Completely guilty! I used to complain endlessly when my mother and sisters would watch "Days of our Lives" yet now I can't wait to see "Una Familia Con Suerte"!

I feel really guilty now. I have avoided watching telenovelas and Spanish soap operas for a long time. My flimsy excuse is I dislike English soap operas and have always doubted that I'd like Spanish soap operas any better. I think I may have to start watching them.

I have also read an article in the Huffington Post about something that happened in Italy. The article is in English, but it links to the original Italian article in Corriere della Sera twice. This made my day!

...when your 5 year-old's 3 three favorite songs aren't even in your native tongue. And only two of them are in a language you are actively studying!

My son's three favorite songs right now are:
*Sabes - Selena (Spanish)
*Einmal noch schlafen - Anajo (German)
*太空警察 - Cosmos People [宇宙人] (Mandarin)

When your horse-loving mother asks you to visit some tack shops on your trip to Argentina, and you come
dangerously close to ordering a Spanish/English dictionary 'for horsemen' that lists more than 10,000 terms.

...when you were actually *happy* to find that the downloaded Korean TV show you watched this evening had 3.5 minutes of commercials at the beginning as well as a few commercial breaks during the show (as most encoders remove the ads first, so you rarely get to see Korean commercials).

...when you temporarily forget what language you're reviewing vocabulary in, and give the answer in Croatian, German, Esperanto, and Japanese before remembering that you're actually studying Italian.
