Modern Mami: Babymoon! All Aboard!

Whoever invented the ‘babymoon’ is genius. I don’t care of some people think it’s just another made up excuse for a vacation. HA! Like I need an excuse for a vacation. It’s been 8 long months of pregnancy and a little treat for my husband and me is exactly what we needed.

First, we skipped the plane ride. That knocked off a couple hundred bucks and used the extra money towards a nicer place to stay. Granted, I live in Southern California so there are so many amazing vacation destinations for me to go in a 100-mile radius.

Modern Mami: Daddy Dearest!

The husband recently told me that he wanted to buy a motorcycle.  A motorcycle?  What?  Are you crazy or something?  We’re having our first child.  A motorcycle hardly seems appropriate and besides, when has he ever wanted a motorcycle?  I worried.  Was this some sort of midlife crisis? 

Nope.  It was much simpler than that.  It was a calculated ploy.  Ask for something major so that when he asked for what he ‘really’ wanted, it wouldn’t seem so bad.

Modern Mami: The Panic Sets In

Congrats to my E! sister Kim Kardashian who, unless you’ve been living under a rock, had her baby two weeks ago.  Two weeks ago, which was five weeks before she was actually due!

Panic sets in!

Of course I always knew that there would be a possibility that Baby Bean might decide to come early but now that I’m in the home stretch, ‘early’ is any time between now and his due date! 

Argggghhhhh!

Cue the circus music because that’s the beat I’m going to these days.

Modern Mami: My Beautiful Baby Shower! (PHOTOS)

Baby showers are awesome! There.  I said it.  I was torn. I felt a little guilty registering for gifts knowing that I was essentially asking my friends and family to buy me things. I was like a kid writing to Santa Claus

Dear Santa,

Please buy me a stroller. It’s black and silver. It costs 100 dollars. Also, I know it’s expensive but a breast pump would be great, too. I’ve made buying me gifts easy. I’m registered at Babies"R"Us. I promise to be good for the rest of the year.

Modern Mami: The Baby Registry Black Hole

I began my baby registry and had to put it away after the first fifteen minutes because I was so overwhelmed. The opposite happened the next time I logged on to start my registry—I was sucked into this black hole of baby gear and it took me 7 hours to find my way out!

Modern Mami: The Baby Name Game

I thought naming Baby Bean was going to be the fun part. I’ve had the perfect baby names up my sleeve even before I knew I wanted babies. When it was time to put them on the table, I came up empty.

The pressure of a name!

Modern Mami: I'm Having A Bummy Day (And Other Pregnancy Woes)

Is it okay that I have a bummy day? Is it okay that I admit my back hurts, I really miss eating sushi, and I don’t like that my dimples have moved from my face to my butt? Is it okay that the next person to tell me that I look like I’m about to ‘pop’ should watch out because I might have to ‘pop’ them in the face? Is it okay that when my husband tells me I look beautiful, I cry and tell him he’s lying?

Modern Mami: 10 Reasons Why I Love Being Pregnant!

My mom, a lady who gave birth to five kids and knows a thing or two about pregnancy, once told me that she loved being pregnant. I could certainly understand her love for her unborn children but loving being pregnant? 

I didn’t buy it.

“Mom, you looooooved being pregnant?” which was less of a question and more of an accusation that she was obviously lying to me. Really?? Gaining weight, stretch marks, waddling, aches, pains — the very look of pregnancy seemed uncomfortable to me.
