Are you looking for help in raising your kid(s) bilingually and biculturally? Then this free event might be for you! I am super excited to attend. I don’t think you can ever have enough information. Follow @latinamotherscollaborative for the lineup of speakers and the rsvp information. Space is limited so rsvp asap! β™₯️

When I was at Community College my English Teacher, Ms. Wagstaff gave us a writing assignment. The assignment was to analyze a photograph from history. When @carolina_adame shared this picture of Vicky and I, I was reminded of that exercise and it brought me to tears. You see perhaps you are focusing on Vicky’s face and her eyes piercing at the camera...My eyes go to her hands gently holding onto my shirt. It brings me to tears because Carolina captured the beauty and the reality of our relationship. She stands front and center in this life that is unfolding before her. I stand behind her: taller, older, hopefully wiser in the ways of this world. And she clings and holds onto me in any way she can reminding me that she is still afraid of this world and not ready to let go, not even for the things that would seem easy for a 7 year old, like taking a picture. She is not ready to walk thru this life without me, her security blanket from the womb. Today, as I walk into this 7th year of her life I want to embrace her love for me and remind her that she doesn’t ever have to fully let go. I will be standing behind her in this life and beyond so that she can gently hold onto me however and whenever she needs to. Forever her mama I will be. β™₯️ Happy Birthday my love. πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽπŸŽ‰

It has been too long since our last podcast but life gets hectic and we just have to have some grace with ourselves and move forward, right? Conscious Parenting is very near and dear to my heart. I have to share that I didn't feel confident in my own "Conscious Parenting" path so I hesitated to do a podcast on Conscious Parenting. I was literally thinking, "what makes me think I know enough to talk about it?" But after attending the Evolve Conference a few weeks ago I realized that I have to trust myself more. So here it is--our first podcast on Conscious Parenting. If you are so moved, please take a moment to leave us a review on Itunes! β™₯️

This is the Mexico that my kids and I enjoyed this past summer. I look at this picture and imagine all of these people that we shared space with and wonder if they are ok. We have been sending our love to those impacted by the earthquake and today we also donated to the rescue and rebuilding efforts via the Izzi/Televisa Amazon Wishlist. Guys it took me less than five minutes. We can all do something. If this way of helping speaks to you please consider buying off of the Amazon Wishlists (link in bio) or consider donating to one of the many organizations helping our Mexican brother and sisters. @pattyrodriguez has a link in her bio of organizations accepting donations. Thanks to @academicmami for sharing the amazon wishlist. That is how I first heard about it. As I write this my heart aches because I know people are still stuck in the rubble, many of them kids and I am also proud of how people are responding, coming together to help eachother. Let's also be part of that human chain; part of the helping hands. We can all do something. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ P.S. The amazon prices will be in pesos because it is from Mexico. The exchange rate is about 17 pesos to the US dollar and a small exchange rate fee will probably also be charged by your bank.

I officially said goodbye to #Evolve2017 today. This fourth day was an all day silent meditation. I think I may have taken more from today than the other days. I realized that this is my next step. I have to stop looking outside of me for the wisdom. I have to stop looking to the next podcast, the next book, the next speaker, the next...the next...the next...All of these amazing people I listen to, read and watch can only take me so far and then I have to fly. I have to start investing as much time looking inward as I have spent looking out. My answers are waiting for me within. I have to stop doing. I have to just be and trust that the answers to my questions, the wisdom will come. I have to trust. I have to trust. I have to trust. Thanks @drshefalitsabary πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜

Happy Sunday everybody! This is a special episode for us. If you have read our blogs or listened to our podcasts you know that we both talk about how we were raised. We believe that reflecting back on your own upbringing can help you be a better parent. It was super special to take this conversation to my in-laws. Listening to them talk about how they were raised and reflect on their own parenting journey, including at the end, what they would do differently is something we will treasure. I feel like I now have such a deeper understanding and appreciation of them. I cannot wait to interview my parents. Link in bio, iTunes and on our website. πŸ’ž

How did two people with such big dreams and crazy ideas find each other in a small town? When I stop to think about all of the things that had to happen in order for us to find each other I am reminded of what a miracle it was. I have only one wish for us today on our anniversary: May we always follow the same North star. I love you @paulomenchaca β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

Our wedding anniversary is on Monday but we went out to dinner to celebrate today. We made last minute reservations @maestropasadena Food was amazing, drinks were great, but most of all I enjoyed spending uninterrupted time alone with Paulo. We chatted away and the two hours felt like 20 minutes. β™₯️

We had such a great time yesterday at the @la_mamacitas Summer Event! Thanks for having us. πŸ™πŸΌ I loved chatting with some of my favorite mamacitas. It was also incredible for us to get to hear from some of the peeps who have been listening to our podcast! Time flew by so fast that I felt like I didn't have enough time to chat. Let's do it again soon! πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

Last Saturday we released our 4th podcast. Recording it wasn't actually the hard part for me, (although after listening to it you may think otherwise). Releasing it was actually the hardest part for me. A few people have reached out to let me know how this episode helped them and that has made all the difference for me. I say this with absolute sincerity: hearing from all of you has helped me more than I could have possibly helped you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Hi there! πŸ€— It has been a while since I posted up in here. It has been a conscious choice not to do so. Not because I didn't have beautiful pictures to share but rather because the beauty failed to capture what I was actually feeling and I felt inauthentic showing you the beauty and not the pain. You see, I actually believe that if I can be of any value to you in this space, it will primarily be by showing you how I fall and break and then get up and learn and grow. Our family trip to Mexico was beautiful, yes! And yet it also brought me to my knees. It wasn't until today that I felt like I was ready to share this with you because my other truth is that being vulnerable and sharing my feelings out loud is actually still a muscle that I am building. All I can say for now is get ready guys because the next podcasts and blogs are coming and I hope you are all ready to get deep really fast with me.

No edit needed here, just a little vignette around the edges. Slowly the kids are getting used to this non-internet life. So are we. 😜
