Celebrating Our Bilingual Kids With #MamiverseReads

Posted by: | No Comments

Curling up with our bilingual niños and a good book can be one of the best daily routines we could have. It allows us to interact with our kids in an educational and fun way. Even better if we’re reading to them en español! To celebrate the joy of reading and raising bilingual kids, we’ve joined forces with Mamiverse and their new channel Mamiverse Books to host an interactive Twitter party with great prizes! The main goal of this Twitter party will beRead More ...

How to Raise Bilingual Kids With Special Needs

Posted by: | 15 Comments

I’m raising bilingual kids with special needs. You can do it too. When my first child was born, I was immediately warned that I shouldn’t expose a child with special needs to two languages. The reasons were that: — Their speech development will slow down from trying to learn two languages — Their brains don’t have the capacity to make the switch from one language to another — They are already challenged with the disability, so I shouldn’t add anRead More ...

My Bilingual Kids Cross the San Diego-Tijuana Border

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Last Thursday, my family and I traveled to San Diego for my stepson’s graduation from the Marines. It was a crazy, weekend-long trip, but we were happy to all be together for such an important and proud moment in our family’s life. Since Santiago’s padrino and his family moved to that beautiful city last year, we were lucky enough to be able to stay with them. And, because they are Mexican and are used to crossing the border between San DiegoRead More ...

Posted by: | 6 Comments

It’s October and that can mean only one thing: Día de los Muertos is almost here! In the past three years since we launched SpanglishBaby, we’ve found that this is one holiday we’ve all grown to love and embrace. Not only because it’s a beautiful way to remember and celebrate our loved ones who have passed, but also because the holiday is so rich in colors, foods, traditions and symbolisms that represent so well what makes our Latino culture soRead More ...

How to Foster Relationships Between Our Bilingual Kids & Relatives Far Away

Posted by: | 6 Comments

When my daughter was 3, she would point at the screen of my laptop every time I had it open and demand to talk to “-ita!” (her abuelita). Used to Skyping with our relatives in Mexico, she thought “–ita” was always there, waiting to talk to her. Lucky for us, technology makes the world seem smaller and helps families create loving bonds with their long distance relatives, even when we can’t be together in person. When I was growing up,Read More ...

A Gringa in Little Puerto Rico

Posted by: | 10 Comments

Living in downtown Orlando gave me some opportunities to speak Spanish, but it turns out that they were miniscule compared to the practice I’m going to get in my new neighborhood. A month ago, my family moved to the south side of town, closer to where I grew up. I feel comfortable living over here, everything we do is more convenient to our house, and we found a great Montessori school for Isaiah. I didn’t expect to be surprised byRead More ...

Posted by: | No Comments

It’s been almost two weeks since Bilingual is Better was released and so much has happened since then. For starters, we spent a whole week in Miami in a packed press tour and hosting an amazing book launch party. While some of the interviews we did were live — including those for CNN en Español — some of them aired last week and we’re still waiting for dates on the others, including the one we did with renowned Hispanic journalistRead More ...
