Lo extraño Lo extraño con dulzura Veo su transformación y me sorprende ¡Qué rápido!   Ahora me mira diferente Siento que hay algo de sabiduría Cosas que puede ver   Y me aconseja Me extiende la mano y no tengo que ñangotarme Somos iguales Al mismo nivel   Me enorgullece Sé que será grande Porque ya es grande Sabe cosas,…


Why Being Pro-Choice Means Being Pro-Life

Well today I read an article about abortion rights. It seems that it's still a rather controversial issue and so I've decided to speak my mind about it. The argument against abortion is always about the lives of the children and the argument for it is about the lives of the mothers. But the truth is that the argument can…

A Tip of the Hat to Surrogacy

Today begins a new stage in life for a special couple I hold dear to my heart. One of them is a friend from grade school (enough said). And today they became daddies thanks to surrogacy. I've had the pleasure of seeing their process through Facebook and well, what can I say, I'm impressed! I think surrogacy is admirable. Pregnancy…

Why I Write – Blog Hopped Edition

I was recently bloghopped by an amazing author: JD Estrada. I met JD at the recent Puerto Rico Comic Con 2015 and got myself a signed copy of one amazing ride (Only Human) that I have yet to finish, but promise to tell (without spoilers) when I’m done. For now, I’ll leave you with one thought: Thank God I’m Only…


Nobody crawls anyway

Recently I read an article about a new book coming out called "Slow Parenting". Slow parenting is about letting kids be and grow at their own pace. It's about not rushing their developmental milestones and forgetting the timeline printed in books. I discovered this on my own with my second child.

Complicated X4

That's what my mother predicted. Yup. The Queen Mother had it right. Of course, she spoke from experience. She said a second child would complicate things, not x2, but x4.

Book Blog for Kids

I've been thinking of blogging my book. It's a fantasy mid grade novel. However, I'm not sure if it will reach the right audience, since most 8 - 12 year olds aren't freely searching the net and following blogs. What do you guys think? It would be a brand new blog. 1 chapter a week perhaps... FYI:  There are fairies,…


First Flight

  The baby birds have flown! Recently I posted about a mother bird who had nested in my flower box. In my last post, the baby birds were already full feathered, but still had not flown. I had mentioned how the mother had been cooing at them from the floor and that I thought she was trying to encourage flight. Well,…
