HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Ya viene the new school year. Increible isn't it?  Also incredible is how quickly our children are growing and how much they can learn!! Pa' eso we all know the advantage having good books can be.  The sense of wonder and accomplishment found from a well chosen libro is like no other, and you have the power to give that to your child.

For all edades, all subjects.

About the Beat Bugs
Created by Josh Wakely, Beat Bugs is an Emmy Award-winning animated kids series based on music made famous by The Beatles. The story revolves around the lives and adventures of five best friends — charming and funny childlike bugs who explore and learn in their suburban backyard home. Each episode ties in a new cover of a song made famous by The Beatles in an innocent and child-friendly fashion, sung by one of the characters or guest stars that include mega-musicians P!nk (“Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”), Sia (“Blackbird”), Aloe Blacc (“Rain”), The Shins (“The Word”), Jennifer Hudson (“I’ll Follow the Sun”), and more. Beat Bugs introduces a new generation to the music of the most influential band in rock history. www.BeatBugs.com #BeatBugs

Love of #Libros- Baila con #Books! #Usborne Feibu Fiesta!! #children #literature

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!

Babushka has always loved reading and the world of books; that's probably where my love of storytelling began. Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Ok, si, being Cubana, tambien it's in my sangre, pero the look Belle of Beauty and the Beast has when she goes into his library?  Es el mismo look Babushka has when she enters a library.  The life changing mundos & maravillas one encounters in that magical place! 

Having loved reading since childhood you KNOW BB started The Trio early with the Love of Libros and naturalmente even more so with The Grands .  When DIL told me PicaPica and Rinquincaya wanted books as presents, Babushka knew the tradition lived on.  Felizmente the tradition of good cuentos, stories worth sharing and cherishing lives on too.  Gracias to DIL for introducing us to the world of Usborne Books. Quality y que Quantity!! So much so she had to become a consultant!

These were the first books Babushka bought for Grands 5 & 6.  Very impressed with the colores y quality, creo there will be more of this type to be added to our library. BB's sure she'll be learning some new words too!  Pero the selection isn't just here, or just for this age group.  Usborne tiene from babies to teens, in all types of categories and always ready to entertain.  Speaking of entertaining, how about these last days of summer when all has been done and it's just too hot to go outside?

Y que me dicen of those long road trips with the never ending "Are we there yet?"

Hope You Can Join us Tuesday for a Feibu Fiesta where we'll be Bailando con Books.

if you can't make it to the fiesta, or want to see the selection of libros Usborne carries,

Boys Usborne Books

The joy of reading, the legacy of libros. Share the Love.

Happy Cumples & Gracias to #ABLEUnited ! #DisabilitySavings #sponsored #ambassador

This is a sponsored post between ABLEUnited and Bloggin' Mamas. As part of their Mamabassador program BB cheerfully and gratefully shares their message. Opinions are Babushka's- como always. 

ABLEUnited Year 1 anniversary

 HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Guess who turned One? Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! No, it wasn't my granddaughter La Princesa, aunque the one we're celebrating is definitivamente an important part of her life and those like her. Since last July, ABLEUnited has been helping familias with special needs children to save for their future without endangering any government ayuda they receive. Ya tienen el año and in celebration they're waving all sign up fees!

"ABLE United is Florida’s qualified ABLE program, which was established to encourage and assist people with disabilities to save private funds to support health, independence and quality of life. It allows individuals to save up to $14,000 annually without affecting benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid while the funds in the account grow tax-free. Funds can be used on qualified expenses covering a wide range of categories including housing, transportation, and basic living expenses.  "

“For years, individuals receiving federal benefits were dramatically limited in the amount of money they could save, but now, they have an opportunity to truly invest in their financial future.”

"ABLE United is different from other savings and investment options available for individuals with disabilities. Benefits include:

  • The funds saved in the account generally will not affect government benefits like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
  • The ability to use funds from the account to pay for a wide variety of expenses tax-free.
  • The account is owned by the individual with the disability, though an authorized person may establish and help oversee the account.
  • Anyone can contribute to the account, allowing the individual to save with the help of family and friends. "
ESOOOOOO!!! THAT's the part BB loves.

Abuelos, Tios, Primos, Family, Friends,
EVERYBODY is welcome to add to your loved ones future financial wellbeing.

To be eligible to open an ABLE United account, the individual must meet the disability and severity requirements outlined by the Social Security Administration, have experienced the onset of blindness or the disability before age 26, and be a Florida resident.  

Finally, a little piece of mind for those of us who worried about our niños and their mañanas.
BB is very grateful to have ABLEunited, congratulates them on their 1st year and wishes them

Happy Cumples, ♫ And Mucho, Many Mas!!!♫
