The Talk The Conversation That We Are Dreading

I have sat on this post for many days, writing, re-writing and looking for a perfect title. I’ll be honest, I was at a loss for words. How do we have this conversation with our sweet 9 year old?

¡Bienvenidos! Welcome!

I’m Frances a native Spanish speaker, married to a Southern gentleman and a multicultural & Latina mamá to a tween.  I started blogging when my son was 4 years old.

 Happy to have you here!
