The Magdaleno Family
What is your favorite family tradition?
We are a new family so we don't really have any yet. But we are constantly talking about what traditions we want to start as our daughter reaches all of her first holidays and seasons.
Tell us about your favorite family story.
My husband and I had picked our wedding date before we were officially engaged. My family is all out of state so we knew we would need to plan ahead for good ticket prices. I was with them all for Christmas one year without my at the time boyfriend. They decided to look at ticket prices and determined that there was a date in April that would work great. So I called my boyfriend we talked over the phone about our wedding date. It was settled tickets were bought and we didn't even have a ring yet.
What is your family's motto?
Make the time we have together special.
Share Your Parenting Wisdom
What's your number one tip for new parents?
Give yourself grace. Being a parent is the hardest thing I've ever done. But in time it is rewarding. And it's so easy to think you're not doing a good job or not doing enough.
But as long as you are loving your child and taking care of their needs you're doing a fantastic job.
What has been the most surprising thing you've learned as a parent?
I had no idea I would love this baby so much.
Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)
My daughter poops while sitting in her car seat more than anywhere else. Its a joke now if I get somewhere and don't have to change her diaper.
