Since this is kind of a ‘mom blog’ after all. I get the chance to drop in some sweet motherhood moments to share and remember. Today is one of those days.
Ever since Mario was born I have sung him a lullaby that I remember my own madre singing. I don’t actually remember her singing it to me but I remember her singing it to my brother, who is 13 years my junior. I adlibbed the second verse because I don’t remember how it ended. I have been singing it to him off and on throughout his life. Continue reading “sweet a.f.”
Hi friends, I write this to you on a Friday night. My cousin and our friend just left the house and Mike is out on the town. Mo is sleeping and I wanted to share my pride in the work that my BFF, and frequent contributor to Making La Madre, Emi is premiering this weekend at Sundance. Yes, Sundance. The fancy film industry snowy weekend festival in Park City, Utah. She has been working for the better part of the last two years on the film Oklahoma City. A documentary about the bombings and the movements leading up to the horrific events. See below for Emi’s notes on her trip and the film. Continue reading “Not another Weekend”

I personally super into the one above and want to definitely try it out.

2017. I caught myself writing that down with an old fashioned pen and paper today and I had a flashback to middle school. When you would have to adjust to writing the new year and it would take a month or so til you got it right. But wow, here we are, another year. Filled with quite a few blog posts. Posts about motherhood (duh), friendships, housing drama & ‘me time’.

While the title of this post is slightly in jest it is most of all a curation of my own bad habits in this role of ‘mom’. Things that I realize are habits we have formed and we are working on adjusting. But still a funny collection of all the things I forget to do or didn’t even think was something I needed to be doing- ok probably digging myself deeper here… Jumping right into ‘the five habits of a bad mom’.
