About a month ago my daughter and I met up with my mom – la abuelita – who flew from El Salvador to meet up with us to travel around Florida for some work and leisure.

My girl and I enjoyed our family visit to the Universal Orlando Resort so much last year, that we went back for more a few weeks ago during our trip to Florida. We´re so thankful we got to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel since Camila´s favorite water slide is there and it was a tough time getting her out of the pool! We were able to convince her by reminding her how much fun she had at Dr. Seuss´LandingRead More ...

Why It Takes a Nonconformist to Raise A Bilingual Child

Posted by: | 12 Comments

Earlier last week I had to write my first post on my new blog – Besos – for Babble as one of their new Voices. As I tried to introduce myself to that new audience, I kept coming back to the label of nonconformist which was given to me by my high school friends when the class superlatives were announced. There I was, right under the title of “Class Nonconformist.” No, I wasn’t thrilled with it at all, but overRead More ...
