatles, and commenting on pretty houses and yards.

I haven’t had any time for writing up characters or doing other things like watching movies or playing games, really, unless I’m doing it with him and the baby. Maybe I’ll get his help writing up some special Toon Tuesday posts. We’re going to start having family game night and just doing more things together in general. I still don’t know when I’ll have the energy and time to dedicate to flipping between multiple sourcebooks and my tablet, rolling dice and scribbling bonuses in the margin.

So much more going on, too. The Upnorths (family) have been getting all over our cases about decisions regarding my Brother and his care. He wanted to tell them himself about his condition, but didn’t get the chance to before he was institutionalized, so they were upset that we didn’t tell them from the start. I’m not sorry for that decision, it is his illness and frankly none of their business if he doesn’t want it to bem I don’t care if he’s “only 15”. I understand that they love him, but they don’t seem to get that letting him have control over who knows is a very important part of his recovery.

Trying to get the house in order. Baby is afraid of vacuums and brooms. Thankfully my Husband is awesome and has been shouldering many of the neglected chores.

I haven’t drawn in a year. Wow. That is a looong time. I’m sure I can get back up to my regular speed in no time. But the problem lies in having no time.

Trying to find personal outlets that are also not time or energy consuming is hard. Though not impossible. Sometimes I manage to play Skyrim for a few nurse naps, and beating up bad guys always helps. I also love spending time with my family. My baby has started raspberrying my skin (which seems to mean less biting, too!) She can also roll a ball to me so we can play “catch”, which is just great.

Just a lot going on lately. But it’s looking up.
