These Gift For Mom Are The Perfect Way To Say You Love Her

Mom always says the same thing every year, “Don’t get me anything.” However, we also know that it is best to go ahead and get her something. First of all, it shows her that you love her so much. Second, if you have siblings, it makes you better than the rest.

We love our moms and understand that this world would not work without her. Dad never knows where it is. You can never make your beans like hers. No one will ever fight to defend you like her. So, let her know how important she is by giving her this shirt as recognition of everything she does.

Okay. This one is a little too much for some. However, imagine your mother’s joy when she unwraps this shirt for Christmas. Maybe this is how you tell her you are pregnant. Or you just give it to her to let her know that it is in your overall plan.

Here’s the thing. Moms are the only ones who could find anything in the house. However, there are things that you need to ask your father for. Even in those moments, we go to our mothers and even they need a break from all of the family bothering them.

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

Michelle Gonzaes / YouTube

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.

Twitter

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.
