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 September 29, 2014 as we are finding a home in Mexico, dealing with lots of rain, and parenting four kiddos.
Life Lessons #4: Finding a home in Mexico for rent isn’t easy.
Granted, I am picky. But some owners tend to ask for blood… putting down 21000 pesos for the first payment on a 7000 peso a month property is asking too much for a missionary family of six. At least that is my opinion. True they don’t know me, but I don’t know them either! Why would we give them a 15000 peso deposit that we may never see again?
Life Lessons #5: Rainy season is seriously rainy.
Sure in Kentucky we have our share of rain during the Spring months. I just didn’t know how much it rains in the mountains of Mexico! I have had my laundry on the line for five days now and it is still wet. On the plus side , everything is green! And at least it doesn’t rain all day. The sun does peek out for a few hours, just not enough to dry my clothes.
Life Lessons #6: Being a consistent parent is hard.
I have been trying to let my yes mean yes and let my no mean no, with my kids these last few days. This has always been difficult for me. Partly because I have adult ADHD. My oldest daughter is really pushing my buttons, but I told her, mommy has to make some changes! It’s funny how kids can twist things around and turn them against you.
