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.

Baby Bean arrives in just a few months and as a first time momma, I’ve got a lot of questions. Luckily, I have a vast support group that I can turn to when I need advice. How many bottles do I need to buy? What kind of stroller should I get? Do I need a bassinet or just a crib?

I love that we live in a melting pot of cultures; white, black, brown, orange (I live in LA, so I’ve seen ‘orange’ people) — so many different kinds of people and we can’t wait to expose Baby Bean to all of it. But before we introduce him to sushi and Rosh Hashanah, we want him to be proud of his strong Mexican roots.

Well this is adorable! Target, yes the store you go to for towels and end up leaving with a potted plant and slip-n-slide, has launched a new baby ad campaign. With the tagline "The Adventure Begins Here," the ad features real familes and encourages celebrating those everyday parenting adventures -- from a successful swaddle to a splashy bath time.
Set to the lullaby "Clap Your Hands," sung by 16-year-old Paulina Cerrilla from Season 3 of The Voice, the ad is the first of its kind for target, as it's bilingual! The song features both English and Spanish lyrics.

I like to think of myself as a smart girl. I did well in high school and then went on to receive academic scholarships to attend the University of Southern California, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Sure, my career consists of being on top of Justin Bieber’s latest mishaps and Taylor Swift’s newest boy-toy conquests, but I insist on balancing out the fluff by keeping up to date on world issues and current events.
