No, This Baby Wasn’t “Planned” :: Answering That Awkward Question

When my first baby was just eight months old, I found out I was pregnant. Again. As soon as I saw those two little pink lines, I went from being eight months postpartum to six weeks pregnant. Our babies would be 15 months apart–one year, three months, and 15 days to be exact. My first thought? Skinny jeans. My pre-pregnancy clothes were just starting to […]

Albuquerque Moms Blog :: Introducing Mandie Segura

I never intended to live here this long, but here I am, almost 11 years later, and I love it.  There’s so much to love about Albuquerque–the mostly mild winters! Frequent […]
