Maria on her daughter, Vicky
1. Templado: cuando nos enojamos, decimos lo que tenemos en mente y no nos detenemos.
Temper- when we get upset we say what is on our mind and don’t hold back
2. Soy tranquila; Vicky no puede escucharla a una milla de distancia, ya sea porque está gritando o haciendo algún tipo de comentario.
I’m quiet; Vicky is not, you can hear her a mile away either because she’s yelling or making some sort of comment.
3. Qué maravillosos y amorosos son los gatos. Vicky trajo un gato a casa una vez y su padre y yo peleamos con ella hasta que el peludo nos convenció a los dos.
How wonderful and loving cats are. Vicky brought one cat home once and her father and I fought her on it till the furry one convinced us both.
Vicky on her mother, Maria
1. I think we share a certain calmness to us when we are faced with something heavy that would rattle most; we don’t outwardly freak out we take our time with it and process it before we mention a word of it to anyone.
2. Everyone say when they meet my mom they are like she’s so sweet; not so when they meet me.
3. This is not sentimental but practical and much more useful. My mom taught me how to make food on the fly without a lot of money. One of my favorite and cheap meals is a Cuban dish called a puta which is not PC but you will understand once I tell you the ingredients. Steamed white Rice and a fried egg that’s it. Its cheap, fast, and tasty hence the name.
