Why every mom should give themselves a gift of a lifetime, and not feel guilty about it!

Why every mom should give themselves a gift of a lifetime, and not feel guilty about it!

by Janny Perez October 04, 2018

First let me start by saying, I’m not rich.  I’m Janny, a just turned 40 year old mom to a 3 year old, wife, working 2 jobs, paying bills, mustering enough energy to cook, clean, and get everything done—Not perfect, but done.  Sound familiar? I dream of one day acquiring enough wealth to not have to worry about bills.  I’m sure that sounds familiar too.  However, the fact that I’m not rich (yet) has not stopped me from giving myself a gift to treasure for a lifetime and here’s why you should do the same.

8 Reasons Why Your Young Child May Be Acting Up - Mi Legasi

by Janny Perez August 22, 2018

As a mom to a 3 year old, I can say that we've had tantrums, meltdowns, and full blowouts over somethings as little as not having an apple juice at night or as big as an ear infection, which I had no idea about.  I reached out to my sister, 20 year experienced preschool teacher, Dasy Perez, about reasons why young children act up and how we can help.  I've also included some resources that can help.  Here's what Dasy had to say.

10 Things to Do Before you Have Kids

10 Things to Do Before you Have Kids

by Janny Perez August 02, 2018

Having a child will change your life.  I know, everybody says that, but until you actually have a child you don't fully understand what that means.  Whether you have a child in your 20's or 30's doesn't matter, because they will bring you such joy.  However, there are things that are definitely easier to do when you don't have kids and there are things that you will benefit from, if you do them early enough.  Here's my top list of things to do, most of which I did and some I wish I had done like #9.

What You Need to Know to Potty Train - A Q & A

What You Need to Know to Potty Train - A Q & A

by Janny Perez June 27, 2018

My daughter is now 3.  Is she fully potty trained?  Well,  yes kind of sort of, um I guess the right answer is no.    When I hear parents say that they potty trained their child in 2 days, I am baffled.  When should you start potty training? What should you do? What are some tools you can use? When should you not potty train?  Because this is such a huge part  of toddlerhood, I wanted to ask my sister Dasy Perez (18 year experienced preschool teacher)  for her advice on the matter.

25 Unique Hispanic Baby Boy Names

25 Unique Hispanic Baby Boy Names

by Janny Perez May 31, 2018

When I was pregnant, before we knew we were having a girl, we (well I) had some boy names picked out. Good thing we had a girl cause those names were not going to be easy for mis padres (my parents).... we named her Victoria Grace and my parents only butcher Grace, not so bad.

I've compiled a list from top baby name app "Baby Names" of rare but up trending Spanish & Latin baby boy names and narrowed it down to 25. Maybe you'll find your baby's name here :)

How to prepare your toddler for a new sibling. - Un nuevo hermanito o hermanita.

by Janny Perez May 23, 2018

I have one 3 year old daughter named Victoria (in my belly below). I would love to have another child, right about now but for health reasons, we have decided to only have one child.  Many of my friends are now having a second baby and I wanted to address some of their concerns.

Like them, many parents have a second child when their firstborn is 2-4 years old so there isn’t a huge difference in age when the children grow up.  I asked my sister, an 18 year experienced preschool teacher, to share her advice and her experiences with you in order to help you when you're ready to have bebé #2.  Check out this month’s Dasy’s Corner.

7 Healthy Tips To Kick off the Año Nuevo with Your Familia

by Janny Perez January 03, 2018

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!  Oh the holidays were so yummy with the natilla, buñuelos, cookies, tamales, coquito, chocolate, and all the indulgences.  Nobody ever gives you a box of apples for Christmas now do they? Every year is the same, at least for me, I am somewhat good UNTIL Thanksgiving and then it's all downhill from there and repeat.  Sound familiar? January comes along, with a few extra pounds and a new focus and determination until November again. But you know what? F#@k it.
