Men are the ones wearing los pantalones in Latino households, right? Not quite. As much as they love to think so, and even brag about it, there is plenty of proof las mujeres are running it.

Guess who handles the finances?

Mom – even if daddy is the one bringing home the bacon.

Dad always turns to mom for advice.

She also decides what the family eats.

She bans fake friends, and anyone else she doesn’t like. Dad couldn’t care less.

She’s even the one to approve or disapprove of your significant other.

Guns, Baby Bottles And McDonald’s Make For One Great Happy Ending For These Cops

Two county deputies from New Mexico deserve the “Pseudo Parents of the Year Award” after rescuing three young kids from their intoxicated dad.

Deputies Roger Garcia and Sam Rodriquez stopped Jeffrey Salas who was driving drunk with all three of his kids, ages 5 and 2 years and a 2-month old — none of whom were wearing seat belts.

But the deputies went above and beyond after rescuing the kids. “What hurt me the most is when we asked (about the last time they ate), they couldn’t remember. And they were hungry,” Garcia said. So, along with three other officers, they worked together to change the diaper and mix some formula by flashlight for the baby and took the other two to McDonalds.

“I’ve always baby-sat since I was a kid, but I’ve never done it with a gun on my belt in the passenger seat of a patrol car with a rifle next to me,” said Rodriguez.

Since they were unable to locate the mom, the kids were later released to Children, Youth and Families Department.
