This Dad Turned Their Garage Into A Disco For His Mija To Escape An Argument With Her Mom

We all know that where there is love, there is war. Disagreeing with your parents is normal, and so is fighting with your parents. We love the way one dad intervened an escalating fight between his daughter and wife, and so do 9 million other Twitter users.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her dad dancing in their garage to Lady Gaga with an actual disco ball and the video went viral. With over 800k likes and 9 million views, it’s safe to say the world prefers this alternative to luchando con madre.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her father dancing to Lady Gaga and he is the clear winner.

They spent an hour dancing out the bad vibes left behind by the argument. It is one of the greatest ways we have ever seen someone deescalate an argument. 10/10

That said, the comment section lit up in good and bad ways.

Of course, most of the world just straight up stans this duo. Can’t imagine why anyone would use their garage in any other way.

Some were really feeling for how her mom might be feeling a little left out at this point.

If lighthearted bonding, while you’re raging on the inside isn’t painful enough, the video went viral. Thanks, internet, for always getting in the middle of relationships.

Reynoso wasn’t going to have anyone dissing her mami, as any good Latino child.

Nice comeback, Reynoso. Life is in session, folks. Anything perfect sounds boring as hell. Also, perfect relationships are not a real thing.

Ivana took her 15 minutes of fame to plug three important issues to her.

Reynoso wanted to take the opportunity to remind folks that trans rights are human rights, to believe women and stop littering. Solid messaging. She even added her Instagram handle to the tweet for good measure.

With that, the standom grew.

Reynoso probably knew that this video would become the news of yesteryear by the end of the day, and jumped on the moment to normalize the issues dearest to her. That’s a strategy for the greater good right there.

Folks were inspired to see such a light and fun father-daughter relationship, as well.

For those of us who don’t speak with our fathers or who never experienced playfulness with a parent, getting a glimpse into an hour of plain fun in the garage is like a breath of fresh air.

The comment threat is half made up of praise and adoration.

Wait for it. You know the other half is going to be straight hate (as in puro hate, that happens to single-handedly be from straight people).

Then there’s this men’s rights activist.

This is a case of #BlackLivesMatter. Yes, sure, all lives matter, but that is mega tone-deaf. Men are assaulted, and it’s horrible and it shouldn’t happen. However, the U.S. is fighting like hell right now over abortion rights.

Allies were here to diss the transphobic trolls.

@vinny_427 / Twitter

Of which there were far too many. Thank you @paranoidangel18, for stopping hate in its tracks.

Reading a comment thread is always going to be painful, but is nearly unbearable when transphobia is involved.

@twinklouee / Twitter

Reynoso brought up an important message, which in turn gave us all a reminder that the hate for trans people is very real in this country. We need more Ivanas plugging the cause.

In conclusion, we stan a woke, progressive Disco Queen.

Thank you for sharing this moment of fun, and giving us all one more option to turn to when tensions start running high. ????????????

People Are Crying About Not Being Able To Celebrate Cinco De Mayo This Year And They Need To Chill

Everyone was so excited about 2020. There are multiple Friday the 13ths, Cinco de Mayo is on Taco Tuesday, Halloween and Christmas are both on Saturday, and so many other wonderful things. Well, now that the world is on lockdown, some people are freaking out because they can’t drink margaritas and wear culturally offensive costumes. Here’s what you might see on Twitter.

The world is battling COVID-19 but some people are more upset that they might not be able to enjoy Cinco de Mayo.

That’s right. The holiday that American celebrate as if it was a big deal in Mexico is in jeopardy of not happening because of COVID-19. Cinco de Mayo is really not a big deal but it does give a lot of people an excuse to go day drinking with all of their friends while enjoying faux Mexican culture.

The realization is really ruining some people’s self-isolation.

Like, chill, y’all. You can ask Instacart or Postmates to bring you some taco and margarita ingredients and you can have a full Cinco de Mayo safely in your home. This is all a part of that important mission to flatten the curve and keep people safe.

Like, it is really sending people into a full freakout.

Trust us. We all know how much it sucks to be locked into your apartment or home with nowhere to go and nothing to do. However, it is best to just power through 2020 so we can all have an amazing 2021 with everyone we know and love.

Some people are even more concerned about having to put in the work and create their own Cinco de Mayo.

Honestly, just order a taco making kit and some hamburger meat. Before you know it, you will be having the time of your life if you add just the right amount of tequila to the menu.

Now, that we have calmed you down about Cinco de Mayo, let’s go ahead and start getting ready for the rest of 2020 to possibly be canceled.

There was a lot of hype about 2020 as 2019 came to a close. We were all so excited to leave 2019 behind us and finally have a wonderful year. It was going to be our year. However, it seems that 2020 is not going to be our year unless we work together to stop COVID-19. Until then, 2020 is the year we spend indoors and practicing social distancing so we can move forward and get ready for a stellar 2021.

Latino Father And Daughter Both Born On February 29, Break Record On Day Of Her Birth

Latino Father And Daughter Both Born On February 29, Break Record On Day Of Her Birth

GMA / Twitter

For one dad and daughter duo, it really is like father, like daughter.

Being a Leaper, someone born on February 29, is already a rarity as is. Because February 29 occurs on the calendar only every four years, odds of being born on a leap day are just 1 in 1,461. So what’s more rare and exciting than having a birthday that lands on a Leap Year? Having two family members born on one. Enter Ivan Peñaloza, 32, and his newborn daughter Camila Peñaloza.

The father and daughter share the rare coincidence of being born on February 29th.

Camila Peñaloza was born at Mercy San Juan Medical Center the day of what is technically her father’s eighth birthday. While the likelihood of being born on February 29th is just 1 in 1,461, the chances of having a double birthday is a chance of only one in two million double birthday.

In a statement through the Mercy San Juan Medical Center, Ivan Peñaloza said that he counted the coincidence as a blessing.

“I prayed to God for my little baby girl and now we are going to share this amazing bond for the rest of our lives and I am just so happy,” he said in a statement through the hospital.

To celebrate her special birthday, the staff at the hospital gave Camila a leapfrog outfit and sang happy birthday to her and her father.

“Having a child is such a special experience already but it has been that much more magical,” Jennifer Rebollar Cortez, mother to Camila, also said in a statement.

“We feel incredibly fortunate to share in this special, life-changing moment with this family. Our heartfelt congratulations and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness with their new bundle of joy,” Michael Korpiel, the president of the Mercy San Juan Medical Center, said in a statement.
