It happens to almost all of us. The moment we realize that we are slowly, but surely, turning into our parents. Whether it’s the use of a cheesy phrase, a quirky habit, or a zany rule that used to drive us wild when we were teenagers, the time will come when we have to look in the mirror and face this fact. This moment happens to a lot of young women as they grow older. So many women swear left and right “I’ll never be like my mom!” Next thing they know, they’re asking their kids for help with technology or carrying Band-Aids in their bag at all times. Here are some hilarious (and relatable) moments when women realized they were turning into their mothers.
Who doesn’t love free stuff?! Freebies are always a welcome surprise at any bank, realtor’s office, or auto body shop. You may have wondered why your house always had a junk drawer full of pens with logos and taglines on them. Over time, though, you learn that these free pens, stress balls, or keychains can become more appealing to us as we get older.
This Twitter user soon realized she was becoming her mother when she started her own collection of freebie pens. Her collection grew so much, in fact, that the bottom of her purse was full of them! Moms always seem to have anything and everything in their bags. You never know when a pen will come in handy!
