Bilingual in the Boonies

Publish date:

I am a former newspaper reporter who now hangs full-time with her bilingual-in-the-making chiquitica, when I am not selling my line of Spanish children's T-shirts. I live in Tennessee, far from the Cuban-American homeland that is Miami, so for Spanish comfort I stalk Latina moms at the park, grocery store and gym.


Dear Crissy

I am a 30-year-old WAHM (which stands for work at home mom, not to be confused with WHAM!, the British pop duo) living in Ohio. When I’m not changing diapers, I work as a professional lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer.
