Happy Mamacitas’ Day! Tell Your Mom(s) I said Hello

Happy Mamacitas’ Day! Tell Your Mom(s) I said Hello

Mom, I Love You

How many little mommy’s do you know?  I know a few, but on Mother’s Day, I wish I knew them all.  Are you wondering what Mamacita stands for? It means “little momma” but is also an affectionate way to refer to one’s Mother.

For example:

Mom– “I think it’s about time you meet a lady and make me some Grandkids.”

Son– “Aye Mamacitaaaaaaa, there’s no one as pretty or sweet as you!”

Mamacita is a term also used to say a lady is cute, or hot like “that is ONE HOT Mama!”

There is no set-in-stone way to use the word Mamacita, but don’t think you can go around calling every woman you see that, or you’ll have a permanent welt on your face the size of the red circle on Japan’s flag.

 

What to Expect

On this wonderful holiday, there are more gift baskets, flower bouquets, handbags and hallmark cards floating around than rats in New York City; and for a good reason too.

Why?

Mother’s Day is superior to Father’s Day because they nursed us as babies and chose not to throw us into a dumpster.  For those babies whose moms did that to them, no hallmark cards, only jail time.

The Briefest History of Mother’s Day Possible

You are dying to know when Mother’s Day began, just like you need the login information to your significant others email account:  Spoiler alert, you aren’t getting it so do something productive like trim your nose hairs.  Or continue reading on about Mother’s Day history.  Besides, your nose hairs aren’t bad enough to stop anyone’s heart, as a Mamacita can.

The holiday unofficially began in 1911, the same year that International Women’s Day was first celebrated, and a giant meteorite fell in Egypt which provided evidence of water on Mars.  Also, in 1911 Machu Picchu in Peru was rediscovered, and superconductivity was discovered.  Good luck figuring out what that is.

Anyway, as all American states were observing the Mother’s Day holiday, a fine lady by the name of Anna Jarvis, a peace activist who worked on public health issues, ushered in a campaign to recognize the day as a national U.S. holiday.

Thirty-three years later Woody Woody Pecker (Woodrow Wilson) signed a proclamation designating the second Sunday in May as a national holiday to honor mothers.  The year was 1941, and the Nazis were doing terrible things, there was a brief 27-day war between Peru and Ecuador, and Mothers were finally being recognized for putting their lives on the line to birth babies and keep men from killing everyone.

 

Present Day

In Spain, Mothers’ Day is known as Día de la Madre or Día de las Madres and takes place on the first Sunday in May, and now I must say:

I hope you have the best Mothers’ Day ever, and if you are a Mom, thank you!

If you are NOT a Mom and did not get your Mom, Step-Mom, Grandma, or any other Mom some flowers, chocolates, a card, or a new Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch with the A12X Bionic chip, then please get out of my face and don’t talk to me.

 

 

Hablas Español Mamacita?

Today is also a fantastical day to sign your Mother up for Spanish lessons at Kasa De Franko.  We will take proper care of her and teach her the Spanish she needs to live a fuller and complete life, meet a lad or gal named Jose or Josefina, make friends with them, salsa or merengue all night, and die happy.

The world is your oyster and Mothers; today is YOUR day! Carpe Diem!
