So as I’ve mentioned here a few times, we are raising a bilingual baby. Right now, there are a couple words Maya is preferring to say in Spanish — her new favorites being “pan” (for “bread” and “pollo” (“for chicken”). We’re working on “vamanos!” for let’s go (she is like Dora, except blond and blue-eyed).
Thanksgiving week (11/19) we leave for a week-long trip to El Salvador to visit Luis’s family and to celebrate his mom’s 75th birthday. I’m mostly geeked to see family and friends and hit the beach, but I’m also looking forward to my Spanish coming back.
Fellow blogger and blog reader Jason at Run4Change— who has lost an astounding amount of weight through running and Weight Watchers and has a blog devoted to healthy living — asked me to write a guest post for his blog. Check out “Weight Isn’t the Problem; It’s a Symptom of Something Else.” It’s based on Oprah’s trainer Bob Greene’s interview with Larry King earlier this week.
