A Bean and a Biscuit

Bean is going to have a little hermano or hermana soon, thus my lack of posting. Pregnancy is very hard for me, and I don't handle it well. I barely feel like doing activities in English, let alone Spanish, but I've managed to keep up a bit of exposure.

Bean LOVES the Professor Toto DVD's. We've had them from the library for so long that we can't check them out anymore. So I decided to just bite the bullet and buy the set. We just checked out the Little Pim series from the library. I don't know about these DVD's. I'll give it a chance before commenting any further, but I don't know if I'd describe them as entertaining and engaging.

Another round of Spanish classes is starting soon and I've love for Bean to go, but I just don't have the energy. I know I would see it as a burden and not a fun thing. So I guess I'll just wait until Spring when I don't have to worry about aches, pains, migraines, and vomiting. Plus, the third trimester makes me very antisocial.

On a more positive note, now that I have an opportunity to start using Spanish from birth, I am excited. I planned to start that way with Bean, but it didn't happen. It took a few months to get into my groove.

I am going to keep up my blogging because it keeps me motivated to keep on speaking Spanish even though I really don't like to.


  1. Hi, glad to see you back..sounds like there is a lot going on. When you have the baby it might even encourage Bean to teach the little one a few Spanish words.

  2. Hey,

    That's a good point. Maybe they will only speak to each other in Spanish....it's possible.

  3. Congratulations! Hope you're feeling okay :)
    Good for you for knowing that Spanish class would be too much. It's easy to feel the pressure to continue with these kinds of things. But if you're not up for it - especially when it's so far away - then it wouldn't be good for you or Bean. He'll still get plenty of Spanish.
    It's so great that you'll be speaking Spanish with your new baby from day 1. I know, I thought I would start from the beginning, too, but there was just no way. I had neither the energy nor the vocabulary! But it's exciting to think of starting right off the bat!
