10 Things we learned about parenting in 2013
I have found that as a parent, I never ever will become an absolute expert because there is always something to learn. As humans, as women, and as mamis we should always be evolving and becoming better, qué no? I want to grow and learn, even if it is learning from my mistakes. Here at MamásLatinas, we've learned a lot about parenting in 2013 and it has been our pleasure to share that information with you. Before we move on to more learnin' in the new year, let's take the time to review some of the parenting lessons we've learned.

Here are 10 things we learned about parenting in 2013. If you missed any of these great posts, I highly recommend you give them a read you never know what you will learn. Enjoy!
- Giving babies weird names is not so weird anymore. Think North, Cheese, or Febreeze (I totally made up the last one, but watch someone will use it eventually).
- Being a parent turns you into an idiot and it's totally normal. You don't become a total idiot, it's just that you have so much on your plate now, you prioritize the times you are smart.
- You can learn everything you need to know about parenting in 60 seconds. Okay, maybe not everything, but you can get to the heart of the matter.
- Gisele Bundchen breastfeeds like no other mother. Some people hate her for it, but she can't help who she is.
- There are signs that you were raised by Latino parents. I admit, I resemble these signs.
- Everyday items in your home can kill your kids. Some of these items are quite surprising.
- Our kids love us and admire us so much more than we suspect. I found this so touching and inspiring.
- If you don't bathe your baby, people will freak out! A mother admitted to being too busy to bathe her baby and the internet lost its collective mind.
- You can do crazy things with breastmilk. Shoot, I barely had enough to feed my babies with, I wasn't about to make any of this nonsense.
- The secret weapon of Latino parents is revealed, which will come as no surprise if you were raised by Latino parents.
