The beautiful thing about Latino kids is that even as they get older and become fully functional adults, some of them still live at home with their parents and that’s totally something to be celebrated. Living at home when you’re in your 20s, 30s, and beyond is a wonderful thing. You can still have your own life, but you can be there for your parents as they get older. Latinos always put their family first, so why wouldn’t they want to stay with their parents as long as possible? Some Latinos are proud of the fact that they’re juniors who are grown up, just like Wendy’s Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger. We decided to celebrate Wendy’s $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger Meal by recreating some funny childhood photos with our very own Giant Juniors: mitú staffers.
My mom is my best friend. No matter how old I get, I’ll always be my mom’s Giant Junior…and I’m totally cool with that! I don’t have to deal with the drama of finding someone to live with, because I have my Ma! I still have my own friends and go to work every day, but there’s nothing better than coming home to chill with my mom.
Despite the apprehensive look on my face in the baby pic, I love my brother – and clearly he loves me too. He supported me back then (literally, by holding me in his lap) and he supports me now. We may be older and grown with tattoos and real jobs, but we’re still our parents’ Giant Juniors.
I’ll be real, I wish I could rock a pair of green shorts as well as my little brother. My bro and I love living with our parents. We have game nights, and since they did such a good job raising us, we like to surprise them with dinner sometimes. Our favorite mid-week treat? A Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy’s…obviously.
It’s crazy that even though my little sister and I are older now, we still look like those same little kids. Also, we were queens of the side pony! Giant Junior queens! Grown up we can still rock this look!
I’m seriously thinking about bringing this look back as a grown man. How cute are my older bro and I? Life may have gotten more hectic since that old photo was taken, but we’ll always make time for each other and our family. We can go out and live our lives, but there’s nothing better than kicking it back after a long day in the living room with papi, mami, and my bro. We have our best family convos over food, and particularly when we’re having Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy’s.
