About


Hey there! I’m Gladys. Born and raised in sunny southern California. Married to my college sweetheart, Rey, and mamá to dos nenas, Mia and Lexi. The Mother Overload is a lifestyle blog that speaks to all things motherhood, style on a budget, healthy recipes as well as glimpses into our bilingual parenting journey.

You can find us hanging out at Disneyland, our local beaches, visiting family and friends or planning our next family adventure.

We hope you enjoy this little corner of ours as much we enjoy sharing it all with you. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive alerts on future giveaways, deals, recipes and cute free printables.

Abrazos (Hugs) — Gladys

  • 🎂Tres añitos! 😭Pass me the box of tissues!!Three year’s ago today, this little sweet pea was placed on my chest a day before my #birthday. The connection was beyond and I knew at that moment that our little family was complete. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 My little Lexi love, I love that you wake up in the morning with so much gratitude and sweetness. It’s contagious. Even at 5am! 🤪You’re excitement for the simplest things in life ground me and remind me that my worries are insignificant and that I need to stop and live in the moment. 🌈 Thank you for keeping me on my toes and teaming up with big sis. You two are the best personal trainers a mom can ask for. 😆😅And for your tenacious persistence in knowing what you want and always getting it. 🤣 That dimple always gets me!! You will forever be my baby girl. Te AMO mi amor preciosa! #happybirthday

  • Oh my goodness you guys. Guess what??! Recently, I went to our local @Verizon store and found out that they also sell the coolest gadgets that can turn any home into a smart home. 🤗 I’m talking about making it more efficient (hello, money saver), safe and even organized. I mean, who doesn’t want that, right? .
