September Project – Nursery – Part 2: The Popcorn fiasco

September 12, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

As I described in my previous September Project post (the plan), the first step in the Nursery project was to repaint the popcorn ceiling in white as well as painting all the walls in a cream color. By doing that we would no longer have a “half-painted” room with some walls painted in purple and others painted in cream. We would also cover some stains and patches from the previous owner. In order for me [Continue Reading…]

Meet the Community Members…

September 8, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

I recently got really excited with the idea of joining a local Moms Community Forum. The excitement was mainly caused by two reasons: I would have the chance to meet new moms close to my area and (maybe) find a good “tribe” of moms to connect with, get together, share similar experiences/anecdotes and have a good time and secondly, because I would have the chance to (hopefully) do some good networking that would help me [Continue Reading…]

Why do I blog?

September 5, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

A couple of days ago I had a conversation with my husband about one of the posts that I had recently published. In that post I was openly talking about my maternity leave and my desire about not coming back to work any time soon. My husband mentioned that he really liked it BUT (dangerous word) he was concerned that someone from work could read it and then I would get in trouble for being [Continue Reading…]

September Project – Nursery – Part 1: The Plan

September 1, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

For those of you that still don’t know me, I’m a person that loves staying busy, extremely busy sometimes, so I have a never-ending list of pending/future projects that I work on over time on top of my 24×7 mommy job with my 3-month old baby and my full time job at the office (although I’m currently on maternity leave). Don’t get me wrong, I can also enjoy a good lazy weekend but it’s not [Continue Reading…]

Breastfeeding is NOT Erotic

August 31, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

When it comes to my blog I usually try to follow a schedule so I only write twice a week (keep in mind that I have a 3 months old baby that I need to take care of and enjoy with!). However, I have something in my chest that I have to put out there because I’m so upset that I’m about to lose it! Rant mode ON: Yesterday I was looking for an image [Continue Reading…]

Prenatal Classes in Calgary

Prenatal Classes in Calgary – Part 1 (Free Classes)

August 25, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

One of the best decisions that I made during my pregnancy was to attend to prenatal classes. I have a lot of friends that believe that they are expensive and therefore a waste of time and money. However, luckily in Alberta we have some free classes for first time parents so you can try them without paying a dime! The online website for the classes can be found here. As you can see there, in [Continue Reading…]

Completely exhausted

Mums are baby fueled

August 22, 2016 TheSpanishMom 4

2.03 am in the morning and I wake up because I hear my little munchkin crying in his bassinet right beside my bed. I know he is hungry so without hesitation I jump out of bed and start the feeding and changing diaper routine. By the time that I am done it will be around 3 or 3.30 am and I know that you have to pump immediately if I want to improve my insufficient [Continue Reading…]

Back to work

Back to work and other horror stories

August 20, 2016 TheSpanishMom 2

I was right now looking at my little munchkin and thinking “I can’t believe it’s been three months already“. And yes, time flies and it flies extremely fast. While it is awesome to see the little one growing and developing his new skills over time, it is scary and overwhelming seeing how quick everything is going and how close I am getting to the end of my maternity leave. And to be honest, just the [Continue Reading…]

Take the posts with a grain of salt

August 18, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

The first urge when you know that you are pregnant is to start googling and reading absolutely everything related to pregnancy and labor (or at least that was my case). Internet is a great resource and it has tons of information to offer, specially related to a topic that popular. There’s plenty of blogs and websites that try to stick to the facts and are definitely a good source of information but there are others [Continue Reading…]
