Two Latina mothers in Washington state are furious after their children had their eyebrows waxed while at daycare. Glenda Maria Cruz and Alyssa Salgado took to Facebook to let their friends and the world know about what happened to their children. The children were at a daycare operated by the Boys and Girls Club in Pasco, Wash., according to Tri-City Herald, when they had their unibrows waxed without the parents’ knowledge.
Glenda Maria Cruz was the first one to publicly post about her disappointment with the daycare.
I really didnt wanna make this a big deal but today my life change i never thought something like these would or could…
According to The Seattle Times, a state investigation into the daycare is underway to figure out what happened and who waxed the children’s eyebrows. The Boys and Girls Club, which runs the daycare, is also looking into the matter. The daycare is at Columbia Basin College and is used by student parents so they can attend class.
An hour later, her friend, Alyssa Salgado, shared a post of her experience as well.
I take my daughter to the CBC Daycare to be cared for while I’m at school trying to focus on graduating! Then I go pick…
“I just want them to figure out who did this to my daughter,” Salgado, who hasn’t been back to class since the incident because she can’t find childcare, told The Seattle Times. “I don’t feel comfortable leaving my children there now. I didn’t think this would get this much attention. It’s hard, but I feel I have to give a voice to the voiceless ’cause these kids can’t speak.”
The mothers are advising other mothers to think twice before leaving their children at this daycare.
One thing that is definitely true about Latina moms is they are pros at multitasking. They can be cooking and watching the kids at the same time or cleaning and simultaneously be scolding you too. Where does this come from, and how can we attain this skill? If you’d like further proof of this magic that Latina moms possess, look no further than this brilliant woman who can hustle and score a date in less than two minutes flat.
Meet Laura Cisneros, a stylish mom who hustles as a Mary Kay rep.
Cisneros takes her job very seriously, which is why she’s an excellent Mary Kay rep. “I truly believe that serving customers is one of the great factors that sets us apart from every other company,” Cisneros states on her company’s website. She’s so serious about selling Mary Kay products that it seems she’s willing to reach out to her customers at the drop of a dime, even if she’s in her car.
Cisneros was recently conducting a live Mary Kay seminar in her car, and while she was speaking to her followers, a man approached her, and straight-up asked her on a date.
“Sorry to interrupt,” the stranger says in the video. “My name is Leon.” Cisneros is clearly taken aback by this person who just approached her car while doing a live chat. He goes on to say, “I just thought you were way, bonita.” So, apparently, he knows some Spanish. He asks her where she’s from (she says Mexico) and what she’s doing (working!! what else!!??). He then just goes in for the kill (not like that).
The stranger says, “sorry to be so forward, but, can I have your number?” She says yes, and it takes her a hot minute to locate her business card.
The two make some small talk including exchanging information about where she lives and whether it would be okay if he called her to go on a date, maybe grab a drink. She, again says, yes, to call me. Perhaps he didn’t hear her the first time? So she gives him her card, and he leaves, and what does she do? Go back to her live seminar. Classic!
“Sorry, Chicas,” Cisneros says about the minor interruption of her live seminar.
Yeah, they didn’t seem to mind.
Her daughter shared this hilarious encounter on Twitter, and it has been shared more than 30,000 times.
Her daughter said now that her mom’s video has gone viral they’re planning to make shirts out of her mom’s signature closing statement, “sorry, chicas.”
Cisneros is so popular now that she launched her own Twitter account!
Her daughter tweeted, “My mom really enjoyed everyone’s support, so she activated her twitter, the one and only go follow her @analauracisner4,” and added, “@MaryKay, please make my mom an ambassador or shareholder because business is booming honey.”
A few months ago, her daughter posted this sweet tribute to her mom on her birthday.
“Where to begin…as I grew older, I learned about your struggles growing up and as young women. From being a young mom dependent on my dad with no English to being fully independent and successfully running her own business, I admire your resilience and strength. You taught me how to be a mother, how to love unconditionally, how to be loyal. You’re an amazing grandmother and the best mom, happy birthday queen.”
But we know what you’re thinking. Did the mystery man ever call her?
No, he has not! What the heck? All that game for nothing. What a typical guy! Right when you think a confident man comes along to ask out an ambitious, hard-working Latina, he goes on to be a letdown. So basic. Her daughter offers up this theory, “No, he hasn’t called yet maybe he saw this and got scared.” Maybe! It would make so much sense because it is so common for a guy to be intimidated by an incredible woman. Well, it’s his loss because he clearly is missing out.
Don’t worry, Laura, we do not doubt that you’ll be scoring more dates and profitable opportunities thanks to this viral tweet.
We all know that eyebrows trends are cyclical. For every decade that there’s a pluck-everything-out-and-sharpie-it-on trend, there’s another that’s all about the au naturel “Blue Lagoon” look. For example, back in the 90s, the look du jour was pencil-thin arches that Latinas like Christina Aguilera and Cameron Diaz favored. But as the 2000s wore on and celebs like the Kardashians and Cara Delevigne grew in popularity, it was no longer the style to have barely-there brows. Instead, the fashion was big, bold, and bushy. And for those of us who were not naturally blessed with bushy brows, the only option was to march our butts into Sephora and invest in some Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dip Prow Pomade.
Anyone who’s tried ABH’s infamous Dip Brow Pomade knows that it takes a light touch to skillfully apply the makeup and avoid looking like Oscar The Grouch. With this particular brow pomade, a little goes a long way. But when you’re scrolling through Instagram for hours and seeing all of the Baddie Influencers in all their brow-licious glory, it can be easy to get carried away with your spoolie and angle brush. Hence, the over-filled brow trend was born.
Naturally, with the advent of social media, all of our embarrassing eyebrow-related missteps are now documented publicly for the world to see forever.
Recently, Twitter celeb @cakefacecutie posted an all-too accurate Tweet about the way her eyebrows used to look.
The tweet referenced the aforementioned Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Prow Pomade that had virtually taken over Instagram a mere few years ago. While the rest of us were trying to forget the brick-like ombre eyebrows that looked like they’d been tattooed onto people’s faces, @cakefacecutie was reminiscing about the good ol’ days.
Who knows how the over-drawn brow look started? A more natural-looking brow has come back into style since then, rendering the “Baddie” eyebrow look obsolete and embarrassing. But at the time, it had taken over the makeup world’s aesthetic pretty quickly and with a vengeance. We all knew that girl (or were that girl) who was walking around with perma-RBF because her brows were penciled into a terrifying scowl.
Obviously, @cakefacecutie’s tweet struck a chord, because soon her followers were sharing their own personal stories of their eyebrow evolution.
It seemed as if Twitter users were practically jumping at the chance to chime in with their makeup horror stories.
Even this girl’s cat was side-eyeing her questionable eyebrow decisions.
Of course, there were more than a few Latinas who shared their pics of their too-thick fake dark brows.
Let’s be honest: Latinas have never really been able to resist a thick brow (we’re looking at you, Frida!)
Back in the day, it seems as if no one was immune to the shiny allure of the dip-prow pomade!
As we said before, we blame the trend on the emergence of Cara Delevigne as Tumblr’s new It girl. We all wanted bold brows and if we had to resort to Sephora to get them, then that was just the risk we were willing to take.
How could we forget the concealer-under-the-brow look?
Of course, an over-done eyebrow look wouldn’t be complete without “carving out” your eyebrows with a too-light concealer to really define the look with sharp edges. Because heaven forbid one hair is out of place.
As more and more people added their memories to the Twitter thread, the photos became funnier and funnier.
Maybe the Universe allows bad brow trends to happen so we can laugh about it years later on Twitter? Just a thought.
Some people’s pictures honestly looked like they were joking, the photos were so over-the-top:
There’s something about eyebrow trends that makes people go blind to the oddity of what they’re doing to their faces. And so many of us were walking around like this without anyone stopping us. Let’s be honest: friends don’t let friends overfill their brows with ABH Eyebrow Pomade.
Unfortunately, because of the way fashion works, we’re sure that we’re currently indulging in some sort of trend that will make us look back and cringe in years to come. Maybe it’s our beloved high-waisted jeans, or the drawn-on freckles, or the resurgence of the 90s face-framing tendrils. But, one thing’s for sure: we’ll all be roasting ourselves on Twitter for thinking we looked good.
