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.

El mejor árbol de Navidad!  We always go to a Tree Farm to cut our own árbol de Navidad.  It is a suuuper fun tradition.  My pobre esposo has to cut and haul the tree and at about 14 feet…well, it isn’t an easy task.  Makes for great memories though!!
