SPANGLISH

Troy and I both have workbooks called "Learn to speak Spanish in 10 minutes a day". They have everything laid out phonetically, which you would think would be easy. However, Troy said he never learned his phonics, so he doesn't get it. So I guess we have to buy Hooked On Phonics so he can learn English first, then we'll move on to Spanish. Or maybe I'll just start him off on Dora the Explorer.......His head does look kind of like Boots.....

I have a slight advantage over my DH when it comes to the language department. Although 2 years of Spanish in high school isn't really that all helpful, I've actually picked up a lot more over the years than I thought. And I can roll my R's. It makes it sound much more authentic - even if I am only saying Burrito.

My Latina magazine is helping too - especially since they have every article in both English and Spanish, and many of the articles have a lot of Spanglish thrown in for good measure. Although, according to them I'm supposed to always wear make up and never let Troy see me go to the bathroom or burp or fart. Yeah, that's definitely NOT going to happen anytime soon. Some say it doesn't leave any mystery or that its just plain disgusting.

I say its just me :)

Burping and farting are the foundations of any healthy marriage. Dont listen to Latina Magazine.

Can you imagine Cindy Crawford without make up? According to Latina she would be in trouble. Poor her ...
