I seriously can’t remember the last time it happened that both my daughter and my husband were gone and it wasn’t because they were giving me alone time to work on our book orRead More ...

We have been attending since the first year it came to LA and are more and more excited every year it comes back. It’s been great to see the success of this book fair and how much it grows each year.

Not only the memories I want for myself now that I am more mature and also a mom, but those I want my girl to have of her Abuela. I have to admit there’s also a feeling of guilt embedded in me for not having outwardly expressed to my mom just how much IRead More ...

A Reassurance of Love

Posted by: | 3 Comments

“Es igualita al papá,” most will say when they meet my daughter and realize that her mischievous expressions, accompanied by a cynical laughter, are almost a complete replica of her dad’s. Much to her papi’s delight, Camila loves to tell and be told a good joke and is already on her way to being a very creative prankster. I, on the other hand, wasn’t born, nor did I ever cultivate, an outwardly funny bone or jokester attitude. I can’t rememberRead More ...
