10 Things All Latino Moms Say, On A Regular Basis

You've probably heard at least one of these things growing up with a Latino mom.

My childhood was always a bit different from everybody else's growing up with a single mom, but in the Latino culture, my mom always had something to tell me. Your mom probably said the same things, too.

1. "Hay comida en casa" (There's food at home)

If you're ever out with your mom and are really craving a fast-food place or to eat at any other restaurant, chances are you are not going to eat there.

Latino moms will always tell you that there's food at home even when there's not.

2. "Te comes lo que hay" ( You have to eat what there is)

Being a picky eater is not an option in a Latino household.

Whatever they put in front of your plate, that's what you have to eat! There's definitely no escaping from that.

3. "Que te hago si lo encuentro yo" (The things that I would do to you if I find it)

Yep, we have all been in that situation where we can't find something and ask our mom where it is.

But, for some reason when we look for it, we can't find it anywhere.

If you tell this to your Latino mom, she has most likely threatened you in some way shape or form, telling you that she will do something to you if she finds it!

Most of the time, were fearing for our lives and praying to God that she doesn't find the thing we're looking for.

4. "O limpias o no sales" ( You have to clean or else, you're not going out)

If you have a Latino friend and for some reason they don't hang out with you that day, its most likely because their mom didn't allow them to.

Certain house chores must be completed for a Latino mom to let you go out and if the house is not clean, she will keep you until the place is spotless.

5. "Te lo tragas por que no me lo regalan ( You have to eat it because I don't get it for free)

This relates to number 2 in the list over the topic of picky-eating not being optional in a Latino household. Latino parents work hard to feed their children and they make sure that you know that!

6. "Solo cuando tengas hijos vas a entender" ( You're only going to understand when you have children of your own)

This one is kind of self-explanatory!

Latino parents believe that you will only understand why they do the things they do when you become a parent yourself.

7. "Ven aqui que no te voy a hacer nada" ( Come here because I am not going to do anything to you)

WARNING: THIS IS AN ULTIMATE LIE!

This was most likely said when you locked yourself somewhere or hid yourself from your mom, so that way you didn't receive a whoopin' from her.

But, when you began trusting her and approaching her with caution, she most likely had a "chancla" hidden in her back to spank you with----this is why most Latino kids grow up with trust issues.

8. "Te calmas o te calmo" ( Either you calm down, or I'll calm you down)

If you're crying for what your mom believes is an invalid reason, then they for sure will give you a reason to cry for if you don't calm down.

9. "Un dia me van a matar de un coraje ( One day you're going to kill me from anger)

Latino moms will get very, very, very, VERY angry when you don't listen to them.

So, they will always tell us that one day we're going to kill them due to the anger that we're causing them.

10.  "Ponte Zapatos o te vas a enfermar" (Put shoes on or you're going to get sick)

Even if you're inside the home relaxing, your mom will always want you to have slippers on. No matter what, every Latino mom believes that if you don't have slippers on when you walk around the house, you will die.

5 Thank Yous To The Mom Whose Love I Can Never Get Enough Of

Without you, I wouldn't be the woman that I am today.

76
views

You've loved and cared for me for almost 19 years. You've taught me everything that I know. You're a beautiful, goofy, and intelligent person who always puts your family first. You're so selfless. I am so lucky to call you my mom. Here are a few reasons that I am thankful for you:

1. Thank you for always encouraging me to pursue my dreams.

Giphy

When most people hear that their child wants to pursue their passion for music, they would laugh. They would tell their child to give up and pick another profession. You didn't. You have been encouraging me to keep going. You made sure I got into the college of my choosing and didn't pressure me to go somewhere else.

You've said to me one day, "I don't want to keep you from doing what you love. You're amazing, and I support you always. I love you!"

2. Thank you for listening to my constant drama and rants.

Giphy

You've always stood by me when I had a problem and never once did you blow me off. You stood by my side when I was bullied throughout my childhood. Not once did you think that I caused the problems. You always believed me. You listened to me when I was upset. You've listened to me when I lost a best friend. I knew that I could always come to you if I had no one else to listen to my problems.

3. Thank you for taking care of my siblings and I.

Giphy

Being a single mom is hard, but you never let it bring you down. You pushed to provide for your four children without having any help from the rest of our family. You sacrificed many things for us. You work overtime to make sure all the bills are paid. Or to make sure we have presents for our birthdays or Christmas.

4. Thank you for always cheering me on.

Giphy

Since I was one and a half years old, I've been singing. I stood in my car seat and sung along to "Fallin' by Alicia Keys." You stopped the car and turned to listen to me sing my heart out. Every time I had a performance, you cheered me on even when you couldn't be there. Every show choir competition. Every talent show. Every concert. I had your love and support with me.

"OMG, you did awesome. You made me smile and cry! I'm so proud of you!"

5. Thank you for being my best friend.

Giphy

I always knew that whenever I had a problem, I could come to you. I could gossip about many things that I experienced. We both had each other to lean on whenever we needed. Through breakups and loss of friends, I always had you by my side. We can joke about almost anything. Even things we shouldn't joke about. You were always there I appreciate it.

Thank you mom. You're everything to me. I love you!
