When you want to find other people who went through the saaaaaame turmoils, joys, struggles and ENDLESS ROASTING SESSIONS you did growing up, there’s always Twitter. And this week, Latino Twitter took a look back on what it means to grow up in a Latino family:


Abuela was there to save the day:


You never had to guess what your mom thought of your friends:


WE’RE NOT YELLING. THAT’S HOW WE TALK:


This was filled with disappointment:


“¿Y tu novio?” haunts you to this day:


And yet there was only one man you really wanted…


 

Dramatic? Your mom? NEVER:


Boredom was dangerous:


…And sometimes, hearing dance music was the worst possible thing:


There’s no such thing as a “quick chat”:


Awkward phone conversations took up a good chunk of your childhood:


Sleepovers only existed in movies and on TV shows:


This question remains unanswered:


Ovens were little apartments for pots and pans:


Your family thinks you’re the most beautiful thing on the Internet:


And of course, VapoRub cures everyyyything.


What else would you add to the list? Let us know and we’ll pass it on to the entire fam in a never ending email thread.
