Un tamal es un platillo mexicano generalmente hecho de masa de maíz relleno de diferentes cosas como pollo, flor de calabaza, carne de rez, rajas y mil cosas más. También hay tamales de papa y otras cosas.

Thanks for your support. But I already have three... and I think it's time to call it a day.

The answer is yes, as Rusty already knows (but he was quite the gentleman and let me answer myself ).
Despite the fact that both me and my husband are Spanish, I have always talked to my three kids in English,from the very first day, nursery rhymes, tales and all... And what is surprising, even to me, is that they talk to each other in English all the time. Well, the little one still uses his own version of Spanglish.
