Of parenting & other adventures...

One mental health counselor I interviewed recently declared that parenting is the most important job in the world and the least we are prepared to execute.

Mamiverse is a relatively new site that seeks to create a space where Latina mothers (and fathers) can come together and find stories from their unique Latino universe. Everything from money to health, recipes, fitness, career, wellness and style is discussed, with a Latin twist. They have a slew of amazing columnists and I'm thrilled to be among them.
