Mommy Duties - Potty Training AC

Meet Anthony Carter. He's 3, full of energy and life, he's very curious, intuitive and as all 3 year old boys are, he's very daring!  But like I said, he is 3, so we've come to that time in AC's life where it's potty training time and mommy and daddy are on double duty...

 4 million toddlers will embark on potty training each year So when I was asked to participate in the "Madrinas Del Bano" Every Flush Counts campaign by Pull-Ups I thought it was great and right on time!  We have been trying different potty training techniques for the past year, and obviously with no success.  Anthony recently turned 3 and we enrolled him in a montessori school where potty training is something they are also very serious about.  He is learning how to pull his pants up and down and potty in the toilet and this is happening about every 15/20 minutes. *I am the proudest mommy when I pick him up in the same clothes I took him to school in, because that means he is learning to potty and not pee on himself which changes his outfit.
 Oh but when we get home it's a completely different story... I ask him to potty the kicking, crying and stomping usually comes along with it  and becomes discouraging to say the least. 

I've discovered that the Pull Ups facebook page found at  has tons of tips and suggestions for potty training and not just ads focused on selling a product. A great thing about this campaign is that it motivates mothers not to give up! I As a new mom, I am starting to believe the myth that girls learn faster than boys, especially when the tantrums come into play.  I will not give up trying though....Diapers are expensive and honestly I am tired of changing them lol

So this is the plan:

We (daddy and I) will reward and do all we can to get Anthony to sit on his potty and do the do. We are also encouraging our family to help with the efforts and milestone achievements. There will be a reward after every flush, we will clap, sing and we will encourage! It's a party, It's a party! 
We have stickers, lollipops and visits to Chuck-E-Cheese as rewards! ( yes we will even bribe)

I'll keep you guys posted on Anthony's milestones and how we are progressing at potty training soon so for now watch this video and learn more about Pull -Ups :)

Why did Pull-Ups create Every Flush?

For Hispanic moms, dads and toddlers everywhere, starting and continuing potty training, every flush is a big deal, signifying the beginning of the transition from baby to Big Kid®. These days, parents are celebrating all of life’s milestones with their kids, both big and small, and potty training shouldn’t be an exception. That’s why the Pull-Ups brand believes that every try deserves a little celebration. Read more about it

This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pull Ups. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.

But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!

And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Meeting with Romeo Santos...So Nasty

I love music and as most of us do, we also have our favorites. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite musicians, Romeo Santos of the mega latin group Aventura while he was in Houston promoting his dvd release for "The King Stays King" a concert dvd from where he  sold out at Madison Square Garden for about 3 nights consecutively. He's like the male version of J.Lo, that hard to get close to. 

There must have been over 2k people in line waiting to get an autograph, catch a glimpse, a smile, and if lucky a hug from this latino heartthrob.... luckily I didn't have to wait in a line. I got a smile, a hug and we spoke and laughed about some of his previous work and very first cd. I was waiting on him while he met other fans for a private meet and greet the radio hosted and honestly I don't know how he does it...I was laughing the whole time, at the requests some of the fans were making, than at the replies the management would give. His management took car…
