So far, so not very good

Family outing today with non-Spanish speaking family, no Spanish spoken…

Tomorrow we have a play date with Spanish-speaking friends so the mother and I will speak lots of Spanish while the kids lapse into English in another room!

Before this I have to get through emergency shoe shopping with both kids. They literally have nothing to put on their feet except wellies and crocs. Bound to be a nightmare. Maybe I can throw some Spanish in to lighten things up? Seems like a good way to get them used to me speaking it to them is to be funny with it. They like word play.

    Go for it! You can do it. Yes, it can be a pain in the ass to have to think about what language you are using, feel awkward in a second language, etc, but the benefits are worth it. Your kids will definately thank you for it, (but not until they are searching for their first job), and maybe hubby will even come around. We’ll be checking in here to see how it is going.

  2. Thanks Rea!
