Dear Latina Moms Who Feel Complicated About Mother's Day, Let's Heal Our Inner Madres


First, let me smile with you. You may be counting down the days until Mother’s Day to be in celebration and joy. You may be looking forward to being celebrated this month, to getting cafecito in bed, to taking your mom to IHOP because that’s where she likes to go, to calling your tias or madrina to thank them for being your other mamis. You may be feeling warmly about your abuelita, whether she’s physically here or otherwise, or excited to toast with your comadres in recognition of the endless labor in the work of mothering and in appreciation of each other. As we feel this rosy and sparkling feeling that these imaginings create, we’re smiling together.
