What Are You Really Saying When You Talk To Your Mother?

Are you eating enough?

Sometimes, you tell your mom everything. Sometimes, you don’t. But there are always those little half-truths you tell just to let her know you’re doing… okay. This adorable Mother’s Day video from Alison Vingiano (who has been featured on here before) gets real and breaks down what you and your mother really mean when you talk to each other.

Mom, if you’re reading, it’s burritos every day. Not even going to lie about that one.
