This will be the first year we will celebrate Kwanzaa, and it’s very exciting to learn more about it. My son and I are memorizing the Nguzo Saba, and I have already prepared the “mihindi”. We colour Kwanzaa pages and talk about the harvest season.
It’s been a rough week for me, and as I am in anguish, my son has really pulled through to do more self-led learning and even helping clean the house without my provocation. This demonstrates to me that I may need to step back sometimes and see what my son is capable of.
