Fortunately we were blessed with two.

1. The Savage

She’ll flip shit at any family reunion and she’s in a war with half of her neighbors. But she’s fun, as long as you’re not one of her victims.

2. The Cheek Pincher

Even after 5 kids, 2 dogs, a cat and a house, she still hopes your mom will move on to someone else. Hey, it makes for interesting family reunions.

She’s the only one who can interfere the chancla because in her eyes can do no wrong.

6. The One Who Forgets You Exist

Because she has 47 other grandchildren, you can’t really blame her.

7. The Cranky One

It’s like she forgot what it was like to be young. It’s always too loud, you can’t touch anything in her house and visiting her feels like a chore more than anything else.

8. The One Who’s Said All But Two Words to You. Ever.

She’s super quiet, but you’ve learned to read her nods. One nod: “¿cómo estás, mija?” Two nods: “vaya con Dios.”

9. The Diva

She literally is grandma goals. Nails done, hair done, everything done. You know she’s got it going on when you’re taking contour tips from her.

After Reading this, You’ll Want to Sweep Your SO Off their Feet with a Serenata

Balloons, cake, and a piñata are great on your birthday, but what about a serenata? The tradition of serenatas is dying, but it’s up to us to bring it back.

Serenatas are the Latino version of singing telegrams.

And let’s face it, don’t we ALL want more Latino things to enjoy?

They’re old-school which means super cool vintage nowadays.

Sure. You can make a playlist for your baby, but how much more exciting to give her the gift her mother’s suitors gave? #mamiwouldbeproud

They’re guaranteed to make an impression no matter who’s around.

From the neighbor screaming because it’s too loud to your baby cry with joy, everyone is impacted by their presence.

WATCH: Rainbow Mariachi

Serenatas can be hired for so many different occasions from quinces….

To your inevitable weddings.

Your significant other will never forget it.

And it will become a story you can tell your children as they grow up.

They have the words you don’t to describe how you feel.

Some times all you can come up with is “I love you” while they can come up with “I love you because you make my heart sing.” See?

It would be a total surprise because no one uses serenatas anymore.

It’s a proud tradition that is unfortunately dying before our eyes.

They make women, men, children, tus tías, all very happy.

Just look at abuelita’s face.^^

They are as culturally relevant as La Reina and we all still love her, right?

But seriously, where can I get those threads? Asking for a friends. ?
