No one makes us laugh more about our dear Latina moms than Lejuan James.

His mom is just like every Latino mom ever.

We have all seen Lejuan James’ genius Instagram, Vine and Twitter posts about what it truly means to grow up in a Latino household. The videos usually show the main character of all of our lives: mami. James’ mom totally owns and embodies the role of mami, whether she is chasing him though the house with a chancla or telling him not to cry when she dies because he wouldn’t help her with the groceries.

NBC Latino was able to get James to sit down with his mom and talk about the videos. The interview is everything. Get ready to feel all the feels. James credits his mom for all the inspiration for the videos he has created and the character he plays. During the interview, they talk about how she knows just what to say to make him feel guilty with just one sentence. It is clear to see from the video that James’ mom is so proud of her baby boy for doing what he loves and excelling in it. Bravo, dude! Now go call your mother. She would love to hear from you.

After winning gold for Team USA at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil, gymnasts Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas, and Madison Kocian, –a.k.a. the “Final Five“– have been unstoppable!

Most recently, the girls (except Douglas, who did not join) got to hang out in The White House, meet the Obamas, and even take over The White House’s Instagram account.

As you’d imagine, 16-year-old Laurie had the time of her life hanging out with LOTUS and POTUS. Here’s everything she and the girls did during their invasion of The White House.

They couldn’t contain their excitement as they stepped into The White House and took over the official Instagram account.

Really wishing Gabby Douglas joined the fun!

They posed, flexed and twirled in every room.

Werk it, queens!

Laurie strutted her dance moves in the East Wing.

Mirror Ball Trophy, she’s coming for you. 

She spent quality time with Abe Lincoln.


She and her squad got to play with the adorable Bo and Sunny.

We’re officially jealous. 

And they juggled fruits with Michelle Obama.

They’re all so talented!

Simone Biles presented President Obama with a gift on behalf of all of the athletes in Team USA.

Surfboard, surfboard ??.

And they even got Obama to do a split with them.

Well, sort of. Maybe. Maybe not.

Yup. The Final Five is goals!

And we want to be part of their squad! ??
