So what’s with the name? I wanted to dedicate a post to why I named this space A Little Too Loud.
You see, all my life people have been telling me I’m too much – too opinionated, too honest, too argumentative (lawyer here!) too friendly, too messy, too American, too Latin, TMI, the list goes on and on…
As as kid I didn’t care AT ALL, I was always my regular too-much self and didn’t think twice about it (aren’t kids amazing in this way?! oh to be young and care free.. ) but as I grew up I found myself toning down who I was in order to be less noticeable, to fit in better..
Is it because I’m a girl and society tells us it’s not OK to be too-much? Is it because I’m Latin living in the US and (especially in the current political climate!) blending in is easier than standing out? I honestly have no friggin’ clue and your guess is as good as mine.. Any #amateurpsychologists out there-be my guests! The point of this rambling story- if there is one- is that naming this space A Little Too Loud is my way of owning all of my too-muchness, and toning it down no more (except at church and yoga- I mean.. )
I want this space to feel accepting, encouraging and HONEST! I want to make you feel like you can be YOU, however “loud” that is.. There’s ALL kinds of ways to be a Mom and my goal is to give you confidence that YOUR WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY FOR YOU, and that’s ALL that really matters! Well, that and laughing at yourself.. you can never do too much of that in my book, clearly.
