When I was young, my siblings and I would always sing a special prayer to our guardian angel prior to going to sleep.  We believed that our special angel was always at our side watching over us.  It was a belief that made me feel protected and loved. I am also teaching my own children about God’s love and protection, and so was thrilled to discover a new cartoon series that presents the concept of a guardian angels and theRead More ...

Sharing My Most Messy Moment

Posted by: | 1 Comment

A series of messy moments… the perfect way to describe (one part of) motherhood – especially when there’s a baby involved. Before I became a mom, one of the things I dreaded most about having babies was the idea of changing diapers, particularly the poop type. Everybody used to tell me that it wasn’t that bad when it was your own child, but I didn’t feel any different once my daughter was born. I wanted to barf every single timeRead More ...

To Teach My Daugther to Read in Spanish First or Not?

Posted by: | 25 Comments

For months I’ve been trying to figure out how I would go about teaching my daughter, Vanessa, how to read in Spanish. I know she’s been ready to learn for at least six months, but I guess I’ve been the one who wasn’t ready.

Once there, she’d just follow along with the rest of the kids in her class andRead More ...
