La madre = Mother


La madre = Mother (ma-dray)

As in...

  • La madre naturaleza = Mother nature
  • Futura madre = Future mother, meaning an expectant mother
  • Amor de madre = Mother’s love
  • Día de la Madre = Mother’s day
  • ¡Madre mía! = OMG!, Holy cow! {Literally: my mother}

Out of love for our mums (and the deep-rooted fear we still experience when we hear someone yell our full names) we've left out the plethora of very commonly used and heard profane phrases that include the word "mother" in them. You'll still find these phrases on the site- just not categorized under the word "mother".
