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. Subscribe in the right sidebar.
Here are my insights and experiences as a Mexico Mom for the week of May 18th, 2015:
Life Lesson 77: A live goat can fit inside the trunk of a taxi.
Just ask Brad. While in his Bible ministry this week he caught a man putting a goat into the trunk of his taxi. There was a lady waiting nearby who entered the backseat of the taxi a minute later. We are assuming that the goat belonged to her and the taxi was transporting them both home. Maybe she had to take the goat to the vet. We will never know ;-) If you want to see the YouTube video click on the above link. The video was taken from a distance but if you look close you can definitely see the taxi driver lifting the goat up and putting it in the trunk!
Life Lesson 78: Don’t force your hand through a chain-link fence.
If you do, you will probably not get it back out without pain and embarrassment. At the Morelia Zoo this week many animals were friendly. They wanted to be petted and hand-fed grass. My kids were easily putting their little hands through the fence to pet a type of deer. I didn’t want to be left out so I pushed my hand through the fence to pet the deer too. Then everyone walked away and I was stuck standing there with my hand caught in the fence. Everyone tried to pull my hand out which caused me to yell out in pain and now I have a bruised hand. Finally Brad used his wire-cutters on his multi-tool and cut a wire so I could get my hand back! Talk about zoo vandalism. I am so happy that no one but my family was there to laugh at me :-)
Life Lesson 79: Butt acne is not cool.
We have been living in Mexico for the last year and a half without central heat or air. Normally it’s not a big deal but this is the warmest part of the year. Our truck has leather seats and our sofa is leather. I sit on leather and my butt sweats. Sorry, I can’t help it folks. One of the perks of warm weather is sweat. Despite washing with soap, I have developed an unsightly crop of butt zits. Cute huh? Not really :-( Butt zits be gone![bctt tweet=”#lifelessons with #mexico Mom – A goat can ride in a taxi’s trunk.”]
