The ‘Are You Going To Miss Your Mom’ Kid Is Back Two Years Later And He Is Ready For School This Time

This time, he admits he will miss his mom.

Andrew Macias became Internet famous two years ago when he was interviewed about his first day of preschool. The boy, who was 4 years old at the time, was being interviewed by Courtney Friel of KTLA 5 in Los Angeles when she asked Macias if he would miss his mom. What followed was a shocking revelation for the toddler who, until then, wasn’t aware he would be going to school without his mom. Now, two years later, and with more experience under his belt, Macias is venturing into first grade and is ready for his first day.

Since first appearing on KTLA, Macias has not only become a meme, he’s also shown up in a “Tosh.O” skit. The original clip of Macias was used by eBay for a commercial. Even his mother, Patricia Macias, who was right off camera, was surprised at how quickly the clip of her son grew on the Internet.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, just an interview, nothing is going to happen,” Patricia told KTLA. “And then suddenly, an hour, two hours after – ‘Oh, he’s famous now. He went viral.'”

As for how Andrew is handling the upcoming school year, he confidently says “yes” when asked if he’ll miss his mom.

That’s right kids. It’s officially back to school time.

But hopefully, like Andrew, you’ve grown and become more confident in what the year has in store for you. Good luck in 1st grade, Andrew!

Here’s How One Child Spent His Birthday Asking People To Help Him Raise Money To Close The Camps

Children are facing inhumane and deadly conditions in detention camps on the southern border being compared to concentration camps. The crisis is becoming a part of daily conversations and a sad legacy of the Trump administration. That’s why people are trying to fight back by giving money to organizations fighting the atrocious conditions created by the administration’s deadly policies.

“We have joined this birthday with an organization that helps the children detained at the border,” reads the invitation. “If you want to get me a gift, then unite with me and give money as my gift.”

The birthday is everything you would expect from a 4-year-old birthday, complete with a mordida.

The only real departure from a typical child’s birthday party was the humanitarian call to action. The birthday boy put his money where his mouth is by wearing a mitú Close The Camps t-shirt. The shirts, made in partnership with RAICES, is raising money for the immigration service organization with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting RAICES.

His mother made it a point to share exactly what they were doing for everyone checking out her Instagram story.

“We decided to host a party with a purpose for Ian. With his consent,” she wrote on Instagram. “No games, no clothes, no gifts, but let’s give financial donations to the organization RAICES that helps children who are separated from their parents are the border and puts them in cages.”

Honestly, no one could rock this t-shirt better than Ian.

Children younger than the birthday boy are spending untold amounts of time in horrendous conditions in camps along the southern border. Some children have died because of the conditions, like being denied medication, toothbrushes, and beds.

Happy birthday, little dude.

Your parents are clearly very proud of you and the stand you are taking to help children just like you.

This Little Girl Destroyed Her Mom’s Limited Edition Manny MUA Palette And We Feel The Pain

Kids say the darnedest things, and they do some messy things too. For the most part, you have to forgive them — they are kids after all. However, it’s one thing to spill Cheerios all over the floor and quite another when they get into expensive and limited edition makeup.

This little girl could not help but get her mom’s palette and place it everywhere.

@HayleyBalls_ tweets that she had it with her daughter after she destroyed her Manny MUA makeup pallet, which by the way is no longer for sale. If you thought just ruining the makeup was bad enough, it is impossible to find this in any stores.

At first, viewers can’t tell the extent of the damage but it’s clear that the little girl put it all over her hands and her eyes.

She clearly has seen her mother put the eyeshadow on her eyes with her fingers, like most of us. However, most of the precious makeup is all over the table. Her mom was livid but what can you do?

Of course, Manny MUA saw the travesty and reached out to the mother to offer her a little something.

Look at this amazing artist saving the day. He just sauntered right in to the thread and gave the mom something that will definitely make up for losing her limited edition palette.

Other moms chimed in to let the OP know that she is not alone in her devastation because kids obviously hate nice things.

Why do kids love to get into makeup? It’s like their little hands just love the feeling of fresh eye shadow and blush. Tbh, we all did this to our mom’s makeup and it is almost like we are dealing with the payback we deserve.

It is a soul-crushing moment when you first realized your favorite makeup palette and your little one are nowhere to be found.

It seems like it is time for someone to create a company that specializes in makeup safes. Or even packaging for makeup that is childproof. We make sure they can’t get into medicine, shouldn’t we do the same for makeup?

This video is also serving as a form of birth control for some women.

Now we know why they say kids are expensive. Sure, there is a lot of money that goes into the feeding, clothing, and educating of the little rugrats. However, the bulk of the money wasted, I mean spent, on the kids is replacing things they break or lose.

Truly a #NeverForget moment for mothers and makeup lovers everywhere.

This little girl is probably going to have to go to therapy after this. If not her, then her mother is definitely getting some help to process everything that’s happened.

Cute, but damn!

The good thing is that she got it replaced with something. We don’t know what but we are sure Manny MUA really helped the mother feel better about her heart crushing moment.
