How Truly Bilingual is my Daughter?

Posted by: | 25 Comments

I’m worried. I know I shouldn’t be. But, I’m a mom. And moms worry, right?

Bilingual Board Books for Toddlers {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 26 Comments

It’s been almost a week since we got back home from our viaje relámpago to Perú, my home country. Saying good-bye to my family is always extremely difficult for me because I never know how long it’ll be before we see each other again. Coming back to the States is also difficult because life here is so different at so many levels. From the taste of the food to the meaning of time… Our trip back was hellish, to sayRead More ...
