How This Bilingual Subscription Box is Helping Latina Moms

by Janny Perez February 13, 2018

Hi I'm Janny Perez, proud immigrant daughter, Latina mom to Threenager Victoria Grace, rockstar wife, and founder of Mi Legasi.™  As a proud Latina, I wanted my multicultural daughter to embrace her Latino roots.  I wanted her to learn Español and grow up in a family rooted in old and new traditions.  As a working mamá I completely understand that we have a million things to do and sometimes while we have the best intentions we simply get caught in the day to day.  I wanted to create a thoughtful, time saving, delivered gift box for Latino or multicultural families striving to pass down their culture and traditions to their children, and so, Mi LegaSi was born. Pronounced "Me Legacy."

When you have children it's hard NOT to shift your focus to that little human.  We want to raise them, pass down our traditions, teach them what our parents taught us (at least the good parts), create new memories, and hopefully not scar them in any way for life.  According to scientific research couple's with Preschool kids are the unhappiest in their marriages.  What about our spouses and our partners?  We shouldn't have to wait til our kids turn 18 to be happy again as a couple. We can cultivate our marriages and create loving memories and traditions of our very own.

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?
