Today we are taking a peek into a day in the life of Lydia María Lauer, the Portland-based mama of one, global brand creative narrative director for Nike Women, and founder of Making La Madre, a site she started nearly six years ago to document her many thoughts as she was unexpectedly entering motherhood. Like so many of us, Lydia has been adjusting to WFH life, and learning new ways to connect socially when backyard BBQ’s are out of the question. We loved catching back up with this down-to-earth mama, who has previously shared with MOTHER her experience of teaching her son Mario about privilege from an early age. Now she invites us into her home and shares what a typical day looks like, nearly 2 months into lockdown with a 5-year-old and two parents working full-time. Click through the slideshow below to spend the day with her!
