About La Mother Tongue

La Mother Tongue is my medium to share the joys and challenges of being a new parent as well as to share how we make a conscious effort in our daily life to bring baby up bilingual.

La Gatita

We have always felt that our gatos think they are our babies. Nacho sleeps in our bed under the blanket with his head on a pillow. They both sit on the chairs during dinner. We are gato pushovers. So it is no wonder that on our way home from the hospital after Sofía was born, that my husband said that she looks like a little gatita. And that was it, her new nickname was born. Since then, over the past year, we have noticed many similarities between La Gatita and the gatos. They like to play with the same toys (remote controls, cell phones, balls, a piece of paper or a paper clip) and eat the same foods (chicken, beef, and peas). Heck…she even likes to feed them! Take a peek!
