Now that I have a baby I am living up to the expectation I set for myself even before I had children, which is to raise my little ones bilingually. As a business owner of a bilingual childrens’ company there is no excuse for me, my child must be bilingual! Joe and I made a pact when we found out I was pregnant, I speak Spanish and he speaks in English to the baby. So far so good. I am enjoying singing, reading and talking to Leo in Spanish so much, plus it really is great practice for me and my rusty Spanish. He loves all of the Spanish nursery rhymes that I remember from my childhood, and I have found some classic books in Spanish to share with him as well. Not only that, he is already at 2 1/2 months a huge Professor Pocket fan! He loves the songs and music, and as soon as I can get it on film I will post him listening to his favorite song. Buenas Noches Luna…
