Mama Wants To Brag

I was recently part of a twitter discussion hosted by MomsLA in which the following question was asked: Are moms allowed to brag about their children?  Absolutely! When something your child does falls into perfect place with the Universe, it serves as a reminder that you are in the right place.

Maia wrote this for her English class. Enjoy!

Featured Post: Bragging Rights!

I got my first featured post on Moms LA.  It is titled "The Power of The Pussy: Why Words Matter".

Since it is my first featured post, I figured I have bragging rights. Enjoy the article.

Musica Monday: Whitney Houston R.I.P.

You wonder if there is any truth when they say people go in 3's.  Don Cornelisu, Etta James and Whitney Houston.

It is easy to get caught up on the drama of how she died or how she had addictions.  How important is that really?  Instead, I will remember the great songs she released and how she made Kevin Costner look good in the BodyGuard.

So for today's Musica Monday, the dedication is to Whitney.

Wordless Wednesday

Sorry to post this late in the day.  I spent the morning with Gael in his classroom.  Ahh, the joys of pre-k.  We then went off to La Monarca bakery to have some "pan". He had milk and I had their delicious coffee.

Musica Monday: Not an ordinary lullaby


As you know, I love music.  I love to play different genres of music in my home.  All that sounds good is welcome.

When my first daughter Maia was born, I had a collection of lullaby cd's in English and Spanish.  I would play these for her during the day but at night, the last song she would listen to and me attempt to sing was Mana's song "Cachito."  It has a lullaby effect and the lyrics are beautiful.

     "...un adicto de tu sol. Y es que, un solo un cachito, un pedacito de tu luz."

So my song for Musica Monday is this song dedicated to my daughter Maia.

What is your lullaby?

Happy Musica Monday mi gente!
