Just wanted to talk about how cool it is to have a bilingual child. During my first marriage, I raised 3 beautiful daughters. Unfortunately, I didn't speak Spanish at that time; hence, they are not bilingual. This time around I am basically a fluent Spanish speaker....hope for all you over 30 who want to learn a second language... I wanted to share a cool thing that is happening with my 2 1/2 yr old.
My daughter goes to a monolingual babysitter. She speaks English. All day long my daughter doesn't speak a lick of Spanish. The minute I walk in the door she lights up and starts rattling stuff off in Spanish. It is sooo wonderful. I just hope we can maintain that.
If anyone else has a cool experience with their BC (Bilingual Child), PLEASE feel free to share. It will be an encouragement to others. Until the next time ~Dorinda~
