¿Aprendamos español?

I'd love for Marguerite to grow up speaking Spanish. That's going to be a real challenge for me as I'm the only one here who speaks Spanish to her, and not even all the time, at that. I do set aside about an hour or so most days to read to her in Spanish (I have a number of children's books in Spanish, including a collection of leyendas - legends- and cuentos de hada - fairy tales.) and talk to her in Spanish with something Spanish going on in the background, like the TVE (Telemundo to some of you - and, no, not during telenovela hours), a Spanish DVD, or a Spanish CD. It's really just exposure, nothing structured. My DVDs and CDs are primarily for grown-ups though, so I comb the web for materials that are designed to cater to kids, particularly the younger set. While I have yet to order the items that I found, I turn to YouTube for canciones infantiles (children's songs) and Spanish kiddie video clips. I really like the ones posted by Enochmartin because most of them are the Spanish version of songs I learned in Sunday School, so I only need to learn the words and I won't have any trouble with the tune, not more than usual anyway. lol To all the moms out there who wish to have their kid/s learn Spanish, hope you like the video featured above, and
