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.

Los Reyes Magos

Enero 6 is the Fiesta de los Reyes Magos or when the Three Wise Men came and visited Baby Jesus.  Many countries have very different and very chévere celebaciones.  I wish I had the time to expand on the, but that will have to be for a future post.  Bueno….our familia tries to give a little gift on that day too.  This year, we kind of did our own thing and celebrated the night of Enero 6 instead of the night of Enero 5…but whatever, it was a Friday and it worked for us.  So we did a simple little dinner (yes AGAIN!) of baked rigatoni and meatballs and Sopa de Espárragos.  (red and green!).  Sofía’s favorite cousin, Juan Diego and his mother were still in town visiting, so los abuelos and la Tía Greta and JD of course came over.  Juan Diego and Sofía decorated cupcakes that Sofía and I baked.  We all put our shoes by the door and like magia, while we were eating, the Reys Magos came and left us regalitos in our zapatos!  It was a nice simple way for us to end the Holiday Season (now we can officially take down the Árbol de Navidad) and take a short breather before we prepare for Sofía’s cumpleaños!
