Ah, motherhood. Life as a mother is one long twisting and turning roller coaster. It is filled with happiness and joy, but also stress and worry.
When you find out you will be someone’s mom, you never really know what to expect, even if you think you are prepared after reading all the books, reading all the blogs, and watching all the videos and documentaries online.
Sometimes, motherhood really does kick us in the ass. Some days, the exhaustion is too real, or our kids drive us absolutely mad. What’s even worse is when you utter a statement and realize that you are turning into your mother.
But, at the end of the day, we always look back at these moments and laugh (while internally screaming and panicking).
Here are some tweets that are so relatable they perfectly sum up the Latina motherhood experience.

For all fitness lovers out there, Latina moms have officially taken their love of recycling containers to a whole new level. Now, you will not only find sewing supplies in cookie tin cans, but also you will start finding other household items (or jalapeños) in your workout supplement jars.

After a fun vacation filled with daily activities and adventures, who else comes back home more tired than they left? Moms especially need additional time off after their family vacation to recover from days of running after their kids in unknown areas.

*cries nervously in Spanish* Who else can’t wait for your kids to go back to school? After three months of trying to find activities to keep your children entertained, we literally can’t wait until school starts.

We know many of you will feel identified by this one. When we were kids, there was at least one time that we forgot to tell our mom that we needed some poster board for a project due the following day.
Well, what goes around comes around. Now our children do the same to us.

We don’t know what it is about children and their ability to create a mess in 0.5 seconds. Even if we teach them to pick up after themselves, it is still hard to keep up with.
It would be so nice for someone to help us clean, right?

This heat wave is no joke. One step outside makes you feel like the sun is melting your skin off. At this point, we should all be like this Twitter user and stand under cold water with our children to see if they can cool down too.
I’m Fr a Hispanic dad, I’m tryna make sopa de res and it’s hot af outside

Speaking of the heat wave, remember when your Latina mom would make caldo for lunch on an excruciatingly hot day?
Well, it seems like that gene was also passed down to another generation because we can’t live without our caldo and rice. Who would have thought?
Primer mes de bebé, pensé que no llegaba. #momlife

This new mom reminds us of the newborn stage, filling us with laughter and nostalgia for those old days but also the relief we felt when those hard days were over.

Now we are the ones that exaggerate time. But seriously, donde estas!?
Hispanic moms find the cure to everything

From “vivaporu” to té de manzanilla, Latina moms always seem to have a cure for any ailment. While we may panic anytime our children suffer, some of the remedies we use are definitely questionable.
While it is no easy feat, let’s keep a light heart as we pass through all the panic that comes with motherhood.
