20 Totally Relatable Tweets Proving We’re All Becoming Our Parents

Let’s face it, we’re all getting older.

As we age our priorities change, and before you know it, you’re choosing to lead a lifestyle that might look oddly familiar… Maybe you’re just choosing to stay home more because going out is tiring and expensive, or maybe you find yourself getting excited about mundane acts of “adulting,” like buying a new doormat or trying out your Instant Pot. One day you might look up from your 4:45 p.m. dinner special and realize, “Oh my goodness, I’m becoming my mother.”

Hey, it happens to the best of us! In a recent Twitter thread, people from all over the world shared their #SignsYouveBecomeYourParents moments, and their replies are hilarious!
