We’ve been trying to teach the Bean some Spanish basics (colors, numbers,animals), so I thought it would be good to teach him a little about Cinco de Mayo. So this morning I tried to teach him about the battle of Puebla. He was kind of in and out of paying attention, but at least I tried.
Fast forward to this evening, we’re having nachos for dinner (cause ‘Mericans) and I mixed up a little tamarindo. And after he said grace, the Bean says tongith we’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo which is about the big French army and how they tried to fight the little Mexican army. And the little army had less people and less weapons but hey still fought and won even though the big army didn’t think they could. It’s amazing how much that kid is paying attention when I think he’s spaced out on me.
