Aisha’s Personal Update:
Now, on a personal note, I recently celebrated my 40th birthday (for the 7th time, Haha!) and I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as my youngest approaches her fourth birthday. While I’m happy to see them grow and become more independent, I can’t help but feel a little sad that the toddler years are coming to an end. Also, my 8-year-old will be going to sleep away camp this summer for a week! YAY! I’ve been eagerly waiting to register her for the last 8 months, and it finally happened!
Oh, and with this early spring weather, I’m looking forward to wearing light, flowy, and colorful clothing and possibly scheduling some time in with my imaginary-guy-crush!

I can’t wait to feature your voices in the monthly newsletter where we’ll dive deep into your most pressing questions. Huge shoutout to Carsta for her brave question that inspired next month’s discussion topic!
“What does the “feminist” in you thinks about an SMC journey. Is it a conflict to both celebrate the achievement to be able to have babies (almost) independent of men and to have to do the care work all by yourself?” SMC from Norway, mom to a 2.5-year-old
My short answer: It’s complicated, but my version of feminism is rooted and nicely captured in three sources:
2. Mikki Kendal’s Hood Feminism

Get ready because the March newsletter is going to be packed, including my response to SMC in Norway’s brave question!
