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 November 10th, 2014:
Life Lessons #22: If you have a three-year-old or a one-year-old, you probably will need to pull a toilet.
It happened when our girls were little. I should have known that our boys would do the same. Only a few weeks after moving into our new house, we started to experience toilet problems. When Brad pulled both toilets we discovered a toy in one and a tube of toothpaste in the other. We were wondering where the toothpaste disappeared. Now we know.

Life Lessons #23: If you are going to drive in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico be prepared for an adventure.
The city was built on mines. Today the mine tunnels are roads underneath the city. It is an awesome experience unless you have a touch of claustrophobia. I loved it, however, my husband, the driver, did not. Photos are here.
Life Lessons #24: Before you leave the country, set up two online bank accounts.
That way if you leave one debit card in the foreign ATM machine, you can cancel it and transfer your money to the other account. Ahhhhh… I was so stressed out. I am happy we were able to resolve the problem quickly!
