Episode 11: VLM Spotlight: A Stay-at-Home Mami with Amanda Santiago

In this Viva la Mami Spotlight episode, we welcome Amanda Santiago, who is a working professional turned stay-at-home mom. Amanda shares why she decided to be a stay at home mami, how she structures her day-to-day life, and how she practices self-care. 

As someone who currently has a 9-5 job juggling the demands of being a working individual and mami, talking to Amanda gave me perspective about what stay at home mamis do. To my surprise, there are so many similarities Amanda and I experience, especially when it comes to making sacrifices as a mami. We had a wonderful conversation and discussed how to break the comparison battle between stay-at-home moms and working moms. There are many misconceptions about stay-at-home mamis, that Amanda supports & encourages other Latina SAHMs through her social media platform @a.mama.drama.

When she’s not mommy’ing or supporting moms, you can almost always catch her binging a show or watching a movie. She lives in Chicago with her husband of 13 years & 2 boys.

It was a pleasure having Amanda with me and I hope you enjoy this VLM Spotlight!
