January Newsletter

I just churned out the January Newsletter while Kylen is asleep and Chloe is off with Nana. I will pay for this long nap when it's 11:00 PM and Kylen is still bouncing off the walls but it's a give and take right?

Here's a link to the newsletter but you should just join the list and get the newsletter! Click here to sign up.

There's a lot of info on an event we're participating in this Sunday about raising a bilingual child. We'll be there as Abbasubi but we're bringing the kids because I think it will actually be a fun, interesting, informative time for the whole family! I'm really looking forward to it.

Here's the basics from the website.

Panel topics include:
* How do you define bilingualism?
* If I introduce a second language, will my child experience speech delays?
* At what point should a parent introduce a second language - how
much, how often?

only speak English?

Okay. Time to wake up Kylen!
