Sleep, Baby, Sleep: Get Your Bebé To Sleep Through the Night

Posted by: | 3 Comments


I love to sleep. I know, who doesn’t, right? But I really like to sleep and I’ve always been a sound sleeper. My mom used to say that not even an earthquake would wake me up and she likes to tell the story of how difficult it was to wake me up every morning to go to school. I always knew having children would change that, but I wasn’t aware how much it would. I remember how right before becomingRead More ...

The one and only picture of Ana, Camila, Vanessa and I during our awesome trip to Disney World as part of Hanes Comfort Crew. This was during the Pirate Party they hosted for us at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. I’ve no idea how Vanessa spotted them, but she was first in line to take her picture with them and get their autographs. Total happiness doesn’t even do justice to what she was feeling at the time the pictureRead More ...

A Great Gift Idea for Abuelita: Kodak Digital Frame & EasyShare Camera

Posted by: | 5 Comments


My suegra has been visiting us from Puerto Rico for the last four weeks. She’s spending Mother’s Day with us and a couple of days later she’s going back home. This is only the second time she sees my son Santiago since he was born. The first couple of days, he wasn’t sure who she was, but now he’s grown to love her and calls her Ta — since he can’t say Abuelita — and she melts. Vanessa and IRead More ...

A Mother’s Day Gift…for my Niños

Posted by: | 15 Comments


Queridos hijos, I’ve never been one to care too much about celebrations like Mother’s Day. I feel they are way too commercialized and too much effort is put into material gifts. Plus, my dad — your abuelito — used to say that Mother’s Day is everyday! But I guess you’re too young to understand any of that. You’re also still too young to understand the perilous state of our planet. But, I’m not. I’ve called earth home much longer thanRead More ...

Worldess Wednesday: Mickey Ears

My son, Santiago — who didn’t get to go with us on our Hanes Comfort Crew trip to Disney World last week — was digging all the awesome Mickey Mouse goodies we brought him back. From his very own Mickey Mouse T-shirt (his sister and I made it especially for him at Downtown Disney’s Hanes Design-A-Tee shop) to the Mickey ears with my name embroidered on the back, all courtesy of Hanes. His daddy is a photographer and every timeRead More ...

Our SpanglishBabies, Vanessa and Camila, at the Grand Floridian in Disney World, completely oblivious to our pleas not to get their pants wet… We’re spending this week at Disney World as part of Hanes #ComfortCrew. ...

Spanish Friday | Viernes Santo

Posted by: | 6 Comments


Llevo semanas queriendo hacer lo que nuestra amiga Latinaish hace todos lo viernes: Spanish Friday. ¡Por fin lo puedo hacer! Hoy es Viernes Santo y yo estoy trabajando. ¡Qué horror! De todas las cosas que se me hicieron difíciles de asimilar cuando me mudé a éste país hace casi 24 años, trabajar — o ir al colegio — en Semana Santa es una a las que jamás me acostumbraré. Mientras que toda mi familia y amigos en el Perú yRead More ...

Wordless Wednesday: Language Lover

Posted by: | 10 Comments


My dad LOVED languages and he was so aware of the benefits of knowing more than one language that he made sure we grew up bilingual. This week marks seven years since he passed away, and I miss him so… He was always such a huge supporter of everything I did. I think he would’ve been proud of SpanglishBaby, ¿no?   ...
