Bianca Barela  We each get to choose our own adventure, how rad is that? #SanFrancisco #SantaFe #inthedesert #bythebay

Valencia is strong and brave. I strive everyday to be better, in the hopes that I'll be someone she can look up to. #valenciajoy⚡️

Had our first nanny test run today, on top of the heat and humidity and my dairy-free, caffeine-free, for the sake of the baby's sleep diet, I deserve all these things. 🍩🍷🍦🍓#momming

Broke out my drawing skillz during tonight's Women of Words writing group warm up. I sometimes lose sight of how important it is to play, so I appreciate it when others remind me. Red wine helps too 🍷 Also, hearing Valencia laugh in her sleep. I can't remember what the point of this post was. It's the small things I think, that help keep my anxiety subdued and ground me in all the goodness around me ✨

Sophie's trying out a new look. #sophiethegiraffe

Like my prima tells me, she comes from a long line of chingonas.

Listening to Atmosphere and sharing my self-help addiction with V. She clearly has charisma on lock, so she agreed to help me practice my skills. .

What a wonderful two months it's been. #valenciajoy⚡️ @lettersandliquor

My pregnant-self had the foresight to plan date night for my non-pregnant self and my hot husband 8 months in advance. Thank you, pregnant-self. What an epic first date night after baby. #hamiltonmusical

Tonight I did my hair and put real pants on and then I left my littlest love with my mother-in-law. It was my first time leaving her with anyone other than my husband. I had to work to keep my anxiety in check the whole train ride downtown. I left to attend a women's writing group. I almost didn't go. We started the meeting by introducing ourselves and saying what we are using I statements like, "I'm a poet." I said, "I'm a writer and a mother." A mantra I've been repeating to myself since I lost my first child, Everest, in 2015. After our introductions I opened up my notebook and found this reminder, written to myself a month ago. I've read that repetition is good for a baby's mind, it seems the same is true for adults. I am a mother and I am a writer and I'm grateful that I have a support system that helps me embrace both. I'm glad I went tonight. .

Read this YA novel yesterday. Each chapter is narrated by a different character. Sad touching story about seven brothers: three sets of twins and their smallest youngest brother. I shed a few tears reading about how much they loved each other. #youngadultbooks #currentlyreading #bookstagram #thepulloftheocean #bookworm #bibliophile .

Side note: I found this book at the free outdoor library at the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley last year. I'm glad I finally read it! #bayareabookfestival
