Here Are The 20 Things That Trigger Latina Moms Like Nothing Else

Whether it’s something that you did, said or forgot to do or say, there are many things guaranteed to piss your latina moms off. Here’s a list so that you can try to avoid them.

If there’s one thing that drives your mom crazy, it’s when she sees you using your phone all day instead of helping her clean.

Hint hint: put that phone away and start cleaning.

So if you haven’t cleaned your room from top to bottom, don’t even think about asking her if you can go out.

The cleaner your room is, the higher the chances of your mom letting you go out.

But if she does give you permission to go out, you better answer her phone calls… Or she’ll lose it.

For your mom it’s not just a missed phone call – it’s life or death.

Also make sure to get home by the time she tells you to, OR ELSE…

You can expect her to be waiting at the foot of the door, pissed AF.

If you really want to test your mom’s patience, tell her “qué” instead of “mande.”

I dare you.

Even worse, go ahead and get a tattoo without telling her.

Just some advice, make sure you wear running shoes.

When it comes to dinner time, keep in mind that the last thing your mom wants to hear is “no tengo hambre.”

There’s no way she’s going to let you put any food to waste.

She also never wants to hear you complain about her food.

It’s probably best if you just stay quiet and eat.

If she gets mad at you for saying these things, maybe helping her out in the kitchen will make her happy.

Unless you burn the rice.

If you burn the frijoles, your life is basically over.

This is probably your mom’s worst nightmare.

Even the little things, like finding an empty gallon of milk in the fridge, will drive your mom crazy.

Just throw the empty gallon away. It’s not that difficult.

She’ll also get pissed if you leave all of the lights on.

Because you’re not paying for the electricity bill.

But the worst thing you can do to Latina moms is forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer.

At this point, just be prepared to get yelled at.

Second to that is asking if you can eat out for dinner.

Or wondering out loud why you can’t have McDonald’s.

And let’s never forget every time you asked to spend the night at a friend’s house.

Why would you ever want to sleep in someone else’s bed?

When you try to walk around ungroomed…

Stop plucking my eyebrows. Stop fiddling with my hair. JK-you’ll never actually tell them to stop unless you want to be smacked or make them cry.

Or trying to get sympathy for something that was clearly your fault. Like falling?

mitú

They’re never going to comfort you after you take a fall because you should have known better. And now you do. #parenting

Being out late.

They will worry themselves sick and then expect you to “know what you did.” We can only assume motherhood makes your mind go to crazy places.

Anytime they hear you question having to go to church.

Not going to church is not even an option in my house. The day I broke my ankle, I was forced to hobble in there. Gimme a mom that reads me Bible pages. ????

Show Mom How Much You Love Her With These Sweet Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is just one of the days in the year when we show our mom how much we love her. She gave us life and isn’t shy about reminding us. Why not make this day a little special with a nice gift? Here’s a little guide to get you started. Use code momdaywam2021 for a discount on all of your mom merch!

Love You Mom Mug | $14.99 – $17.99

mitú

There was nothing more dreadful than not being able to find something. You just knew that when you asked your mom for help that it came with a lot of strings attached. The mere idea of mom searching and finding it sent us into a wild frenzy trying to find it before she got to the room.

This mug is the perfect reminder of those mildly scary moments of missing remotes and socks. Now, as an adult, you can all look back and laugh because it isn’t that scary anymore, right? 😨

Nadie Me Ayuda En Esta Casa | $24.99

mitú

You can’t forget this absolute classic. This shirt is one of the most relatable gifts you can give your mother. She is always doing everything for everyone and no one wants to help. This shirt will show that you acknowledge that you don’t do enough and appreciate just how hard she works.

Now, this doesn’t mean you can stay not helping. Let this be the start of you changing some of your own practices and helping your mom around the house. it is never too late.

Mom, Ma, Ama, Madre, Mujer Mug | $19.99

mitú

A nice little mug with mom in all the ways we say it is just a nice addition to your mom’s coffee mug collection. It will definitely bring a smile to her face every time she sees it because it just shows how much you are thinking of her.

Pregúntale A Tu Papá Tee | $24.99 – $26.99

mitú

How many times have you heard your mom say this? It is never when you need to find something because dad never knows where to find stuff. That is just a cold hard fact about life in a Latino household. This was always posed to you when you asked mom to go to a sleepover or anything that required approval.

This will not only make your mom laugh, but dad will chuckle as well. After all, he knows that his word is only as good as his vieja will let it be. Lol.

Best Amá Ever Mug | $14.99 – $17.99

mitú

Let your mom brag all the time, any time. This mug is perfect for her to take to work so that everyone in her office sees that she is, indeed, the best amá ever. I’m sure that people will think that their mom is the best but you know that your mom is the best. This will soon be the ultimate status symbol.

Quiero Nietos Unisex Tee | $24.99 – $27.99

mitú

We all know that mom (and dad) can’t wait to have nietos to spoil endlessly. This shirt will give them a physical way to constantly remind you that they can’t wait for those little ones. You might regret giving her a shirt that she can wear every time you go to visit her but she will love it. Maybe it is just a quick laugh but we all know that she will wear it to manifest her nietos.

Esta Casa No Es Hotel Poster | $16.99 – $19.99

mitú

Help your mom decorate the house with her own sense of humor. The poster will give your mom a reference to point to when people ask her for too much. Like, learn the house. Find your own towels. Get your own juice. Room service and hotel-level work is not happening in this house. You got legs, arms, and claim to be a grown up.

Happy anniversary to all of the mothers, abuelas, tías, and mother figures in the world.
