#MasDeLoTuyo from Sears!

This is a sponsored post with Sears through Latin Bloggers Connect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I have a very small family.

My kids are growing up with a firm foundation that when all else fails, family will always be there. We strive to help {Read More}

Turbo: Fast Activity Sheets for Kids


My kids loved Turbo. Even my teen son!  Since he’s into cars, he was all into the high-flying action of cars, races and speedways. I liked it too. Especially that the owner of Turbo was Latino.  If you haven’t seen the movie, just know that we give it a big thumbs up! So, as a continuation of Turbo, Turbo: FAST follows Turbo and his pals on their pursuit of big dreams, as they continue to amp up everything to the {Read More}

Fab Hair Tips from Sam Leonardi and Neutrogena (Giveaway)

Fab Hair Tips from Sam Leonardi and Neutrogena (Giveaway)

I have big, poofy, somewhat curly hair that is hard to maintain. For the most part, I rarely wear my hair down. It would have to be super cold weather for me to style it and actually let my curls flow in the wind. During the summer, I had my hair in a ponytail and my neighbor commented about how she didn’t know I had long hair. That’s how rarely I wear it down! We spent a lot of time {Read More}

Have your kids already lost some school supplies at school?  How about folders or binders?  Oh, and I won’t even talk about sweaters!  My kids have been in school for 2 days and my son already forgot his water bottle at the school playground. I swear these kids are so forgetful!  My kids have not-so common names. Walking into a novelty store, where they might have personalized items for kids is super hard for my kids.

Backpacks are packed and school clothes are ready. We’ve been ready for back-to-school for a few weeks and with all the excitement for a brand new school year for the kids, for this mom, my fears have returned. Fears of panic, attacks, guns, shootings, evacuations, mass-anythings and my heart just bottoms out.

Cantinflas: A Review

Cantinflas: A Review - FamilyisFamilia.com

In any Mexican household, the name Cantinflas is as nostalgic as pan dulce and chocolate mexicano.  I remember my dad and mom watching his movies on the Spanish language TV stations. I would try to keep up with the movie but I couldn’t quite catch some of the punchlines due to how freaking fast Cantinflas would speak!  Half the time, I would have to ask them what he had said because I clearly didn’t get it. Mexican icon, Mario Moreno,”Cantinflas“, {Read More}
