Dealing with Insecurities (Fragmented Fridays)

Erich-Fromm-quote-about-insecurity-unknownmami.png

Dealing with insecurities lately. I’m so wrapped up in myself that any little thing makes me feel insecure: an innocent comment left on this blog by a regular reader and commenter, an off-handed remark by Unknown Papi, the wording of an email from an old friend. I’m reading way more into everything than necessary. Maybe […] Read the full article →

Life Imitating Art

Campbells-Soup-Can-Andy-Warhol-unknownmami.jpg

My mother-in-law sends us care packages quite often. A recent one included a can of Campbell’s soup labeled like an Andy Warhol depiction of a can of Campbell’s soup.

When I found out that Walgreens was launching a Balance Rewards and Loyalty Card program that I could use in conjunction with the free Walgreens […] Read the full article →

Everyday Make-up in 6 Easy Steps

The older I get, the less make-up I wear and it’s not because I’m too lazy to wear it or because I don’t like it. I love make-up. I use it to enhance my attributes, not to hide my perceived flaws. I can do everyday make-up in 6 easy steps. You could say that when […] Read the full article →

Wipes Should be Wet, Diapers Should Keep Me Dry #HuggiesLatino

Reflecting on the teleconference I participated in with Poncho de Anda, I have to laugh at myself because if you would have told me in my early 20’s or even early 30’s that I would enjoy a conversation about parenting that veers into talking about diapers and wipes, I would have told you, you were […] Read the full article →

Questions (Fragmented Fridays)

Questions-unknownmami.png

Is there such a thing as clean coal? I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around that concept. I wanted to share Jimmy Kimmel’s most recent prank challenge about getting kids horrible back to school outfits, but the video has been pulled from Hulu and Youtube. Why? What happened to my brain? I used […] Read the full article →

What Are You Waiting For?

002.jpg

    There must have been a time when this bench waited expectantly. Waited for someone to come and sit awhile. Waited for impatient children to wiggle and giggle. Waited for lovers to snuggle and kiss. Waited for tired men down on their luck to lay and rest. Those days are gone. The bench got […] Read the full article →
