If your momma is anything like my momma, she’s tried guiding you through life even when you’re not listening. My mom takes it to the extreme. From reminding me to take my umbrella when it is raining to wiping away crumbs from my mouth, she is a tad overprotective.
Mami is a nurturer. And nurturer’s never want to see their loved ones hurt. Even if I roll my eyes after she asks, “Do you have your coat on?” in the middle of winter, she will never stop giving me advice.
But that’s what mother’s do, don’t they? Give their daughters advice about what to wear, how to cook and how to date. Mami has expressed her hopes for me, her second daughter and middle child, about what kind of man she wants me to marry. She has advised me about sex and how to “date,” and what not to do because I am a “lady.” As a typical daughter, I’ve ignored most of her love lessons. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
