Mothers have the best, and sometimes most embarrassing dance moves; but you have to love their carefree, life-loving, attitudes. If you follow me on snapchat, you know that my mom is an amazing dancer! She’s always like “Amira, don’t out me on the Internet!” lol but the world has to know. Her favorite song is “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira. When we were younger, my sisters and I would grab blankets, wrap them around our hips, and dance in the kitchen with our mother as she channeled her inner Shakira.
Do you remember how horrible your teen years were? YIKES! #literallyicannot So I have two sisters, and we’re all pretty much the same person. Yep, #demlewallygirls are all sass-filled, type A, loud and opinionated princess divas! Lol and our mother is like our soft-spoken, kind-hearted, always fair-ruling queen. How someone so sweet handled that much sass in one household? The world will never know….
So as you get older, your relationship with your mother may get… awkward. Lol while you’re in college you may collect things that your mother finds inappropriate. My friends and I try to get each other the most awkward things for each others birthdays; this list includes: sexy posters, shot glasses… pretty much anything you find in the back corner of Spencer’s. So last pageant season, my mother decided to clean my room while I was out…and she found everything. From the genetail shaped shot glasses to the periodic table of inappropriate pictures! Lol and do you know what she did? She hung the posters up, and organized my shot glasses on my desk; and she NEVER mentioned them! Hahaha *face palms*
Mothers are the BEST at getting out of speeding tickets! My mother has been in the U.S. for over 30 years now, but for some reason her accent gets a little thicker when she gets pulled over! Lol and it’s funny because it works! Like whenever she’s in an awkward situation she tilts her head and says, “oh I’m sorry…it’s not like that in my country.” Oh no mother, lol no! no! no! *snaps in Z formation*
Does your mother ever forget which curse words are English? Like that other people can comprehend her reading them! *snaps in Z formation* Lol this one time I was grocery shopping with my mother, and this lady had the audacity to cut us off with her shopping cart. Well being the sweet foreign southern mother my mommy is; she chose to release her frustration by calling her a “bastard dog.” The lady obviously heard her as she sped up the speed of her cart and left the aisle. That night I had to explain to my mother that there are certain expletive that are still curse words…even when translated! *kanye shrugs*
Mothers pray for their children more than they pray for themselves. They speak to God on a frequent basis, and not only ask for forgiveness, but protection.
Mothers will sacrifice ANYTHING for their children to be happy! It must be engrained in their DNA, like some people are just meant to be awesome mothers! My older sister was 25 when she got sick. While my sister was in the hospital, my mother spent EVERY night with her. The doctors were so confused. One of them even said, “Well, you know most moms don’t spend the night with their teen children, I’ve never seen this before.” And that’s when I realized that my mother was one of a kind, and if I could be 1/38th of the person she is in life…. then I would be happy.
Mothers riiiiideeee for their children dawwwwgggg! *pageant girl twerks* When people mention a “ride or die” I often I ask, “where are we riding to, why do I have to die?” But mothers do this without any questions! My mother is my biggest fan, she is constantly rooting for me to succeed! She is the first to yell at me for a mistake, but also the first to help me fix it! *twirls away*
Mothers give the best, and most awkward, dating advice! They can spot the scrubs you’re about to date from a mile away! My mother allows me to secretly date whoever I please because she knows that I would never bring someone unworthy home! BUT when your mom actually likes someone that you used to be interested in, it may cause a problem. For example, every time I go home I realize that my prom picture that I hid weeks earlier has reappeared! My mom awkwardly met my prom date once, yet she still asks about this man that I haven’t spoken to in years. *face palms*
