Aislinn Derbez se cree la mamá de su hermanita Aitana ¡y tengo la foto!

Aislinn

Me parece una verdadera ternura. Aislinn Derbez aparece en una foto con su hermanita Aitana. La foto muestra como ambas hermanas duermen plácidamente juntas. Me parece una foto tiernísima donde si no supiéramos el parentesco apostaríamos que son mamá e hija. Aislinn ha demostrado desde el embarazo de Alessandra Rosaldo su aprobación a la llegada de su hermanita y ahora su compromiso para cuidarla sin reservas como hermana, lo que me hace pensar que a veces los roles se confunden. Pero bueno ¡te tengo la foto!

Baby drinking cold water for the first time is EVERYTHING

baby PHOTOS

Every single time I watch this 35 second video of Michael Chepul's baby boy drinking ice water for the first time my face breaks into a HUGE smile and my heart swells. The video reminds me of a lyric from the song "Jack and Diane" by John Mellencamp. The line goes, "Oh yeah life goes on. Long after the thrill of living is gone." This gorgeous baby is nowhere near losing the thrill of living. It's all a magical marvelous wonderland full of exciting new experiences and the best part of it all is that a child's enthusiasm is contagious that's why us jaded grown ups need to be exposed to it. Am I right or am I so right? The only correct answer is that I am right and that's why I urge you to watch this video.

Todo lo que puedes hacer con tus hijos en un día lluvioso de otoño

Family_Game

Cuando era niña, en los días de lluvia armábamos rompecabezas. Pasábamos horas clasificando piezas por colores. Armábamos el marco entre todos, mis hermanos, mi mamá y yo. Luego empezábamos a armar lo de adentro. También jugábamos juegos de mesa como el Monopolio o el Scrable. O construíamos algo con Legos. Y pasábamos un tiempo de calidad que se me hacía divertidísimo. Cuando crecí y aprendí a hacer galletas, entonces en los días lluviosos me aplicaba. Nada como algo rico horneándose mientras afuera hace frío y esta nublado. Ahora que tengo mis hijos, los días de lluvia, esos en los que no provoca salir, son perfectos para todo eso y también para jugar video juegos ¡que hasta yo pueda jugar!

Si bien es difícil generalizar y decir que en cada familia latina existen tradiciones y valores específicos, el hecho es que sí hay algo que nos hace diferentes y es el valor que la familia tiene en la cultura.

10 Cool jack-o-lanterns that don't require knives!

Can I be totally honest about pumpkin carving for a minute? I mean really and truly totally honest, okay? It kinda sucks and I prefer no-carve pumpkin decoration by far! Yup, I said it, pumpkin carving kind of sucks. Why? Because it's messy, you gotta stick your hand in there and get all the pumpkin guts out and yes, you can turn the guts into yummy pepitas and all, but I swear the pumpkin guts irritate my skin. Also, if you have young kids they have like zero knife skills! Really, you shouldn't even try carving pumpkins with your kids until they are old enough to carry a switchblade. I'm kidding! The switchblade thing is a joke, but the not carving pumpkins with kids who can't handle a knife is not.

If you have young kids I suggest you go the no-carve pumpkin decorating route and I've even got a pumpkin load of ideas and examples for you.
