We are NOT morning people! I don't think we have ever been in carline by 7:30!
Had to document us being EARLY 🐦's today!
scriptures live in my mind,
no matter the days passed,
the life of what was in grasp,
these days i catch several waves,
some ask why waves,
my reply is the constant movement,
my mind is fluid,
my heart is fluid,
this life is fluid,
so transparent if eyes open,
closed minds only seem uptight,
what is will be,
what will be is the dedication within,
lost sentiments for the given,
forgiven for the past,
in eras of the lost winds,
meaning confusion over being,
accepting this person writing these lines,
undefined by the times,
ever growing casing vibes,
writing from a 2003 vibe,
on the of the world was i,
walking on water i will be again in dreams,
in dreams i will walk on water again,
mind, spirit and body,
a life of threes,
seven for the undefeated,
even if beaten ruthless at times,
no ceilings can hold us,
we persevere over trials,
triumphant in eyes of butterflies,
in eyes of butterflies we are sweet,
a moment paused for short vision,
though learning to be,
be me, be me,
live within you at times,
then walk away,
i walk away and return to being,
the best rises from fall,
some say i write too much,
i tell them not even enough,
you should see what lives in my head,
better yet this in-differed heart,
words spoken in my lonesome,
in the bed in bleak of the night,
carrying on conversations of life,
of days lived,
of dreams wished,
of moments of bliss,
people i write for,
wondering if they truly grasp it,
did it penetrate their core,
did tears fall, did it motivate,
wonder if they saved it,
and then carrying on like it never it happened,
how life balances,
we balance life by regiment,
i am beloved some say,
just grateful those who wish to listen,
and let the words caress their spirits...

The life of a small business owner isn’t always super glamorous, but we wouldn’t trade it for the world. ♥️⠀
It’s 10 p.m. and I’m doing inventory of our newest shipment of books and Tyler is at the office processing page orders. 🌙⠀
In the beginning of our business, EVERY night after we put the kids down was like this, but as we’ve welcomed a handful of incredible team members aboard, we are slowly starting to find some balance. 🙌🏻⠀
We are both SO passionate about The Short Years and truly enjoy the work, so we have to be careful to not overdo it! 😆⠀
Do you have a business or hobby that you don’t mind staying up late to pursue? I’d love to hear about it. Comment below! 👇🏻⠀

Gender socialization is a common practice and is human nature but really we are stereotyping. How many times have we heard things like "boys dont cry", "man up", or "you throw like a girl." Well let's be honest, boys do cry all people cry, showing emotion is not a sign of weakness, its strength and a sign of a person that is comfortable with themselves and in touch with their emotions. "Man up" usually used in the context of a child getting hurt and crying. That is a normal response and children are supposed to be and act as children not adults. "You throw like a girl" is supposed to be an insult... some girls can thrown far and always hit their target just like some boys. And some girls and boys aren't very skilled at throwing.
All these are examples of toxic sayings and thoughts that spread sexism and toxic masculinity. Everyone should be able to feel and show their natural emotions and learn how to cope with them. And we should acknowledge that girls and boys can be good or bad at different things and skills aren't dependent on gender.
Culture played a huge role in how I viewed gender socialization growing up. I am a Latina with traditional Mexican parents (shown above). As a child, my dad worked 6 days a week from 8am-6pm (and he still does to this day). Sunday’s were the only day of the week we got to hang out all together as a family. My mother (although she also worked a 9-5 job) was the typical Hispanic home maker. She cooked every single night and made sure the food was hot and ready for my dad when he came home. Our house was always spotless and my sisters and I dreaded Saturday mornings, because that was “deep clean the entire house” day. We knew once we heard the Spanish music come on - my mom was going to come into our room any minute to wake us up and tell us to start cleaning.
My parents played very typical gender roles for a Mexican household. My mom took care of us and the home while my dad was the sole provider and paid all the bills. Now that I’m older and have my own kids (two boys) I do a lot of the same things my mother did. I hate a dirty house and taking care of my boys are my top priority, but having only sons - I also do some things different. Most old school Mexican mothers baby their sons to the core which wasn’t going to fly with me. Although, I love my sons dearly - I want them to learn how to cook and clean and take care of a home and be just as involved in the parenting as mothers are. I don’t want them to have to depend on a woman to take care of them (like a lot of Mexican men do) and I also want them to equally contribute in their marriage and home when they do get into a committed relationship one day.
Also, growing up my boy cousins and uncles focused on being the “macho” men of the family which is something I also never understood. It is true, yes - I do expect my sons to be tough, but I also stress to them that it is okay for them to show their emotions and feelings, because they’re human and they’re entitled to them.

Gender socialization is the behavior that is specific for each gender. It’s when males fit in and do stereotypical “guy” things and when females do stereotypical “girl” things. Most people including myself grow up thinking we have to dress a certain way, act a certain way, and do certain things based off of our gender which isn’t the case. It is okay to break away from that and dress the way you want, do things and work wherever you want, and not have to worry about your gender impacting those decisions. The students who do break those norms often times get bullied which is why we need to normalize the fact that it is okay to do the things you want even if it is against gender norms. I want to make sure my students understand it is okay to stray away from gender socialization and to be able to wear or do whatever they want no matter their gender and they will always have my support! #gender#socialization#cultureintheclassroom#boyorgirl#genderstereotypes#sunsetseniors#nightowls#stanstate2ndshift#LIBS4960docuflection2

Do you think society makes an impact on how we talk, react, and raise children? Gender socializations talks about, “the learning of behavior and attitudes considered appropriate for a given sex.” As a child, there parents, family, friends, role models, and the world around them make a huge difference on how they associate themselves and how they act depending on there social exposure. Does a child who is strong and active have to a boy? Or does a child who is quit and obedient have to be a girl? Those are questions to consider when thinking about gender socialization. Sometimes, even culture can make an impact because that is apart of your social life. #gender#socialization#cultureintheclassroom#boyorgirl#genderstereotypes#sunsetseniors#nightowls#stanstate2ndshift#libs4960docuflection2
Girls play with girls, boys play with boys. It is unladylike to curse. Boys don’t cry, and the one I detest the most, boys will be boys. These are all examples of social behaviors that we as a society are expected to follow. Gender socialization is supposed to explain why genders act differently, it is in order to learn social roles. This idea is incredibly outdated. To fit people into a box that they may not fit into is also sexist. Gender is what we may identify as, what pronouns we prefer, and if we step out of what is the preconceived notion of what we are the social consequences can be substantial. People shouldn't feel pressured to fit into the tiny box that society has laid out for them. As future educators it is important to keep our minds open to all the different kinds of people we will encounter and to encourage what makes them unique. We must be a support system for those new ideas and those who need help. I chose this image because I think the time has come to be rid of the notion that one sex is better than the other, that one can do no harm but the other must be held accountable. #gender#socialization#cultureintheclassroom#boyorgirl#genderstereotypes#sunsetseniors#nightowls#stanstate2ndshift#LIBS4960docuflection2

Not everyone should wake up and go to sleep at the same time. This, unfortunately, is the nature of the modern world. 🤦🏻♂️You have to be at school or work during early morning hours and this alters one’s performance on a variety of tasks due to misaligned #circadianrhythms . 🕰
The reason people should wake up and go to sleep at different times is because of something called a chronotype, which is simply one’s built in, biological 🧬 preference for when they’re most alert or most drowsy. The inquisitive 🤓 ones may ask why we even have chronotypes in the first place and we have them because (assuming in our evolutionary past that humans lived in groups) it shrank the amount of time dangerous predators 🐅could attack us throughout the night. •
Another tidbit about chronotypes is that they are STRONGLY determined by #genetics . There are generally three different chronotypes (Yes, Michael Breus talks about 4, but I’m not sure how accurate being an insomniac/dolphin 🐬 actually is…): morning types (40% of the population), evening types/night owls 🦉(30% of the population), and 30% are in-between morning and evening types. •
The fact that there are #chronotypes poses a problem for night owls due to a morning-centric culture driven by hyper-productivity. Consequently, night owls fail to get the sleep they need and perform poorly (cognitively and physically) 🤕🤒due to #sleepdeprivation . #nightowls also end up with higher rates of depression, anxiety, diabetes, cancer, heart attack, and stroke due to morning-centric cultural norms. It’s very unfair, but having a victim mentality will only make one’s situation worse in this respect. Addressing this issue requires either individualized approaches to #learning (something that we may see soon with the AI 🤖) OR getting rid of #earlyschoolstarttimes . We’ll see how this plays out in the future...

Gender socialization is something I’ve really faced off against recently. The idea of boys and girls having to fit in a certain idea of living. For the majority of my life I’ve lived with the idea of “be a man”. Don’t have feelings, don’t wear “girly colors” and keep your hair short. That’s the dominant group that I grew up with around me.
I chose this picture because it’s my representation of breaking gender socialization. I’ve been growing my hair out for close to two years now. Along the way I’ve heard both praise and criticism. I’ve of course been told the usual attempted insults of “get a haircut, you hippy” and “you have a hair like a girl.” As a teacher I want to show my students they can be whatever they want to be regardless of gender. My hair is a symbol of that. I didn’t have any long haired males to look up to to realize that long hair was an option. So I want to be that role model that shows his students that people shouldn’t be held to a lifestyle just because of gender. #gender#socialization#cultureintheclassroom#boyorgirl#genderstereotypes#sunsetseniors#nightowls#stanstate2ndshift#LIBS4960docuflection2

I chose this meme to represent gender socialization because it symbolizes how outdated we are with our changing times and how we are supposed to progress as a society for the better instead of being content with the oppressive gender roles placed upon us since before the 1950’s.
Gender socialization is the social and cultural norms that are placed upon us which assigns each gender certain roles, behaviors, and expectations that we are supposed to follow. If those expectations are not met, there are social consequences that ensue. Gender socialization pressures all of society but especially those who steer from their assigned gender. Society assumes that the gender we must abide with is the biological sex we were born as. When we agree to these societal rules, we are labeled as cisgender which is considered the “normal” dominant group in gender culture. When we are born as one sex but follow the opposite gender roles, we are transgender. Finally, if we decide to not follow any gender we are genderqueer, genderfluid or nonbinary. No matter what, we are labeled but those who go against the norms are either stared at, judged,treated as less than, harassed, and sometimes even assaulted just because they go against gender socialization.
As educators, we must always encourage students to be themselves and to love themselves for who they are. If they are boys who like to play with dolls, or girls who like to play in the mud, it is our duty to assure them that it’s okay. It is important to build relationships with students and to remind them that our classroom will always be a safe place for them. #gender#socialization#cultureintheclassroom#boyorgirl#genderstereotypes#sunsetseniors#nightowls#stanstate2ndshift#LIBS4960docuflection2
