The Mami Solution

Ed. note: Click headline link to see the video.

This is Liz from the popular site, Thoughts of a Mommy, about  motherhood, cool giveaways, reviews y la vida.

She’s fabulous and funny and trivia note: I have shared a bed with Liz at a blog conference. (We’re frugal!) She doesn’t snore. And she promises never to tell if I ever did.

Liz sometimes does video blogs entitled Ay, las Mamas! And, you guessed it, it’s all inspired by her Mama, who lives next door.

This video, about the Mexican dust pan, one is my favorites.

Ay, los Latinos!

Watch the video and then let’s talk about your family? What kind of stuff like this do they do?

Share, por favor!

And it’s the Colombian dustpan, too.

So funny to find things to be able to relate to.

N’hombre!!! Oh my gosh – I am feeling especially Latina-ish today because I don’t own a dust pan and I use a paper plate, too!

ROFLMAO. I thought that was just me being cheap. I know dust pans are only like $1, but I never wanted to waste money on one. jajaja…

Love the video, Liz. You’re hilarious :)

BTW – I did have a dust pan a long time ago – it came with the broom. What happened to it? Suegra broke it many years ago when she tried to use it to shovel snow.

My mom used to use a paper towel, wet it on the edge and lay it flat on the floor. Nicer clean look than a raggedy paper plate!

Too funny! I admit I have used a paper plate before, oh! and i’ve done the wet paper towel mentioned above! I learned both tricks from mi amiga de Colombia. I have to say…. “way to think outside of the box!”

Say it with me, Ay, las mamas!

Liz, totally do more video!

And, in my family, it is usually my dad that does this stuff.

Cassy says:

Ahhh yes. “Pasame ese cartoncito” she would say, when she couldn’t find the dustpan. Yup, my mami too! Ay, las mamas!

I have done the wet paper towel… It actually gets more of the dust than a regular dust pan. Never used a paper plate but have used a piece of cardboard or paper.
I love it!

Jajajaja! Mine has asked for “el periodico majado hija”, whenever we couldn’t find a dustpan when visiting someone. Mamis are resourceful, yup they (we) sure are!

Love the vlog Liz. And your profile photo.

LOL! Liz is so funny. Her mamá reminds me of that true and tried Latino remedy of “blowing” on a cut because you don’t have bandaids in the house.
