Two Kitchen Gadgets That Promise to Make My Life Easier in the Kitchen

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Those who know me well know I’m no good in the kitchen. I love to eat, but not to cook, which is really weird because my father was an ace in the kitchen, but sadly, I didn’t inherit any of his culinary talents. Even so, I have to cook for my kids and husband regardless of my cooking abilities. So, anything that will make this busy mom’s life easier in this arena is always welcomed! That’s why when Walmart gaveRead More ...

SpanglishBaby Dads: Celebrating Papás Raising Bilingual Kids

Posted by: | No Comments

With Father’s Day coming up this weekend, we figured there was no better time to celebrate papás who are raising bilingual kids. While we tend to hear a lot more from moms than dads, the reality is that fathers play an integral role when raising kids in more than one language — even when they’re monolingual. Raising bilingual kids is all about support and encouragement, and if the whole family is not on board, it can end up being a muchRead More ...

Easy & Useful Gift Idea for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and since we’ll be far away from home because we’re traveling to Puerto Rico on Friday, I’m letting the kids give their gifts to their dad a bit earlier than usual.

It’s official! My 3-year-old son’s vocabulary in English has multiplied exponentially the last couple of months, and he’s starting to have a preference for his new language. I’ve been observing him closely lately and I am pretty amazed by the fact that whenever he plays by himself, English is his language of choice. Nothing wrong with that, except that it’s all totally new for me because his sister didn’t really do that. I’m pretty sure it has to do with the fact thatRead More ...

Fun Summer Activities to Keep Your Niños Entertained

Posted by: | 11 Comments

My daughter has been done with school since last week. My son even longer because he’s only in preschool. We have a lot of plans for this summer, including a month-long trip to Puerto Rico to visit my husband’s family. But until we get on the plane, I have to figure out what to do with them during the long, lazy days of summer. It’s more difficult to entertain my 3-year-old son than it is my 6-year-old daughter, who canRead More ...

A Dreaded Summer Task Made Easier

Posted by: | 1 Comment

One of the tasks I dread the most when the weather starts getting warmer is our annual garage cleanup. We normally tackle this in early spring, but the weather has been crazy in Colorado and it’s only in the last couple of weeks that it has actually gotten warmer, so we finally decided the time had come  — especially because I got these really cool, versatile and new Rubbermaid All Access Storage Containers that got me pretty excited about re-organizingRead More ...
