I’ve had this fire burning inside me to write for quite a while. I’ve read a ton of different blogs, I have Insta-friends that blog, and what I’ve come to realize is that I can connect with certain aspects of their blogs but not all.
Which is totally fine because not everyone is going to be exactly like me but I also believe that there are more mamas out there in the world that have more in common with me than I know, so this is for YOU.
For my Chicana mamas from the bay (or anywhere really) that feel like you haven’t found the blog with the right amount of motherhood and no te dejes mija.
This is for the teen mamas, the mamas who still live at home (ME! No shame), the ones who are 420 friendly yet still feel a little shamed to say it, the ones who went to college and learned from the streets. A safe space for myself and other mamas who will NOT judge you.
None the less, I’m not your average mama, I’m a 26 year old Mexican American and damn proud! I’m nice pero no te pases, I mean the bay raised me so you know I’ll stand up for me and mine whenever necessary. A little ratchet at times but I can’t help it that’s me okurrrrrt.
But here’s the thing I love about blogging, I like the freedom of being transparent, a place where I can completely be me, share MY ideas on parenting, lifestyle, adventure, and whatever other fun stuff comes to mind, this blog is MINE and I can do as I please!
I want to get a little personal and tell you guys a little about myself, aside from being 26 and from the Bay Area, California. I got pregnant right out of high school, I was 18 I had been with my boyfriend for about a year and we clearly were not being too careful. When I realized I was pregnant I was terrified, baffled, and apprehensive! I mean fresh out of high school and starting a family was NOT a part of the plan.
This isn’t how things were supposed to go, I was supposed to finish high school, go to college, get a degree, get engaged, get married, and THEN start a family. But sometimes life just has different plans and I truly believe this is what was in store for me. That doesn’t quite mean that it was all sunshine and flowers from the moment I found out I was pregnant (8 years ago!!) but I definitely feel that I NEEDED Shawn!
Honestly I just hope to connect with other like minded mamas, who are doing their best to raise kind little humans, who want to protect their families and keep them safe and healthy, and who may not have a big support system at home.
I want to have the sense of community that every mama needs. We need to apoyar each other and not tear each other down.
I’m not sure where this blog will lead me in the near future but for now it’s a safe space for me to put my thoughts out into the world, if they get read great! If not, I have my own public journal to look back on later in life when I’m old and wrinkly and yelling at my Viejo!
