The Power and Wisdom of the Older Woman

I’ve come to believe that there is some one missing from my life. That someone is a wiser, older woman. A woman who has raised her kids, but who can still remember the days of waking up in the middle of the night to feed an infant. The tired, lonely days of having a newborn. […]

Making New Friends the Old-Fashioned Way

Have you ever felt like your life needed a few more friends in it? Several years ago my best friend began a full time job, and I was a stay-at-home mom with two kids.  I needed some day-to-day mom interaction. Instead of waiting and hoping another best friend would fall out of the sky and fall […]

Albuquerque Moms Blog :: Introducing Mandie Segura

Albuquerque I moved to Albuquerque two weeks after I married my husband, an Albuquerque native, and never imagined that I’d become a mom here. 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 […]

How to Be a Friend to an Autism Spectrum Mom

We all need friends who get us. But developing strong friendships during the season of motherhood is a task that even mothers of neurotypical children struggle with.

Superbowl Queso

It’s a sad reality for us Albuquerque residents that we don’t have any professional sports teams. I think this requires us to put in a little extra effort to make our Superbowl parties the most fun . . . with some queso, of course! We may be too small for an NFL franchise, but if […]

Mom Mentorship

Many others have written about having mom friends. Certainly, having those mommies who are also in the trenches of diapers and sippy cups is so important, but have you considered the value of mom friends of all ages and stages?

I Joined a MOMS Club and I Liked It – Actually, LOVED It!

When my daughter hit her first birthday, it was like a switch flipped. A lot seemed to change right around the year mark. She decided she was done nursing, began walking, dropped the morning nap, etc. As she continued to become more active, we were really itching for something more to do with our days. We had […]

The Heart of Hospitality: Making Hosting a Joy

For me, hospitality is a joy. I like having people over, throwing showers and hosting bible studies. It’s a part of my love language. And in this season of my life, it is actually easier than going somewhere. But that’s not true for everyone. We all have different strengths, and joyfully opening your home to […]
