Hi,<br /> <br /> My name is Ana Flores and I&nbsp;am mom to Camila, born August 2007.<br /> <br /> My friend Roxana and I, two Latina mamis, started the blog http://SpanglishBaby.com as a resource for parents raising bilingual and bi-cultural kids.<br /> <br /> Before having kids, the idea of bringing them up bilingual didn&rsquo;t seem like a big deal to us. But as our firstborns became toddlers and started speaking, we realized the concept was a bit more complex than we originally envisioned. Fortunately, we soon discovered that we were not alone. Unfortunately, we also soon realized there wasn&rsquo;t a whole lot of info out there on how to raise bilingual children and keep our native traditions and customs alive in the home.<br /> <br /> This is our dream and we're happy to share it with all.<br /> <br /> Thanks!<br />
