Alleke’s Birth Story (Part II of II)

This post is the second one in a set of two. To read Alleke’s birth story from the beginning, click here. The next thing I knew another nurse came and loaded up my bed for transfer. We rolled down the hallway, and he tried to make small talk with us as I moaned and made […]

Alleke’s Birth Story (Part I of II)

Today is Alleke’s first birthday, and as promised, we have a guest contributor here to help us celebrate. April (Alleke’s mom) is going to tell Alleke’s birth story. As a writer, I love a good story, and I couldn’t think of a better gift for my little girl than her mom telling the story of […]

The Beach

We were in Castellón for a few days this week (the city where Alleke was born), and Alleke got to go to the beach for the first time. She wasn’t too sure about the water (see the video), but she did like eating the sand. Maybe this was her subtle way of telling us we […]

Getting from Point A to Point B

This is the first post in a series of three about our trip back to the U.S. I suppose it didn’t help things when I told the taxi driver it was his fault we were going to miss our train. Yes, that comment may have been unnecessary. Although I wasn’t exaggerating. I knew the taxi […]

Turtle Crossing

Turtle crossing Photo by redjar. Wednesday morning I stopped by the antique shop to drop off the keys with our landlady Encarna. As I walked back to the apartment, I caught myself digging in my pocket for those keys. When I got back, April and I pulled the shutters in every room until the place […]

Saturday, November 11th had been marked on my calendar for weeks.

Ripollés Photo by Recuerdos Desconcertantes. It was our moving day. Apparently many of our neighbors also had this day marked on their calendars, but for other reasons. While I was carrying boxes out to the truck, they were busy as bees blowing up bouncy castles in our square, blocking off the streets with metal gates […]

Jitu called.

cracked ice Photo by viciousg42. He said he was in town, and he asked if he could stop by. “When?” I asked. “How about right now?” he said. I hesitated. “Hold on.” I pressed my hand over the phone receiver. “Who is it?” April asked, nursing Alleke in our green arm chair on the other […]

La Frutería

Lemons Photo by kellyandapril. I stopped in our fruit shop this evening to buy a bag of rice. One of the two “fruit ladies,” as I call them, was at the back of the shop sitting by the cash register. She was the younger one, the one with her hair dyed red. She smiled at […]
