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.

by Janny Perez July 19, 2018 1 Comment

It's summertime, where flip flops meet beaches, sun and sand abound, and I can't help but reminisce of my summers growing up in Miami.  It's funny looking back and now that I have a daughter I want to pass down some of the things my parents did and we did as kids, ok maybe not giving my child beer.  Even though some of the things we did seemed like so much work, I can now see the values and lessons learned from them.

How to Raise Multicultural Kids Proud of Their Heritage - A Latina Mom's Approach

by Janny Perez July 05, 2018

I was born in Colombia, raised in Miami, Florida and both of my parents are Colombian as are my siblings.  My husband was born in Bulgaria, immigrated to the U.S when he was 18 years old and his family is also Bulgarian.  Our daughter, Victoria, was born in Manhattan, NY.  She is now 3 years old and we are doing our best to raise her to be in touch with her roots and heritage while also being a proud American.  We cannot assume that our kids will automatically absorb our cultures and languages, so what are things that we can do to help them?

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.

Lessons learned from my father - Stories from 3 Latino entrepreneurs.

by Janny Perez June 13, 2018

It takes a certain type of person to be an entrepreneur, freelancer, or contractor.  The uncertainty of tomorrow, the desire to take action and go after your dreams, the rejections, the highs and lows are all things we have to deal with.  Our mothers and fathers had a huge impact on us as children.  You take what you've learned and you want push harder, aim higher, and go farther, why?  Maybe because you are now a mamá or papá.  Maybe you want to make your familia proud or maybe you simply want to break a cycle and prove that yes you can.  Whatever the reason, there are lessons that you can learn.  These are the lessons that I've learned from my father...

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.
