Where does my passion for bilingualism come from?

multilingual parents raising children speaking nonnative English


The love, passion or interest for languages comes to each one of us in a different way. In my case, it was something that didnt come from me at the beginning. It came from my environment. It wasnt me the one who started to have the need of speaking other languages or the one who wanted to learn a new language for fun and pleasure.

My child's first toy-book

My friend Isabel gave my son this book as a new baby gift, when he was just two months old.  He couldnt use it at that moment as he was too little, but soon after, when he was five months, I gave it to him for the first time.

Toilet Training: Increasing Confidence with Cottonelle Flushable Wipes

Transitiniong my daughter from her cute pink potty to grown-up potty was not too fun or easy for her, she had grown to love her small potty and didn’t feel the need to transition to a grown up potty, or as we call it the toilet. The hardest part of the transition was getting her to clean herself with toilet paper instead of baby wipes she used. Thankfully I was able to convince her the toile ...

Hunger Is at Randalls : Make Breakfast Happen So Kids Can Be Hungry for More.

We’ve all been through hard times at one point or another, but it is especially hard if you are or have children. I am very excited to be once again participating in the Hunger Is campaign at Randalls here in Houston, which runs from September 1st- 30th. I was mind blown last year after finding out that 1 in 5 children here in the USA live in homes without adequate food. On top of that, 10 m ...
