If You’ve Ever Been With Your Mom On Black Friday You Know She Becomes A Totally Different Person

Nothing gets a Latina mom more excited than a great deal at the store. This is probably why Black Friday has become a national holiday among our mothers. It is the one time of year they are allowed to let it all out in the store to get the greatest deals of the year. There are tears, laughs, and screams every year as she hunts through the stores for the regalito that your primo has been begging for all year. Here are just some of the things that go down on Black Friday that you just can’t forget.

You pray to a few santos on Thanksgiving night because you know what is about to go down the next day.

You’re scared, but ready. You’re not sure why this has to happen every year, but every year you are more and more prepared. This is the 20th year you’ve had to do this with mom. You got this.

Mom wakes you up at 3:30 a.m. so you can start getting ready.

You have less than 30 minutes to get ready. Because you’re an expert, you slept in your shopping clothes and maybe even makeup, so you’re good to go.

And if you don’t get up the first time, the second time looks a little like this.

Just get up the first time and everything will be okay, okay? It is like your mom is not the same, sweet person she was last night at dinner being all thankful for her wonderful children. Today, it is about stuff.

There will be at least 2 hours of waiting in line in the cold.

But that’s what you need to make sure you are there on time. Plus, mami wants to continue to run down the list of things and who is doing what before the stores open. You have to get all the gifts for your prima. Your brother is after the gifts for primo Julio. Your mother is just going to grab sh*t and will figure out later who is getting what. At this point, your heart is pounding. You can’t fail.

While you are freezing, mom is all calm double and triple checking the sales flyers to her list.

You know. Just to be sure that all the months of planning and saving are worth it. If she can’t get that Blue-Ray player for 70 percent off like she expected, all hell is going to break loose.

The gates open and before you know it, your mom is pushing you into the store screaming at the top of her lungs.

it sounds like a war cry and that makes sense. You are literally going into war for some marked down stuff that mom has been eyeing for months on the Internet.

She forms an alliance with a stranger out of nowhere and you see them start to work in tandem.

Honestly, it is mesmerizing and fascinating how moms make comadres out of complete strangers. Here she was 20 minutes ago promising that nothing was going to get in her way of getting her treasures. Now she is helping some lady get a rocking chair because that same lady is going to fend off the monsters going after your mom’s prized sweaters.

Next thing you know, you’re under attack as you reached for that one toy everyone has been talking about for months.

You’re having to fight off mothers, fathers, abeulitas all in the name of getting this doll. Do you do it? Yes, because if you don’t you have to deal with your mother and telling her you didn’t get the toy. Could you imagine such a fate? No gracias.

Meanwhile, mom is fighting her own Black Friday battle across the store over some marked down kitchenwares.

She didn’t come here for a new set of cloth napkins but at 95 percent off, how can she say no? She can’t. Congratulations. You have new napkins and mom got another Black Friday K.O. under her belt. Who is she?!

She even convinced you to take things out of people’s carts that you weren’t able to get while they were still on the shelves.

Thankfully you have had time to master this skill. You don’t go to this many Black Fridays with mom and not learn how to quietly take things from people’s carts. This is every man, woman, and child for themselves. Tough luck.

And don’t you dare let anyone get in front of you at checkout while you wait for mom.

You cannot be wasting time like that. It is only 7 a.m. and there are still 3 more stores to hit before noon. Get. It. Together.

Yet, all the madness and bruises pay off when your little primo opens the one gift he has been begging for all year.

It really is moments like this that warm that heart and bring families closer together. Happy Thanksgiving and have a safe Black Friday.

Moms Are Sharing Videos Of How To Make Their Comida For Their Kids After A Mom’s Burrito-Folding Video Went Viral

Last week, California Polytechnic State University student, April Olvera posted a video sent to her by her mamá, and the video went viral, already wracking up nearly ten million views, and nearly one million likes in less than seven days.

Olvera, away at college, texted her mom, Silvia Dominguez, to say that she didn’t know how to fold a burrito, and her mom sent her a video that contained a soothing video-folding lesson.

While some couldn’t help but wonder why Olvera didn’t know how to fold a burro, her mamí’s special brand of cariño shown in the forty-second burrito-folding lesson was the focus of the comments that followed.

Other Latinas needed the lesson too!

Another Latina Twitter user, couldn’t get over the way Olvera’s mother, Silvia, repeated the lesson.

Two guys commented on Olvera’s mom’s soothing voice, but we think @carys_arsenic nailed it.

And this guy too who points out Ms. Dominguez’s calm in the face of a world that seems to be coming apart at the seams.

Twitter

When Olvera told her mother that her video went viral and inspired so many positive comments, Dominguez said, “Maybe it’s not the burrito. Maybe it’s about family and love.”

Burrito-folding-lesson mom, Silvia Dominguez, speaks Spanish in the video, smiling the whole time, clearly happy to be able to help her daughter away at college with anything, using her own phone propped up on the counter to capture the lesson.

“Okay,” she says in Spanish, holding up a corn tortilla, “Imagine that this is my flour tortilla. Add what you’re going to use, fold it from this side, fold it from that side, and roll it. Did you see that?

And then she unrolls the burro and repeats the steps: It’s a circle. Fold it here, fold it here, and roll it. Nice! Okay, bye. I love you.”

We also like how Burrito-Folding-Lesson Mom is even helping grown-ass men.

And because imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, here’s a video made by the author for her son on his way to college in the fall.
