I think as a Latina mother, traditionally, we are brought up to be "super" moms and dedicated wives. The family pressure to keep a clean home, raise well-mannered children (minus the dirt uunder the fingernails) and be fabulous cooks can be a little overwhelming. I've been blessed with a mother who is not overbearing with criticism, but til this day she has yet to eat a meal i cook, cuz well, she's the cook of the family. I'm raising 3 beautiful girls, and although I want to pass down certain family traditions (like making coquito & pasteles for xmas) i certainly dont want them to feel like i wouldnt enjoy a meal in their home.
And its a whole other story sharing parenthood with a Latino...lol
I started my "Organized Chaos" community to unite women in the struggle for order in their home. (FEEL FREE TO JOIN!) But i'm curious to hear the challenges that Latina women specifically face. Please share :)
