Do yourself a favor and take a few minutes out of your busy schedule being an adult to watch the infectious enthusiasm of Kevin Rodriguez.

And why’s Kevin so excited? He’s starting the fourth grade! With all the responsibilities of adulthood, it’s easy to forget that there was a time when something so simple could bring us so much joy. Kevin talks about the fourth grade with the same kind of excitement adults use when talking about happy hour.

Throughout the short and sweet interview with Austin’s FOX 7, Kevin’s precociousness shines as he talks about all the important issues affecting his world: learning more, summer vacation, and the independence that comes with getting older.

“My mom thinks I’m a baby so I can’t walk to school sometimes and also she thinks I need protective gear when I need to ride a bike. I know how to ride a bike already even without protective gear!” Kevin told FOX 7.

I think we can all agree that getting older has it’s advantages, but there are times I wish I still had nap times and recess. Good luck in the 4th grade, Kevin!

Moms Are Sharing Videos Of How To Make Their Comida For Their Kids After A Mom’s Burrito-Folding Video Went Viral

Last week, California Polytechnic State University student, April Olvera posted a video sent to her by her mamá, and the video went viral, already wracking up nearly ten million views, and nearly one million likes in less than seven days.

Olvera, away at college, texted her mom, Silvia Dominguez, to say that she didn’t know how to fold a burrito, and her mom sent her a video that contained a soothing video-folding lesson.

While some couldn’t help but wonder why Olvera didn’t know how to fold a burro, her mamí’s special brand of cariño shown in the forty-second burrito-folding lesson was the focus of the comments that followed.

Other Latinas needed the lesson too!

Twitter

Another Latina Twitter user, couldn’t get over the way Olvera’s mother, Silvia, repeated the lesson.

Two guys commented on Olvera’s mom’s soothing voice, but we think @carys_arsenic nailed it.

And this guy too who points out Ms. Dominguez’s calm in the face of a world that seems to be coming apart at the seams.

When Olvera told her mother that her video went viral and inspired so many positive comments, Dominguez said, “Maybe it’s not the burrito. Maybe it’s about family and love.”

Burrito-folding-lesson mom, Silvia Dominguez, speaks Spanish in the video, smiling the whole time, clearly happy to be able to help her daughter away at college with anything, using her own phone propped up on the counter to capture the lesson.

“Okay,” she says in Spanish, holding up a corn tortilla, “Imagine that this is my flour tortilla. Add what you’re going to use, fold it from this side, fold it from that side, and roll it. Did you see that?

And then she unrolls the burro and repeats the steps: It’s a circle. Fold it here, fold it here, and roll it. Nice! Okay, bye. I love you.”

We also like how Burrito-Folding-Lesson Mom is even helping grown-ass men.
