I haven't found Mexico to be the most "complementary" place. No, I have encountered a lot more criticism than praise, more wrongs than rights.
So, it was Thursday was huge for me. I received not one, not two, but three compliments on my mommying. All from separate people at separate times. Women! I don't know that I have received that many in all my time in Mexico!
The first one told me she loved how I interact with the babies. She believes they will be extra-smart because of the way I am always talking and playing with them.
The next one told me she loves how I keep to my babies' sleep schedules. That I am not dragging them out all over the country at all hours of the day or night.
The last one told me that I was a very patient mama. "You know how to be a mommy". (I told her she hadn't seen me at home...)
Wow. I sure am glad I went out with Rey that day!
