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 April 27th, 2015:

Life Lesson 68: Barbie movie theme songs are addictive.

Our girls love Barbie movies. Our boys will even sit through them with their sisters. Sometimes I sit down and watch a Barbie movie with the kids just to see what is going to happen next. Brad, my macho husband who likes motorcycles, hunting, and weight-lifting, can be found standing in the living room, totally engrossed in Barbie. The best part though is when we find ourselves humming or singing the Barbie movie theme songs. When the man of the house is in the kitchen singing a Barbie song, you know that these Barbie movies are truly addictive. No wonder that chick is famous!

Life Lesson 69: Don’t drink and ride.

Drinking and driving is stupid but so is drinking and horseback-riding. After our Bible meeting on Friday night we almost hit a horse and rider in the middle of the road, behind a sharp curve. We had to veer to the left to avoid a collision. It was very clear that something was off, and I knew exactly what, when I spotted the beer in the rider’s hand. The rider was drunk and the horse was not at all happy about the situation. This was the first time I encountered an inebriated horseback-rider. Don’t drink and ride!

Life Lesson 70: When Tristan yells, “Ewww!” it’s a bad sign.

I was starting on this blog post yesterday afternoon when I heard Tristan yell, “Ewww!” This is always a bad sign. Tristan was supposed to be taking a nap but instead he had removed his diaper and designed some rather creative poop artwork for his bedroom wall. Need I say more? After the clean-up and a fresh diaper, Tristan did take a long nap. This allowed me time to reflect on the joys of toddlers and poop, and to get some rest before continuing my adventures in motherhood.

    We are constantly humming Dora songs or some other cartoon. I even find my self saying phrases like them. I once heard about a guy a couple towns over from us getting arrested for a DUI because he was on riding mover and decided to go for a joy ride. Luke is at that phase too. Number 2 diaper changes have become very interesting.

    OOOH my gosh! The last life lesson! You know how all parents have that one thing that just grosses them out? Poop has always been mine especially the stinky poopy diapers. I am a nurse and it wasn’t just restricted to babies. I had some terrible gagging dealing with the adults I had to change as well. I was mortified at my reaction. lol.
