It’s always a beautiful thing when one cool mama leads to another. Which was precisely the case when one of our recent subjects—Miami-based mom Celia D. Luna—listed today’s subject, Perla Farias, as one of her so-called “mom icons.” After checking out Perla’s inspiring Insta-feed (@xicana_mama) and her Chicana Mama blog, we knew we had to have this inspiring, activist-minded mother of four on the site, too. Much to our luck, Perla agreed to share her story with us, which includes living in a multi-generational household that was recently struck by COVID-19 (thankfully, all eight of the afflicted family members have recovered). Below, this busy mama takes us through her “Day in the Life”—from story time to FaceTime, laundry to pizza-making—all while discussing her current “new normal” and hopes for a better future ahead.
