and I am one hot mess, passionate, and extroverted mama. Before I became a mother, I was obsessed with languages, and culture. I was a forever student and went on to get my BA and MA in Spanish Translation and Latin American studies. Basically, I never wanted a 9-5, so, I decided to get pregnant my last semester of grad school. Although I use my degree to do some freelance translating, I use it most in raising my bilingual son.
Once I became a mama back in 2017, life took a somersault. I fell into a deep postpartum depression, my infant never slept, and on top of that, he suffered from reflux. My son’s first year of life taught me a lot of lessons, and that’s why I decided to create this blog to bridge my before-mom-life and now to share my best tips and advice.
my rambunctious and outgoing toddler. Once we survived our first year together, life started feeling normal again. My sleepless, colicky infant turned into an energetic, adventurous (might I add bossy) little sidekick. We keep ourselves busy exploring the outdoors, playing sports, crafting, and learning about life side-by-side.
While I still post about my struggles during my first year of motherhood, I now incorporate our toddler adventures and bilingual education, and we will soon be integrating more lifestyle posts.
