11 GIFs That Perfectly Explain What Happens When You Watch TV With A Latina Mom

CW

You tell yourself it’ll be fine, that just because last time was a disaster doesn’t mean this time has to be. That’s right. You’re about to watch TV with your Latina mom.

No matter how many times you tell yourself you’ll never watch TV with her again, you always find yourself back on the couch, hiding your face behind your hands. It’s fine, it happens. We won’t judge you! We’ll just commiserate. Here are 11 GIFs that perfectly describe what it’s like to watch TV with a Latina mom:

1. She insists on listening with the volume at full blast.

It’s never loud enough, and she can never hear.

2. She yells at anyone who walks in the room during the show.

You’re humiliated for your brother and papi and the family dog, but honestly, THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO WALK INTO A WAR ZONE.

3. She basically repeats every single thing you’ve literally just seen.

You have to constantly say, “MA! You know I’m watching the same thing, right?” And so then she directs her yelling at you.

4. She gets mad at you for talking during the commercial breaks.

It shouldn’t matter because they are COMMERCIAL BREAKS, but to your mother, you’re still disrupting “el show.”

5. She talks about the characters as if they’re real people.

No matter how many times you try to reason with your mother and explain that they aren’t real people, she refuses to listen.

6. She pauses every five minutes to go to the bathroom and acts like it’s not a big deal.

Take a deep breath. Relax. Try not to flip out on your mother because WHO IN THE WORLD HAS TO PEE EVERY FIVE MINUTES?!

7. She asks you for an IMDb rundown of every single actor that pops up.

You try so hard to be patient and answer every question, but when your mom makes a big deal about the actor playing “silent background due #2,” it takes everything inside of you to not flip your lid.

8. There are times she asks you to recap the entire plot. Again. And again.

“Why is that man holding a gun?” “Y esa mujer, who is she?” “What show is this?” MOM!

9. Sometimes you find out she’s been watching episodes without you, even though she INSISTS you watch together.

HOW. DARE. SHE.

10. …And because she’s ahead, she then SPOILS the episode for you.

But, if you’re being honest, watching TV with your mom is kind of the best. Although you’ll never admit it because you’ll never hear the end of it. Ever.

Plus, eventually…

11. You realize you’re doing ALL THE SAME THINGS your mom does.

Can’t even try to fight it. We all turn into our moms, yelling at the TV and asking you to summarize the entire plot every 10 seconds.

You Won’t Make It Through This ’90s Latino List Without Smiling

From hip fashion trends to the revolution of digital technology, the 1990s was a real game changer for everyone. The decade introduced us to some of our favorite Latino artists, telenovelas and trends that still have us swooning today. Don’t believe me? Here’s a small reminder of some things we were obsessed with in the early ’90s. In case you somehow forgot.

1. Let’s take it way back to 1990 when “Nubeluz” was the ultimate children’s TV show.

“Sube a mi nube, nube luz… su su su sube, su su su sube!”

2. And when Mexican group Garibaldi gave us major squad goals.

Not only did we obsess over their catchy tunes, such as “Que te la pongo,” but their 1993 movie “Dónde quedó la bolita” was our favorite flick at the time.

3. Gloria Trevi’s 1991 hit “Pelo Suelto” was our anthem.

Despite mom thinking her music was una “mala influencia” and made us close our eyes every time she came on TV.

4. From 1991 to 1993 “El Show de Xuxa” was everything we obsessed over.

Best. TV. Show. EVER!

5. We were so obsessed with Xuxa that almost every young girl owned her very own pair of “Xuxandalias.”

The Xuxa jelly sandals were life!

6. Speaking of fashion trends, remember these statement vests?

Ricky Martin, Chayanne and even A.C. Slater from “Saved By The Bell” had us obsessing over their vests!

7. The ’90s gave us the Trilogía de las Marías: “María Mercedes,” “Marimar” and “Maria la del Barrio.”

We obsessed over Thalía, Eduardo Capetillo, Fernando Colunga and Itatí Cantoral as the ultimate telenovela villain, Soraya Montenegro.

8. Los Del Río dropped a party jam that had everyone dancing in the early ’90s, the “Macarena.”

And we still know the dance moves. Ain’t no shame.

9. If you did not obsess over “Agujetas de color de rosa” you had no childhood!

A lot of great teen telenovelas were born in the ’90s. But none can ever compare to “Agujetas de color de rosa.”

10. Enrique Iglesias (and his lunar) became an international sensation in 1995.

We’ve been obsessing over the Spanish crooner ever since his sweater, mole and mushroom hair days!

11. Fey slayed the early ’90s with “Media naranja.”

“Tu mi complemento, mi media naranja, ya te quiero sin cruzar palabra!”

12. Shakira.

She’s had a bazillion hits since the her first studio album, “Pies Descalzos,” but we still have these songs in rotation 21 years later.

13. And of course, Selena Quintanilla!

Because the ’90s are not the ’90s without the iconic “Queen of Tejano.”
