1. She truly has a way with words. It's like poetry, the things she says.

2. Like, seriously. Everything she says is practically a sonnet.

Shall I compare thee to a tiki tiki?

3. Her suggestions are always super helpful.

All the time! #cuban #CubansBeLike #cubans #CubanMomsBeLike #CubanProblems (Vine by Victoria(Toria))

4. She's there for you when you need it most.

Call mom 24516 times, no answer. Text mom saying "I have chisme", calls me back within 1 minute. #cubanmomproblems

You, on phone: Mami, tengo chi--

Mom, immediately beside you: --YES?

Nothing sets the mood for panic quite like being asked to prepare yourself.

6. And you know you're on her mind even when you're apart.

My heart says yes but my mom says no

She's cool like that.

When mami wakes the entire house up about a fork in the sink @ 3 AM:

Especially when it comes to cleanliness.
