My Boys Don’t Speak Spanish…So What?

This post has been in me for quite some time now but I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share. Today I figured, what better time is there to speak about this than during Hispanic awareness month? I have discussed before that many have thought that I am not Hispanic ‘enough’ and this conclusion is often accompanied by people questioning why I haven’t taught my boys the Spanish language. My response to that is always, “If they have no interest, why should I force them?” I don’t feel like I … [Read more...]

Home is where the … [Read more...]

I Feel More Hispanic Than Ever

When I was a young girl, I learned Spanish because I wanted to communicate with my Abuelita back in Puerto Rico. Born and raised by a Puerto Rican mother and American father, I never felt awkward about being “different”. I didn’t come from the typical Hispanic family where dinner always consisted of platanos with rice and beans. I always say, “I was blessed to have the best of both worlds in my childhood.” I grew up with variety but I knew I was different. That said, I always felt as though I … [Read more...]

LeapFrog LeapBand Giveaway and Interview With Mia Hamm

**Disclosure: This interview opportunity is sponsored by LeapFrog and all opinions are my own**   As a full time working mom in the classroom, I try to stay pretty active with my boys.

Getting Ready for Fall With Febreze

**Disclosure: This post  is sponsored by Febreze. All opinions are my own**   Living with three men in my household is NO easy task for this lady! The mess that each of them make drives me insane.

They are truly lucky I adore each one of them, and I am lucky that there is Febreze Home Harvest Collection to get that funk out of my house! That SCENT-sational smell … [Read more...]

I Want To Win The #BrillanteMedia Pass to #NicheParent14

I have been blogging for about three years now. I created MommyTeaches in 2012 because I was instantly hooked on writing online.

I’m a teacher who has always had this burning desire to write but chose to teach as a full-time profession for practical reasons. To be honest, I never thought my writing could make me that steady income that we … [Read more...]
