We want you to meet a gorgeous mama from sunny San Diego. Rubi is a mama to adventurous and totally adorable JJ, a current Brand Ambassador, and she's a virtual assistant and pastime Police Dispatcher! We can't wait for you to get to know her more.
Favorite mommy/maternity product:
I could not have survived pregnancy without my body pillow, I don’t know how any pregnant woman can sleep without one!
Favorite baby product:
Aside from everything Parker Baby Co., I absolutely love our Wild Bird Sling carrier.
Favorite way to have a little “me-time”:
If I’m being honest I struggle to have some “me-time”. I still get awful separation anxiety and can’t help but think of everything that needs to be done. My goal for “me-time” is to get back into hiking this season. ☺️ I do take the occasional solo Target trip and buy out the dollar spot! Does that count?
A couple more questions...
What traditions or activities are you most excited to do with JJ this Fall?
I am beyond excited to take JJ to his first pumpkin patch! Disneyland in the fall is also our favorite and it’s so great to get to experience it through his little eyes.
What is the first thing you do when you put JJ down for sleep?
After putting JJ down to sleep most days, I clean up the house and catch up on work and social media. The best days are when hubby is home and we get to snuggle, eat all the snacks, and I try to have deep conversations while he tries to watch football. 😅
Can you tell us your favorite way to spend quality time with your husband with a little one at home?
As much as I love rewatching shows on Netflix and sharing all the late night snacks, I always feel most connected when we are tackling house projects and dreaming up goals for our future.
Enjoy the time with your babies. I hear the phrase “oh, just wait until he’s ___ “ (crawling, walking, talking, etc.) you fill in the blank. Seems like people are always warning you about all the firsts that are to come but fail to prepare you for all the lasts. As overwhelming as that newborn stage and even those first few months may be, they don’t last forever. Before you know they won’t be needing you to hold them all day, they’ll prefer food over your boobs, they will be sleeping in their own room instead of yours and you’ll be chasing after them for snuggles. So really enjoy the now, the dishes can wait another day! Also, don’t be ashamed to ask for help. No one can do it all. You’ve got this mama!
