SpanglishBaby Gets Comfortable With Hanes at Disney World

Posted by: | 12 Comments

It’s been a little over two years since we launched SpanglishBaby into the blogosphere.  We started this space as a passion project where Roxana and I could write, share and learn from the community of parents raising kids bilingually and bi-culturally, like us.  The more SpanglishBaby grows, the more content we have to produce and time we must dedicate to keeping it all up. At the same time, both Roxana and I have to work and find any time possibleRead More ...

Once upon my life I lived in South Beach only blocks away from the turquoise Caribbean Sea.  One day, I got tired of the calmness and beauty of it all and decided I was ready to embrace a bit of chaos in my life. You know, wanting to grow up and all that.  This was before I hit my Thirties. So, I sold everything I had, packed my bags and moved to Mexico City. Just like that. Against everyone´s advice thatRead More ...

Why We Joined the Moms Clean Air Force

Living in Los Angeles is not for the faint of heart. We live with the constant threat of tsunamis, wild fires, earthquakes (too often referred to as “The Big One”), and contaminants in our air. You can say it’s the price we pay to live in average 72-degree climate and under the most gorgeous skies, not to mention our sunsets, mountain ranges, sushi and beaches (albeit freezing waters!). Last week was an intense one, to say the least, with theRead More ...

Mama Meltdown---SpanglishBaby

I was not a good mamá this morning. I lost my patience big time and entered into the biggest battle of wills with a tiny person with a really strong head (guess where she gets that from?!)

The day goes by so quickly with mom-duties, house-duties and business-duties that I never get around to the me-duties.  After consideringRead More ...

I’m still waiting to get the appointment due to health insurance coverage issues. (No surprise here, huh?) Meanwhile, I’ve noticed something that left me in total awe and completely gave me one more point to validate her bilingualism. As I’ve mentioned before, my girl has no problems expressing herself and isRead More ...
