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 December 22nd, 2014:
Life Lessons 37: Mexican Coke-Cola tastes different from US Coke-Cola.
I am pretty sure the ingredients are slightly different. I think the Mexican Coke-Cola ingredients are more natural. Not that it is much better for your health, with all the sugar it still contains. I am not alone in this taste test, though. Others agree that Mexican Coke-Cola tastes different. From what I hear, Dominican Republic Coke-Cola tastes different too.
Life Lessons 38: Tristan is The Diaper Houdini.
First, his pants come off, and then his diaper. I put his diaper on backward and it still comes off. I put him in full body pajamas and the diaper ends up inside the foot of his pajama leg. The only solution is onesies that button between the legs. And I dare not forget to change him into a onesie. If I do, we wake up to a half naked baby who needs a shower, a load of stinky laundry, and fun times disinfecting his crib.
Life Lessons 39: Sawyer’s potty-training is not complete.
I realized this when I saw him pee on my fig tree in the back yard, sprinkle on his foot, and then use my freshly washed, line-drying sweater to clean his foot. He may be four but the game is still on. And guess who told him it was okay to pee on my fig tree? His father! I asked Brad about this and he said they were conserving our water supply.
