Amé ser parte de este proyecto…no se imaginan la gran emoción que sentí al verlo ya publicado!! Felicitaciones a la revista Española El Magacín por el homenaje a Cervantes, les quedo fenomenal!!! Y aplausos a los creadores y a los participantes por esta iniciativa mundial tan especial! ahora lo comparto con el resto del mundo!!
During the summer days a fun way to spend your afternoon with friends (with kids) specially if they are visiting from out of town is to enjoy Central Park, and while at it pay a visit to the famous Victoria Gardens. This fun amusement park is especially wonderful for younger children. Our group had 4-8yrs old kids and they had a total blast! The rides are contained in a small enclosed space so you don’t have to worry about kids wandering off like at Coney Island, and there’s little walking between attractions. Most of the rides are gentle (a few have height requirements), and there aren’t any teens rushing through the crowd. Plus, you can’t beat the location at Wollman Rink in Central Park, just steps from the zoo, Heckscher Playground and the famous Central Park carousel. They also have a cash foodcourt and a couple fun food karts for the kids to snack on.
Súper emocionada por haber sido invitada a colaborar con la revista Española El Magacín en el #proyectoelmagacin. Este año se cumple el 400 aniversario de la muerte de Miguel de Cervantes, y para celebrarlo me han invitado a participar en un evento mundial para internautas en español. El Magacín a juntado a 33 de personas de todo el planeta para formar la primera frase del Quijote:
Earlier today [at the park] as I sat on the bench watching my six year old glide through the monkey bars over and over… a mom came over and sat next to me. All of the sudden, I heard her burst into tears… My reaction was to ask if she was ok?!? She did not answer ( and she hid inside her scarf) I didn’t know what to do! I paused for a second and thought… should I run away?!?! But then… what if she really needed help… so I sat and waited … Then I asked again if I could help or do something?? .. As she came out off under her scarf and with tears in her eyes she asked me if I was a mom? [ I nodded] Her daughter was 2… And she was exhausted! I have not slept in two years, she said…. Will I ever get my body back? She asked … Will I ever be able to hold a normal conversation that is not about playdates and diapers? Will I ever feel sexual again? Sometimes, I secretly wish I could go back to work to my fabulous office! I love my child but I need my adult life back and everyone makes me feel so guilty about it! She said [as she wept] For the first time I just stayed quite and listened… I just wanted to hug her and tell her everything was going to be ok… But then my son fell off the monkey bar and I had to run to him… He was ok… but when I turned back “Exhausted Mom” was gone… So I decided to write her this note…
