I was surprised and excited when I found out I had been nominated for the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ by bilinguazo at Bilingual Eyes, a bilingual mum in Texas trying to keep Spanish alive for her little ones. What a great idea – it’s given me a boost (cheers bilinguazo) as well as lots more blogs to discover!
It’s now my turn pay it forward and nominate 10 other blogs and give you 7 fascinating facts about myself. I’ve decided to break my list down by topic.
Bilingualism, language learning etc:
Trilingual Mama - I’ve always got something to learn from this latina mum of 4 living near Paris.
My Little Spanish Notebook – I love this blog for discovering new Spanish words and also hearing about what it’s like bringing up a family as an English mum in Spain.
The bilingual experiment – Impressed by this mum’s determination to learn French alongside her baby daughter.
Spanglish Baby – Great resources and an informative book – Bilingual Is Better (of course!)
MommyMaestra – Another great site for Spanish resources for kids
Toddler activities, Montessori etc:
The Imagination Tree – Full of excellent, practical ideas to keep the little ones busy.
How We Montessori – Beautiful blog … I want your life!
Natural Beach Living - Also full of beautiful, creative ideas.
Todder Approved – lots of fun for toddlers here.
Frugal Fun for Boys – seriously impressed by this mama, who seems to be able to look after 4 boys, a newborn baby girl and still find time to blog!
Seven things about me:
Vegetarian; Atheist; Sun-worshipper (yes, I am aware I live in the UK): Travel addict: once again a Student (DipTrans professional translation qualification); Non tea drinker (I know, prerequisite for being English… but there’s always one); Nursing mum (yes still).
So now you know a bit more about me….and hopefully I haven’t scared you away. I am new to both the world of blogging and to bilingual parenting so I have much to learn. Bring it on!
