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.

Dos Manos

“Dos manos Mami”  Sofía tells me as we are driving down the road.  I kind of shake my head in bewilderment and think I didn’t hear what I thought I heard.  But again, Sofía tells me, “Dos manos Mami.”  I was indeed only driving with one hand at the time.  I put both hands on the wheel and asked her if she wanted me drive with two hands on the wheel.   “Si, dos manos Mami.”  I of course tested it out and each time my second hand came off the wheel, I heard the same cantaleta, “Dos manos Mami.”
