Good Bye, Nevada.

Today is Nevada Day, did you know? Today, this state in which we’ve lived for almost ten years turns 150 years old. As a state holiday, the kids have the day off from school. My bank is closed.

Alina successfully completed her first year of preschool and I cannot be more proud of her. However, we’ve already begun preparing for Pre-K, which is sure to be an exciting time in her education.

Alina’s First AYSO Soccer Season! I cannot tell you how excited and happy we are to watch our little girl enjoy her first season of AYSO soccer. This is a moment in our parenting legacy that both D and I have been anxiously awaiting. She’s on our region’s Under 5 team, which means they meet only once a week for an hour. The first 30 minutes is a practice, while

Love Letter to My 4 Year Old And A Legacy I’m Proud Of

I’ve been writing love letters to my daughter for almost three years now. I started De Su Mama shortly after Alina turned a year old. At that point, I had no idea how the incredible parenting adventure I’d be taken on would change my life. I had no idea how much I’d fall in love. As a baby, I was desperate to protect her. As a toddler, I was challenged
