Also, I wasn’t sure how I would deal with the issue of honesty. I mean, I keep a journal or I used to before the baby, and I’m pretty honest because it’s for no one but me. But if I am writing in a public forum, how honest can I be? I was afraid I would worry too much about my loved and not so loved ones reading it and being upset. Then I had an image of the “Unknown Comic” on ” The Gong Show” and I thought, “that’s it! I’ll be the Unknown Mami!”
Why Mami? Because I became a mother a little over 7 months ago. Mami, instead of Mommy because I was raised by a single Mexican mother and grew up speaking Spanish before English. Now, I’m trying to raise a bilingual child and I’m the only Spanish speaker in the house. Not to mention that my Spanish is turning to mierda!
Other things you should know about me: I live in San Francisco, I’m an actor, I’m shy (but you wouldn’t know it), more to come later.
That’s all for now…It’s time for Put Pie’s (my daughter) nap.
