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.

¡Feliz Día del Padre!
Sofía trotted into breakfast this morning with her regalos for el Día del Padre. (I wish I had my camara to record it!). One of her regalos was a cool Pink shirt (for her to wear all day) that said, I "love" Daddy. Sofía thinks that her Papi is the best Papi in the world. He sneaks in her room in the morning to see her if she is sleeping before he leaves. He calls her on the phone to say “hola” a few times a day. He rushes home to see her in the evening and spends ALL his time with her until she goes to sleep. She is so excited to see him all day long on the weekends that sometimes she can’t take her naps. Papi cooks the best food for Sofía too—none of that box or pre-made business from the frozen section. Papi reads books every night to Sofía and makes up his own stories out of the pictures in order to keep Sofía more interested. When Sofía wakes up in the middle of the night, only Papi can calm her down so that she can go back to sleep. ¡Feliz Día del Padre para el mejor Padre del Mundo!
