Postpartum Body Gratitude

woman checking out her belly in front of mirror

From Awe to Ugh! During pregnancy I was in awe of my tummy transformation. I saw it morph into this giant ball and contort as my baby wiggled around in there. Although the phase of pregnancy itself was far from the 9 months of continual bliss portrayed on TV, I anticipated our baby’s arrival in gratitude and disbelief of what my body was capable of. It didn’t matter that it was baby number two. I was aware of the miracle at hand.   After Leo's arrival looking at my tummy’s reflection in the mirror was no longer awe but awful....

Pregnancy Blues

Pregnancy Blues

No one quite prepares you for the ups and downs pregnancy can bring. Growing up we are led to believe that for 9 months we will live in a joyful, blissful state of constant gratitude while our little buns cooks in the oven. But let’s get real. Pregnancy is not a walk in the park; it is the ultimate state of vulnerability and strength all wrapped into one.   Pregnancy Confessions   In my case, this is my second pregnancy so I was in no way anticipating a fairy tale ride. However, I was not expecting the dramatic mood swings...

Be proud of your heritage, but gosh darn it, go out and vote!

Voto Latino- Mamas Con Ganas

  Although I often say that I am an international citizen—having grown up in Venezuela, the United States and France—I am 100% Latina. I crave my arepas, pabellón and can't resist dancing whenever I hear reggaeton, salsa or merengue. My husband will add that I automatically switch to Spanish as my default language when I'm tired. I also swap to Spanish without fail when I feel the urge to swear "Cónchale!" (that's my clean version obviously) or in a romantic mood (mi vida, mi amorcito lindo). Pobresito, mi hubby Canadiense. He had no choice but to...

“Bring on the Routine!” or “Yuck, no thanks!”

Little hands drawing between school supplies and apples

La locura escolar El verano se está acabando y con eso regresa la locura escolar: homework battles with my now feisty yet adorable eight-year-old son, his three-day a week, one and a half hour soccer practices that make me feel like a part-time Uber driver, and plain old routine in all its forms. Yuck! (That’s my inner third-grade self expressing her honest sentiments regarding the end of #summerfun.)   [caption id="attachment_2474" align="aligncenter" width="528"] Luciano's first day of third grade[/caption]   I’ll admit, this time around, I feel more anxious about the start of the school year than my son does....
