15 Signs You Are Turning Into Your Latina Mom
It's inevitable. Even after all of the times you've yelled at your mom saying you'll never be as irrational, strict, or protective as she is, sorry to break it to you, but it's happening: you're probably turning into your mom.
Don't fight it. As much as Latina moms can be a lot to deal with (isn't every mom sometimes, really?), they are admirable and take care of their kids and families like no one else can. So whether you've started using every container imaginable to store food in your fridge or you've offered someone Vicks VapoRub when they said they were sick, the symptoms are here to stay. Keep scrolling to see the signs you are turning into your mom.
When your friend gets hurt . . .
You rub where it hurts and say "sana sana colita de rana."
When someone is pissing you off . . .
When your friends want to sleep over . . .
You aren't about that life anymore and they should know better.
When a friend tries to pull one on you . . .
They can't, because they know you see it all and have eyes behind the back of your head.
When someone is sick . . .
You offer "Evaporu" because it cures everything.
When someone tries to stand up from the dinner table without finishing their food . . .
You stare them down until they finish every bite.
When someone asks what food you have to eat . . .
Your response is, "Food, that's what kind I have."
When you worry about your friends and family too much . . .
Your mind is always running a mile a minute when thinking about them.
When your friends are all posting pics of their GNO . . .
And you are so glad you're at home watching Netflix.
When you go somewhere that has free stuff . . .
You know that you're about to raid everything and take a ton home.
When you are on the phone with your cousin and a friend is nearby . . .
You ask her to say hi, too — even if they've never met.
When everything is a container . . .
You don't waste anything. Let's not get started on those old butter containers being used to save beans or salsa.
When you finished decorating your apartment and people come to visit . . .
They better look at every detail and then compliment you or you'll never have them back again.
You work harder than a lot of your friends . . .
Because hard work is your middle name, or that's what your mom told you anyway.
When you tell it like it is . . .
Your friends are always shook because your honesty is rough.
