Keep It Up, Keep It Closed, Keep It Safe #ArribaCerradosSeguros

For families with children age 5 and younger, it only takes a second for an everyday household item to become a danger. Studies show that while parents often take precautions to properly child proof their home, such as locking away cleaning products in their kitchens, the laundry area is often overlooked. Like other household cleaning products, laundry pacs need to be handled with great care to prevent unintended exposure. Tide has partnered with some of our parenting bloggers to bring awareness to some of the vulnerable areas in our home and make every home a safe one by keeping laundry pacs #ArribaCerradosSeguros.

"El que los niños se lleven objetos a la boca es absolutamente normal y hasta beneficioso para su desarrollo. De hecho, según la Academia Americana de Pediatría, uno de los logros de los pequeños a partir de los sietes meses es precisamente explorar el mundo con sus manos y “probando” las cosas. Por lo tanto, si bien no debemos de tratar de evitar esta etapa de los pequeños, es importante  estar conscientes y alerta en todo momento. "

"Una de las cosas que hace grandioso a Estados Unidos es que cada inmigrante que llega aporta un cambio a la cultura. La tradición del conejo y los huevos fue traído por Alemanes, el conejo representa fertilidad y los huevos representan el comienzo de una nueva vida. Los niños ponen canastas para que el conejo de pascua ponga sus huevos y el día de pascua los niños salen a buscarlo. Además se junta con la celebración de Semana Santa y con la bienvenida de la primavera. Y ahora que Benjamin tiene casi 20 meses, sé que es un plan que va a disfrutar muchísimo."

We would go to church, pick up my grandmother from home and set a table with appetizers and things to drink while my mom made her famous asopao de camarones. It’s a tradition that I’ve kept even when it was just my son and I at home alone as a homage to my family back east, who I love and miss dearly. May the traditions live on!"

Colombiana en California

Como me sé de memoria el orden de las secciones del almacén, llegué directamente a uno de los departamentos que más me gusta: el de cocina y comedor. Allí encontré individuales, servilletas, platos, refractarias, conejitos de cerámica de todos los tamaños…¡no sabía qué escoger porque lo quería todo!

La Pascua es una de las celebraciones que más me ha gustado festejar desde que llegué a California, pero son pocas las veces que he tenido la oportunidad de disfrutarlas en casa. Siempre estamos invitados a un gran banquete en la casa de la familia política, y por tal razón no tenía objetos de decoración alusivos a la fiesta.

3 Reasons Why Grocery Outlet Bargain Market Is A Game Changer

If you've been looking for a one-stop shop to pick up healthy foods for your family at a great price, you've got to check out Grocery Outlet Bargain Market! That's exactly what #LatinaBloggers did at the beginning of this year. So what's different about Grocery Outlet? First, Grocery Outlet offers extreme bargains on brand name merchandise with prices often up to 60% less than conventional retailers. Second, Grocery Outlet is committed to providing fresh produce and healthy food daily through the NOSH (Natural, Organic, Specialty and Healthy) section, which includes affordable products for the entire family for much less than you’d pay anywhere else.  As if that weren't enough, Grocery Outlet stores are independently owned-and-operated—many by second or third generation store owners! Don't just take our word for it; check out what #LatinaBloggers have to say and follow the #GroceryOutletLatino hashtag.
