Modern Mami: My Beautiful Baby Shower! (PHOTOS)
By Kristina Guerrero | 06/27/2013 - 14:04

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: 10 Ways My Baby Will Be Raised With Latino Culture
By Kristina Guerrero | 04/05/2013 - 16:38

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. My husband Gibby and I compiled a list of the cultural things we want to pass on to our little Vato L

Modern Mami: 'Pregnancy Brain' Is a Real Thing (And It's Serious!)
By Kristina Guerrero | 03/21/2013 - 14:38

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.
