"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
Today was a very important milestone for me as a mom: My "baby" Jayden started his first day of kindergarten! I can't even believe that he's in a real school already but I'm so glad that he's excited to learn. He's entering into a Spanish Immersion program where he'll be taught in 50% English and 50% Spanish on a daily basis so that by the time he enters high school he'll be able to read, write and speak Spanish fluently. Yes in this regard I'm living vicariously through him but hey, no matter what career he chooses when he enters the workforce as a bilingual applicant he'll thank me for it!

When I picked him up today he told me he's gonna teach me how to speak Spanish. His first words he's learned are "rojo" {red} and "amarillo" {yellow}. He also said "hola","adios" and "gracias" but he knew those already thanks to Dora & Diego. :-)

  1. My little Girl LOVES Dora and Diego! Oh I can't wait till Maiya's 1st day of school!

  2. VERY smart to have your son learn Spanish now, and how sweet is he to want to teach you? A thoughtful son means a very loving mother.
