How We Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Baby

October is Hispanic Heritage Month. Growing up in Miami, I don’t think I had a full appreciation for my heritage. Everyone in this city is from somewhere else. I probably have at least one friend from each Latin American country. Spanish is spoken everywhere you go here. You can eat tasty food from any Spanish-speaking country you can think of. So I guess I just never realized how special and unique it was to be from another country.

Then, my husband and I moved to North Carolina. It was interesting being in the minority. I started to really acknowledge how important it was to keep our heritage alive. Now that we have kids, it’s even more important to pass down our traditions.

The Story Behind Our Gender Reveal Photos

I knew I always wanted a second child, and that I wanted it to be a boy. What I did not know was when. We had thought about trying for a second child around the time my daughter Naliya was 2 years old, but unfortunately life got in the way, and it was just never the right time. I mean, are you ever really ready for a child, let alone a second child?

With that thought in mind, after having been laid off for a few months and having no luck in the job search, we went for it. My husband and I weren’t getting any younger, and I really wanted to give my daughter a sibling.

Fall is the Perfect Time to Start Family Traditions

I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorite times of year. I love living in a region where the seasons change, the air cools, and leaves undergo a beautiful transformation before piling up on our lawn. It’s also the time when families start thinking about traditions – new and old – as the holidays begin the not-so-slow creep up on us.

Con Fe, Confianza y un poco de Polvo de Hadas Todo se Puede

Me tomó mucho tiempo para averiguar lo que quería ser “cuando sea grande.” De chef pastelero pase entonces a diseñadora de moda, luego maestra, administrador de empresas y, por último, la manejo de hoteles y restaurantes. Mientras más mayor más me alejé de mis sueños y en su lugar concentre en la realidad de las situaciones. Necesitaba dinero, así que necesitaba trabajar, lo que significaba que necesitaba un trabajo. ¿El trabajo tiene beneficios, tiempo de vacaciones, días de enfermedad, días a feriado pagadas, ¿cuáles son las horas, ¿hay espacio para crecimiento o avance. Me obsesione con ganar bien pero nunca hacía nada que amaba.
