Hola Chulas y Chulos! How you doin’? My chancla and I are over here thinking about abuelas AKA Latina grandmothers. Why? Well, because we have one visiting right now: my mother.
My kids are in abuela heaven ’cause as everyone who is the know knows abuelas trump mamás every single time. My chancla is getting no play since abuela will not hear of it. (FYI: I don’t really use my chancla to discipline my kids. I don’t believe in chancla abuse, instead I use my metaphorical chancla.)
Funny how she was all strict with me when I was a child, but she’s all cariñosa to the max with her grandkids. In honor of her visit, my flying chancla and I decided to round up the best abuela memes we could find for your enjoyment. You are very welcome!
Any abuela worthy of the title knows a thing or two about home remedies.
Western medicine is a’ight, but remedios caseros are where it’s at.
Abuelas are like the patron saints of sweaters.
Honestly, it’s possible that the sweater industry would not survive without abuelas telling everyone that they will get sick if they go out without a sweater on.
With age comes perspective.
There you are trying to get just the right angle to take a selfie in the bathroom mirror when nana walks in and tells you that in her day bathrooms were for poopin’.
They see what they see whether you see it or not.
Don’t even try to tell a Latina grandmother that there is no such thing as “Con Flay” because there is no arguing with abuela-vision.
If you haven’t eaten, be careful.
Your poor granny might hit the floor from worry and shock.
It’s pointless to tell abuela you’re on a diet.
She’ll outsmart that diet of yours.
But DAYUM she makes even the simplest food taste amazing.
Even if you weren’t hungry, you’ll end up eating enough to go into a food coma.
Mothers don’t stand a chance against abuelas.
Chamacos get sassy when they know who’s got their back.
Qué chancla ni qué nada.
Don’t even think about laying a hand on abuela’s precious nietos.
If your parents won’t get it for you, it’s nana to the rescue.
Even if she doesn’t have the money to buy it for you herself, she’ll nag your parents until they buy it for you just to get her to leave them alone.

Every kid knows that it isn’t mom who has the last word.
The final say goes to abuela.
Peace, love and abuelas to you!
That’s it for this week’s The Flying Chancla Report. I love you mucho and remember, spread love, not chanclazos!
