Dora (and Diego) Says…

October 21, 2008

It’s happened to most of us with pre-school age kids. That darn Dora said something in Spanish,  your three-year-old picked up on it and is now saying it over and over and over again. And despite 5 years of Spanish between high school and college you cannot for the life of you figure it out. Well here is my little guide to help you decipher what it is Dora is saying {and sometimes Diego too}.
