WAIT A MINUTE, YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW LIVES WITH YOU?
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and honoring this cherished member of the family has always been one of the most important aspects of Mexican culture.
It’s as if time stands still on this one day to celebrate the matriarch of the family; be it mother, grandmother or, if you are lucky to have longevity in your family, great grandmother!
So, it should come as no surprise that many multi-generational families here in Mexico all live under the same roof. Sort of.
Your family compound may have separate homes sharing the same property, it may be a luxury home with detached casita allowing private quarters for mom or simply a fully contained wing off the main house providing a quiet space for your beloved mother-in-law. Resort living designed for enjoyment by the entire family.
And look at it this way – with mom or mom-in-law close by……
*Your favorite meals from childhood are only a holler away.
*A built-in babysitter who truly loves your children and is always available.
*Family get-togethers are easy to organize.
*The motherly advice you have always relied on is readily available. (sometimes without even asking)

Heading out of town up the Pacific coast discover Casa Sonido del Mar, MLS 19-2930, in the pueblo magico town of Todos Santos.

One thing to keep in mind when celebrating this important event is that Mother’s Day in the USA is always the second Sunday of May and El Dia de la Madre in Mexico is always on May 10th. This year we all get to celebrate on the same day, Sunday, May 10, 2020 to honor the huge role mothers play in our lives.
