We are so thrilled to introduce our new contributor, Jessica, to our CCMB Readers!
Hola, fellow mommas! I’m Jessica, my friends call me Jess. I was born in Kingsville, Texas and grew up in the Sparkling City by the Sea, Corpus Christi. I love living in Corpus with the ocean view and the easy-going people: what’s not to love? People are always willing to lend a helping hand. If you know where to look you can always find a new favorite spot to chill or for the kids run around. Not mention we are the hometown of Fiesta de La Flor! I met my husband here in Corpus Christi and together we have a growing network of friends and family throughout South Texas. I love calling Corpus Christi home.
I know not every mom is the same, we are all different and that is what makes us special. I always wanted to be a mom. I didn’t realize how exciting and scary it would be until my daughter came along. I’ve said this before, but motherhood made me appreciate my own mother so much more. My daughter, Angelina, is soon to be 6 in August, and she is a character. She’s a brilliant combination of mommy and daddy: a big heart and a sassy smile. Right now, she’s curious about the world and I want to make sure she soaks up all the knowledge she can. She teaches me just as much as I teach her. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her. Growing up I lived in a house full of women and it taught me a lot about motherhood, over the years I’ve gained much experience from the wonderful women in my life. I grew up loving kids, I even worked at a few daycares and when friends needed me I helped take care of their children. It comes like second nature to me being maternal and having an open heart for all the kiddos I’ve taken care of over the years.
I have been in love with writing most of my life. I write poetry, stories and now trying my hand at blogging. I know a lot of moms who could always benefit from another mom’s wisdom. It’s good to have a mom tribe that you can turn to when you need help or advice. I look forward to getting back to school soon and finishing my English degree I’ve been working on. I love to read, write, watch movies, listen to music and of course get in a girl’s night when possible. My family is big on two things wrestling and football, we are major Dallas Cowboys fans. I look forward to sharing mine and my family’s crazy life with you, learning from and listening to all the CCMB community of mommas.
