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.

¡Feliz Día de Independencia!

It was a very low-key celebración for us. 

There wasn’t anything traditional about the way we celebrated this year….no back yard BBQ, or swimming in the pool.  We didn’t even eat “American” cuisine!  But we did watch “Fireworks” and the senario was right out of my own childhood.  Someone brought some simple fireworks so that the niños could see some spark and colors before needing to turn in for the night.  We didn’t even start at dusk, but the shade from our trees provided a good backdrop for bright colors.  The most important thing? 

The niños loved the simple DIY show and we didn’t have to leave our backyard!
