We are so happy to introduce you to another mama all the way from Puerto Rico. Paty Cabrera has the most beautiful Instagram feed filled with dreamy images of her and her insanely handsome little boy. You are going to love this Puerto Rican mama!
Tell us about your family.
I live in Puerto Rico with my husband and our son Paulo Gabriel. We are just a normal family who love days at the beach, going to the movies, out for dinner, ice cream and most of all love each other so much!
Recently I joined the photography business, I’ve always loved it but it was until 8 months ago that I decided to make it public. I consider myself shy, so for me this was a challenge and it has been a wonderful one. Also I’m in the process of starting a clothing line for little ones.
What inspires you?
My son inspires me everyday to be a better person. It may sound corny but life just feels different now that he is in my life. I see everything in a whole new perspective and he has made me so much stronger, to let fears aside and find myself.
How would you describe the typical Puerto Rican mama?
Puerto Rican mamas are extremely happy, loud, and full of life. We are intense, this means expect a whole lot of kisses and hugs like, every minute. Most of us will likely have our kids look on point even if it means we are going to do groceries. But the most important thing is that we have so much love to give, we welcome everyone into our lives like we know you since forever. Puerto Rican mamas have wonderful hearts!
You will probably find me watching a movie, or having quality time with my friends and family.
What don’t most people know about you?
Most people don’t know that I’m so shy it has made me postpone many plans. Since my mom died when I was 12, I kind of lost myself and it wasn’t until I had Paulo that I started feeling like me again. He has been a blessing in so many ways.
Do you have any mother role models that you look up to?
My mom will always be my biggest role modeI. I definitely admire all those moms who are struggling and making things happen for them and their babes. It’s amazing to see how mothers are thriving and letting it all out there.
What do you and your family enjoy doing on the weekend?
On the weekends we probably will do things to enjoy as a family. Beach, parks, movies, stay at home, or even do errands as long as we are together. My husband works all week so weekends are important to us!
What is the best and worst part about motherhood?
The worst thing about motherhood for me is the constant worry of not being there when he needs me or just thinking something bad may happen to him. I hate having thoughts like that. But the absolute best is everything else. Nothing in this world will ever compare to how amazing it feels to have a baby. My heart feels so full and I can’t wait to have more!
