Kids Learn The Darndest Things!

Kids Learn The Darndest Things! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Little boys are unusual to say the least. I’m saying this from the perspective of someone who until relatively recently didn’t pay too much attention to details like these. Not until the role of parent was introduced into my life. Like most rookie-father-figure-types-in-the-beginning-stages, I was at once excited and terrified of everything that this one single word could mean: father...

I’m going to Detroit, The D, Motown, The Motor City! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

I can’t believe it! I’m going to Detroit, Michigan next week! I’ve always been enamored with the northern most portion of the United States, and until this summer had only read about this part of the country in books, imagining myself in the midst of all of that snow.

The True Story Behind My Own Ballet Folklorico Experience

The True Story Behind My Own Ballet Folklorico Experience | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

The other day, a while ago, I wrote about how we forced Edgar into ballet folkclorico when he told us he didn’t speak Spanish. So many of you were so supportive about our decision to register him in that class and our efforts to familiarize him with his roots, including the Spanish language. What I failed to tell you about in that post was my own experience with this traditional Mexican performance art...

No matter how much my mother would signal me with her hands to come back, worry in her face, they say I’d only turn back at them and turn away, as if taunting them with my disobedience...
