Life Lessons with Mexico Mom – Window Washers at Stoplights

Weekly Life Lessons with a Mexico Mom – As a wife of one and a mom of four, it seems like I am always learning and discovering! I know I am not alone. Let’s just admit it: The world is a big place, life is a lesson, and children can be the best teachers. This will be my standard introduction for Life Lessons. I hope you join me every week for a hearty laugh, a deep thought, or maybe both if I am really on the ball.


Here are my insights and experiences as a Mexico Mom for the week of October 6, 2014:

Life Lessons 7: Mexican mosquitoes mean serious business. 

It is amazing how something so small can be such a blood-sucking little pest! In the States I never got a mosquito bite. Here I am a human buffet! Last night it was so annoying I couldn’t sleep. I went on a mosquito killing quest and killed about 20 of them around one am. But it was too late. This morning, Sawyer and I have a fair share of pink, bumpy bites :-(

Life Lessons 8: Don’t let the stoplight window washers climb on your hood. 

If they have to climb on your vehicle to clean it then they are going to scratch your paint job with their belt buckle. Your husband will be irritated with you for letting them do it. Just put your foot down and say no! Don’t smile at them and don’t look them in the eye. Be aggressive but don’t run one over either.

Life Lessons 9: Star Trek can make me cry. 

My wonderful husband is a Sci-Fi geek. The thing is… sometimes I can be too. Today when we watched an old episode of Star Trek Deep Space Nine, a longtime crew member died. And I cried. We had to watch two more episodes with good endings just so I would feel better. I thought I caught Brad crying too but he said he was just trying to stay awake ;-)
