Have you ever wanted more time in your day but didn’t know where to find it? Try tracking how much time you spend on social media. This summer I deleted Facebook from my phone, and Instagram soon followed. I still maintain my accounts, but I have to be much more deliberate to access them. No […]

Just Play

Ok so I have to ask, am I the only mama who is always afraid her little one is not doing what he/she should be doing at this age? Should they be talking more? Do they need to stop using a pacifier? Should they read at 1 like the kids on that commercial? When will they learn […]

Albuquerque Mom’s Blog :: Introducing Rebecca

Albuquerque  I moved to Albuquerque in 2014 for new beginnings. I had no idea what my new day-to-day routines were going to be or what I was in for, but once I sat in the sunshine looking at the Sandia Mountains, I was in love. Everyday there is something new to see. There’s the Rio […]

Life Is Not a Race

Life is not a race with others or with yourself. It’s a journey to figuring out who you are and experiencing it with the people you love. Before my husband and I got married 13 years ago, we did an intensive premarital counseling course. One of the topics that came up was a really practical […]

I Get Help Cleaning My House

Confession: I get help cleaning my house. Once a month, someone comes to my house and cleans up after my family.  There was a time when I was embarrassed about this. I felt like paying someone else to clean was the easy way out and that I should be able to keep up with things […]
