Are we Hurting or Helping Our Children?

How often do we judge ourselves on not being the parent we think we should be? Should being the key word here. This is the first lie we tell ourselves when judging our own parenting skills. There’s a big difference between the kind of parent we think we should be and the actual parent we are. And the first step in becoming a better parent is accepting the kind of species that we are when raising our little ones.

Hoy quiero invitarlas a que nos tomemos un buen tiempo para estar con nuestros hijos y tener más calidad al compartir con ellos. Y esto es no solo para las mamás que trabajan, a quienes entiendo, pues soy una de ellas, y me consta lo que sentimos al no poder estar con nuestros chiquitos como queremos. Sino también a las mamás que están 100% disponibles para atender sus pequeñitos. Todas, cada una en nuestra manera, queremos tiempo con estas personitas que nos llaman MAMÁ.

Play Dates. It's Complicated.

Going on one’s first playdate almost feels like a right of passage. You dream of your child meeting their new best friend, and imagine them growing up together side by side. You’re hopeful to find a new best friend yourself, a new mom who understands what you’re going through, and start planning future dates for lunch, coffee, shopping, mommy and me classes, and maybe even double dates with your spouses before you’ve even really met. It will be perfect! But what if it’s nothing like that? What if you have absolutely nothing in common except the fact that you’ve birthed a child recently? What if you have completely different approaches in parenting? What if your child is developmentally delayed and their kid is running in circles around yours?

Living in the Now

Earlier tonight, I was snuggled up behind Mason as I lay with him in his new car bed waiting for him to fall asleep. He was facing away from me and my arms were wrapped tightly around his delicious little body. Somehow my hand inadvertently ended up perfectly wedged between the mattress and his chest, and I could feel every beat of his tiny heart on my fingertips. I usually leave shortly after I'm sure he has dozed off into dream land. But tonight, I lingered for a while longer.
