Igniting Your Niños’ Creativity with Crayola

Posted by: | 1 Comment


I recently got a bunch of Crayola goodies in the mail, just in time for Back to School, which was pretty early for my daughter who started Kindergarten the first day of August. All the products are part of Crayola’s new line of washable, smudge-proof and odorless dry erase crayons which are supposed to never dry out. The products, all of which are available at Walmart, included: Crayola Dry- Erase Bright Crayons Crayola Dual-Sided Dry-Erase Board Crayola 3D Dry-Erase ActivityRead More ...

A Memorable First Day of School {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 376 Comments

As many of you know, my 5-year-old daughter, Vanessa, started Kindergarten last Monday. This was a momentous milestone for everyone in our family and so my husband and I walked our firstborn the two blocks from our home to the school armed with cameras, videocameras and iPhones to capture it all. Growing up, I went mostly to private schools which meant that my back to school photos were of me in my school uniform. In other words, pretty boring. ItRead More ...

Ana and I have a big announcement to make today: SpanglishBaby will soon be a book! We’re writing un libro!

Bicultural Birthdays Celebration | An Introduction

Posted by: | 6 Comments

  I love summers! Both Vanessa and Santiago were born in the summer (and so was I, even though I was born in February, since Peru is in the southern hemisphere) which means two birthday parties for us! As I mentioned last week, we celebrated my daughter’s 5th party in our backyard last Sunday. I’m not going to lie and say these are easy because they are actually a TON of work. And, even though, it’s basically non-stop from theRead More ...

All Diapers Are Not Created Equal

Posted by: | 7 Comments


Before I had my son, I had heard a lot of other mothers speak about their preference among brands when it came to diapers for their sons. I wasn’t really sure what they were referring to since I’d only use cloth diapers and one particular brand with my daughter (my attempt to go with a cheaper brand was a bad, bad decision which resulted in a terrible rash I still feel guilty about). So, when I had my son, IRead More ...

Wordless Wednesday: Do You Recycle?

Posted by: | 1 Comment


I recently read that according to the Environmental Protection Agency, 66% of the stuff we trash every day could be recycled. Unfortunately, only about 25% is actually being recycled in the United States. Part of that has to do with the fact that just because you put it in the recycle bin doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll get recycled. Say what? Well it all depends on whether you know what you’re doing (did you know pizza boxes are NOT recyclable?) andRead More ...
