When your mom says you’re not allowed to eat more pan dulce.

Featuring: @adi_lene02

Don’t get between a Latina and her pan dulce. And speaking of pan dulce, have you tried pan dulce and ice cream together? If you haven’t, be sure to hit up Horchatería in L.A. It’s actually mind blowing.

Si saben como me pongo, ¿pa qué me invitan?

Featuring: @sallypea

This little dude has moves that can only be truly appreciated at quinceaneras and bautizos. He doesn’t follow the dance that every other kid is doing. He follows the beat of his own drum.

A la Junaga.

Featuring: @geraldalocks

We knew this was going to give La Caída de Edgar a run for his money. But we have to admit that right before the fall, this was probably some of the best moves we’ve seen since JuanGa days — actually including the fall.

No, we’re not getting a pet.

Featuring: @ccdelcid

A tale as old as time: Latinos parents will say that they don’t want any pets in the house but the moment you adopt one, they immediately fall in love with it and the pet instantly becomes the favorite child. Spoiler alert: Latino dads are actually soft AF on the inside.

Umm… my elote looks a little bit like something else.

Featuring: @charmingman1121

When you’ve been celibate for a long time and everything around you starts looking like something else. In case you’re in the mood, here are some Latino songs about food that are actually about sexy time.

We all have that one tía.

Featuring: @jasmincausorfilms

I don’t care how much the dress cost. I don’t care if we have guests around. If there’s cake around you best believe someone’s getting their face smashed into it. Also, shoutout to this person because you look like the life of every party and deserve an invitation to every party.

Let’s get avo-control.

Featuring: @periwinklesash

Move over, David Getta. Move over, Test. Move over, Calvin Harris. There’s a new DJ that should be headlining in Vegas and it’s the one and only Guacardo. If you want to get your own Guacardo DJ, click here and use the code SPRING15 for 15% off your entire purchase at checkout.

When she tells you she likes musicians.

Featuring: @jicaaa

Not everybody was born musically talented, but just how the saying goes: fake it till you make it. Even if it means taking a pozole cucharón and using it as your instrument.

Tell me what that mouth do.

Featuring: @lucy24garcia

What they don’t tell you is that taking Jell-O shots is actually harder than taking regular shots. Speaking of shots, if you want a shot glass set that speaks to who you are, be sure to get this season’s Barrio Box which includes these shot glasses and many other goodies.

People for the ethical treatment of pasteles.

Featuring: @priscigl

I think it’s a fact that cake has never actually been eaten at Latino parties. RIP all of the fallen cakes. Y’all were beautiful and I’m sure delicious and I’m so sorry my people have been treating you this way.

Who taught Slender Man how to dance corridos?

Featuring: @roberto_valadez_97

This video is both creepy and funny and all I can picture is what other people at the store were thinking. Keep it up, Slender Man, dance to whatever music your heart desires.

I can already see the chancla flying.

Featuring: @yamilleteflores

Ouch! And I’m not talking about the wall. You know someone got a chanclazo after this video was taken. We cannot confirm nor deny that the kid is okay.

Why did you do this, Sofia??

Featuring: @kristalcastles

Honestly, Sofia was just looking out for y’all. She’s the true protector of the house. The smile at the end has me dying. If you want to reward your pooch with a poncho, click here.

Thank you so much for submitting all of your videos, we had a great time going through all of them. Don’t forget to continue sending your videos so that you can be featured next!

Whether you believe in these pregnancy superstitions or not, you’ve probably heard either your mom, tía or grandma talk about them at one point.

1. You can determine the sex of your unborn baby by looking at the belly.

If your belly is up high, you’re having a girl, and if your belly is wide, you’re having a boy. It’s that simple.

2. Or just count the number of pimples on the mom-to-be’s face.

If you have a lot of acne, you’re definitely having a girl. And if your skin is glowing, then you must be having a boy.

3. Thread a needle and hold it over the belly.

Depending on whether the needle spins clockwise or counterclockwise will determine the sex of the baby. At this point, who even needs an ultrasound to find out what they’re having?

4. Rubbing toothpaste on the mom’s belly button will protect the baby from feeling the mom’s stomach cramps or contractions.

Pro tip: The more toothpaste, the better.

5. To make labor much smoother, fill a large pot with hot water.

Once the water boils, place the pot on the floor and squat over it for as long as you can. This will help make your labor a breeze… allegedly.

6. If there’s heartburn during the pregnancy, the baby’s going to be hairy.

Probably not as hairy as this, but you get the idea.

7. Wearing a safety pin on underwear during an eclipse will ensure the baby doesn’t have health problems.

So as soon as you find out you’re pregnant, go buy a whole pack of safety pins.

8. Also, if you’re pregnant, be sure to wear something red during the lunar eclipse otherwise the baby will have birth defects.

Make sure you’re wearing a red shirt, red pants, red underwear, red bra, red EVERYTHING.

9. If the expectant mother is outside during a full moon, the baby will be born with a giant birthmark.

As you can tell, the moon has a lot to do with your baby and this couple doesn’t care.

10. To avoid having an ugly baby, don’t give other people ugly looks during your pregnancy.

Or just don’t do it in general.

11. Most importantly, make sure to always satisfy your food cravings while you’re pregnant, or else your baby will come out with its mouth open.

Follow this rule even if you’re not pregnant.

The annual three-day event gives attendees the opportunity to build their networks and work on skills like creating an engaging social media feed and growing an online business.

This year’s tickets sold out in a record-breaking three hours and six minutes. If you weren’t able to score a ticket this time, here’s what you missed. And be sure to read to the end, where we’ll give you information on how to live these 15 favorite moments from this year’s We All Grow with the digital pass — at a discounted price.

1. The #WeAllGrow Summit kicked off with a special performance by Las Cafeteras during the welcome party.

#WeAllGrow attendees kicked off the annual summit with a fun night of dancing and music by Afro-Mexican band, Las Cafeteras. The East LA-native group fuses hip-hop, cumbia and rock genres with spoken word and zapateado dancing to help celebrate different cultures and bring communities together.

They’ve previously shared the stage with acclaimed Mexican singer-songwriter Lila Downs and other major acts like Juanes and Talib Kweli.

2. Attendees enjoyed a tasty breakfast in bed by #WeAllGrow’s Changemakers Collective.

#WeAllGrow attendees didn’t have to go very far to have a tasty breakfast in the morning. The Changemakers Collective provided everything to fuel a full day’s worth of workshops and networking.

3. Stressed? No worries. The event provided a calming and energizing morning yoga session with Jennifer Ibarra.

Yoga instructor and CEO of MindfulMamis, Jennifer Ibarra led a group morning yoga session to calm nerves and help set the tone for the rest of the day. Ibarra believes in connecting with others on a soul level.

During the morning session, she used her peaceful voice to lead poses and stretches to reach both the hearts and minds of attendees.

The past couple of days have been a total extreme rollercoaster, just like the story of my life. I like to say that my life is a tango, all drama, all passion. For some reason, since the moment I found out I was going to be a storyteller on @weallgrowlatina Summit, I took it as if it was one of the most defining moments of my life. That’s how it felt since day one and like every project I do, I had to do it obsessively good, as good as I can possibly make it. And I wanted to be 1000% myself, even if that means being a lion, throw fire, a warrior that will stand up every time she gets punched to the floor. But to be 1000% myself, I had to let go of all my fears: what are they going to think of me if they see ME, with all my fire and all my lights? What will happen when they find out that I’m so much more than the fun girl who makes cakes? Will I be embraced or rejected? That scared me extremely. But 1 hour before getting into that stage, all the fears disappeared and I was ready… to roar, to throw fire, to do kickboxing, to be the fighter I am and to show all my true colors. With my immense strength and my most honest vulnerability. There was a moment when I broke down, talking about something that was heartbreaking, the moment I left my mom and my dad to chase my dream… everyone in the audience started chanting my name… like in a soccer stadium! Vero! Vero! Vero! 🏆🔥 I never in my life felt more accepted and embraced! That’s what the community of @weallgrowlatina that @laflowers created 5 years ago is. The most loving, empowering women who will lift you up if you fail and let you be their guide if you can somehow inspire them. I’m counting the minutes until I get this video so I can share with everyone. Right now, I’m still digesting felling overwhelmingly grateful to @weallgrowlatina and @wordpressdotcom for this unique and magical opportunity. I climbed another 🏔and built another 🚁! I want to see all of you FLY too! 💫☄️🥊 .

8. Snacks were provided by California Strawberries.

Who says salsa can’t be sweet? California Strawberries served a mouthwatering strawberry salsa using simple, fresh ingredients. With California’s special climate, it’s no surprise to hear that the state produces 90% of America’s favorite fruits, strawberries.

This energizing snack had attendees lining up for seconds, que rico!

Together, they participated in an important conversation about self-esteem and beauty standards.

14. Dove also provided a custom perfume station for a personalized scent experience.

Dove brought a custom perfume station to #WeAllGrow and gave attendees a memorable scent experience. With fine fragrance and essential oils by Sarah Horowitz Parfums, creating a unique formula was fast, simple and fun.
