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?

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. ????

4-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Hung Herself While Climbing A Tree

4-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Hung Herself While Climbing A Tree

A mother living in the United Kingdom is enduring a “hellstorm of grief” following the tragic death of her 4-year-old daughter. Just days after welcoming her twin daughters, Elise Thorpe was forced to learn of her daughter Freya’s shocking death after she climbed a tree near her home in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire.

Just before her death, Freya was wearing a bicycle helmet when she went for her tree clim.

Freya slipped and began to fall off of the tree when her helmet strap caught on to a branch.

Elisa Thorpe is speaking out about the incident which took place in September 2019 despite efforts to resuscitate her daughter by emergency responders. According to Yahoo, “An inquest into her death in January 2020 ruled that she ‘potentially slipped’ and her helmet caught on a branch, causing the helmet strap to become ‘tight against her throat.’ She died in hospital two days later.”

Speaking about the incident Elise told The Sun “We live every day and night in hell, torture, sheer shock, and grief that can’t be comprehended.”

Elise told South West News Service that she and her husband “were on cloud nine after the long-awaited arrival and difficult pregnancy” of their twins Kiera and Zack. Speaking about the grief she experienced, Elise said that she would have taken her own life had it not been for the birth of her children.

Recalling the day of Freya’s death, Elise explained that her little girl had gone for a playdate.

“In the early afternoon, Daddy had to go off to collect the special milk from Boots pharmacy in Cowley for the twins, as they were allergic to cow’s milk,” Elise Thorpe explained about how her daughter had been invited to play at a house just a 10-second walk away.

Freya had gone outside without her mother knowing.

“I had a gut feeling I wanted her home. Shortly after, I saw an ambulance at the end of the road – I panicked, at the time not knowing why I was panicking,” Elise told SWNS. “I called my husband to say I was going to get her back from the house behind. He said, ‘No, I’m five minutes away, stay with the babies.’”

“I saw his car go past and not return from the little cul-de-sac. I knew something was wrong,” she went onto explain. After spotting her husband speaking with a firefighter, Elise “grabbed the twins and rushed to a cordoned area where she saw first responders working desperately on Freya.”

After two days of waiting at John Radcliffe Hospital, the Thorpe family learned Freya could not be saved.

“I never stepped foot inside my home again. This is something I also lost and miss to this day — my home,” Elise went onto say. “Had I not given birth only 10 days before we would have taken our lives in the hospital that night, without a shadow of a doubt… We have had so much support over the last 18 months and we can’t tell you all how much that’s helped us through and for that I can never thank everyone enough for the support, kind words and donations – even from those we’ve never met.”

“But we’ve also experienced scrutiny and abuse from people who’ve asked, ‘Where were the parents? How could they let her out alone?’” she added sadly. “It has caused family rifts from relatives and judgment all because people didn’t know Freya wasn’t in our care when this happened.”

Neighbors Raised $60k to Keep this Mariachi Band Family From Being Evicted During the Pandemic

Neighbors Raised $60k to Keep this Mariachi Band Family From Being Evicted During the Pandemic

While the pandemic has negatively impacted a lot of Americans, those who derived their income from in-person industries like food, hospitality, and live entertainment, have been hit the hardest.

Once COVID-19 shut the country down, many household were forced to scramble to make ends meet. And while the government offered some assistance, for many it wasn’t enough.

This predicament was exactly what the Chicago family, the Luceros, were going through.

The Luceros are a Chicago-based Mexican-American family who moonlight as the mariachi band, Cielito Lindo. Around Chicago, the Lucero family was known for their astonishing musical abilities.

Juan and Susie Lucero are parents to a talented team of seven children, all of whom play different musical instruments and have breathtaking singing voices. Diego, Miguel, Antonio, Carlos, Lilia, Maya, and Mateo all have different roles within the band, while Juan is the bandleader.

Before the pandemic, the Lucero family derived the majority of their income from their live performances. They would cover classic favorites like “El Rey” as well as doing mariachi-twists on modern pop hits like Cardi B’s “I Like it Like That”.

But when COVID-19 hit in March of 2020, the Lucero family was no longer allowed to play live events.

All of their performances were canceled. Even their long-standing weekly gig at a local restaurant disappeared. Their income dropped by 40%.

While the Luceros tried to cut corners and make small changes, the reality was, they couldn’t keep up with their bills. By the time Christmas rolled around, they were $18,000 behind on rent. They got an eviction notice.

The family had heard that the government had launched a rent-assistance program, but they couldn’t find many details on how to apply. They were completely lost.

Desperate for help, Juan Lucero reached out to his Facebook friends, asking them if they knew how to apply for government assistance.

But what he got in return was something even better. Their community decided to step up and take action.

“A few of us talked and said, ‘We can’t let them be evicted from their home. There’s just no way,'” their neighbor, Robert Farster, recently told CBS This Morning.

Farster ended up creating a GoFundMe page for the Lucero family. “Our good friends, the Luceros, need help,” he wrote. “Juan, Susy and their seven kids are too proud to ask for it, so as their friends, we’re stepping in.”

Within days, Farster had raised over $60,000, veritably saving the Luceros from eviction.

“It’s like a miracle. We didn’t expect that,” Juan Lucero told This Morning. “It feels like a big warm hug from many people.”

Juan’s wife, Susy Lucreo felt the same way. Despite these divisive times, she felt tons of love and support from her community.

“We feel very much loved and accepted as a Mexican-American family with roots in Guadalajara,” she told This Morning. “And we come together to share that combination of culture, which really is what America is all about–this big melting pot.
