Mother's Day is only two days away, and guess what? This year it falls on May 10th, same day as Mexican Mother's Day, so HURRAY for not having to remember to call my mom twice in one week to wish her a "happy Mother's Day" and then a "Feliz dia de Las Madres!"
So, have you bought anything or do you have anything planned for your mamacita linda? If you're like me, the answer is "OMG, I gotta go to the store!" Makes me want to give myself a chanclaso right now just for waiting till the last minute. But maybe you're a badass and you already have your mom's gift, you just didn't buy a greeting card for her because they're all mushy and your mom is an anti-mushy Mexican badass woman who gives awkward hugs because she doesn't want you to break down her protective emotional walls. Well, regardless, if you were raised by a Mexican woman, you know first hand that her favorite disciplinary weapon of choice was, and always will be, the chancla (yes, a sandal). Hasta te arde la espalda just thinking about it, right? Ouch...I think I see a little smoke coming out of there, haber, turn around. No, you're okay, I think it was just my vision getting cloudy with the tears of joy brought on by the memories of the many chanclasos I got which turned me into (you guessed it) the badass woman that I am today. This one's for you mom! No mushy cards for you, no way - guakala!
Some moms get Tony Awards. Others win Oscars or Golden Globes. Today, I am providing you with this printable file of "The Golden Chancla Award," which you can dedicate and lovingly present to the woman who gave you life, gave you love and gave you many consejos and chanclasos. Because let's face it, she deserves this beautiful homage as much as you deserved las chingas que te puso.
Get your free copy today! I bet she'll laugh and then smack you with it too.
It's only available as free printable through Saturday, May 9th - andale apurate, _get it now!
Card measures 5"x7", fits in a standard A7 envelope.
