CAR-MINE WITH A LONG I PEOPLE!!

That is what I feel like saying to people. You wouldn't believe how many people say Carmen. Even after seeing it or after hearing it!!! Why, this is not a difficult name? Yes it is not common, but it is not made up!! It sounds just like it is spelled. MINE!! Not MEN! It is in the top 1000 baby names for 2006 so I know there are other little boys with the same name. Learn basic English and then try again! Sorry to be so harsh, but I am sick of people not pronouncing his name right! I can't even imagine what my mom went through with Tonia! Long O. Maybe I will start puting the little dash over the I!

My favorite is when people type your name in your email address and then still spell it wrong when they address the note. Oh well...good luck with Carmine.

I’m reaching out to talk to parents about the Maya & Miguel program as part of a marketing project I’m working on with Scholastic. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Maya & Miguel, a show on PBS in the afternoons -- http://pbskidsgo.org/mayaandmiguel -- that emphasizes cultural diversity and language learning.

I found your post and thought I’d reach out to say hello and ask if you’d like to receive a free Maya & Miguel DVD. If you’d like to receive the DVD just email me at Kerri at boldmouth.com with your address and I’ll have it shipped it out to you.

If you do choose to blog about Maya & Miguel show or episodes on the DVD, please make it clear how you received the information. Our goal is to be open and honest with everyone we reach.
