Last week I was invited by McDonald’s to a First Taste event to be one of the first to try a new addition to their breakfast menu:  Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and McCafe Caramel Mocha. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of overindulgent mocha coffee drinks, but I am huge on freshly prepared oatmeal, especially if it’s loaded with fruits, cranberries, raisins and brown sugar. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that starting January 3rd, 2011 this oatmeal, preparedRead More ...

Descubriendo los Transportes With Music {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 16 Comments

The first thing Camila said when I showed her the new CD that had arrived in the mail was:  “¡Mamá! ¡El mono de los colores!”  That was a very good sign. She had immediately recognized the Descubriendo Líneas DVD we had watched and reviewed over a month ago where Bubba–the “mono”–engages with “colores.”  I guess she liked it more than I gave her credit for! This music CD, Descubriendo los Transportes, is part of the Argentinean-created Descubriendo Líneas catalog ofRead More ...

We haven’t celebrated the holiday season with family at all since Camila was born three years ago. So, this trip will be special in many ways.  In an odd way, even though I was raised inRead More ...

Video Interview With Minerva, host of TuBebé on Vme

Posted by: | No Comments

Lately, one of the things I´m finding really difficult to control about my personality is the impulse to want to ask every single bilingual Mom I meet if their children are also bilingual.  That´s why I couldn´t resist the offer to sit down with Minerva, co-host of Vme´s TuBebé show, to talk about her 2-year old boy and how she works to keep both language and culture alive at home. The interview is in Spanish. We apologize it does notRead More ...
