Episode 51: Growing Together as Parents: A conversation with my husband, Alejandro Cuevas

I’m thrilled to invite you to a more intimate space of ours. My husband of 10 years, Alejandro, or Alex and I will talk openly about our journey as parents, partners, and individuals. I shared on my Instagram stories with my followers if they had any questions about us and our marriage, our relationship, and especially as parents and how parenthood is going with us.

Because if you have not known this about us, we have been in a relationship for such a long time! Although we’ve been married for 10 years, Alex and I have been together for 20 years! Yep, you heard that right, since we were 14!

I’ve been wanting to do a podcast episode like this for such a long time but since I will be closing out Season 2 of the Viva la Mami podcast, I thought it would be a great way to close the season in this way!

Ya’ll 2023 was HARD! And it was the most challenging year as parents and as a couple, transitioning from a family of 3 to 4, quitting my 9-5 job after maternity leave, selling our house in the suburbs and living temporarily at my parent’s house before moving to Chicago to house hack at our investment property. This all happened all while I was trying to grow a business and put myself out there! 2023 really tested us and it was very hard.

We will dive into the raw realities of parenting, the turbulence of having two little ones, and the changes it has brought to our lives. In this open and heartfelt discussion, we not only share our experiences but also answer some of your interesting questions. So sit back, relax, and get ready for an insightful heart-to-heart conversation like no other. Ahora, let’s jump into the episode!

In This Episode You’ll Hear:

  • How our marriage has evolved after becoming parents.
  • The impact of parenting and personal identity.
  • The struggles and joys of raising two kids.
  • The importance of checking in with each other.
