She always said the day would come…. You prob laughed it off but now the signs are showing fast, the same habits are creeping in and the sayings you thought you’d never repeat just roll off the tongue with alarming ease. In honor of Mother’s Day we’ve rounded up 8 telling signs you’re turning into your mammy. Mums are the bomb dot com tho so we aren’t even mad about it tbh. Happy Mama’s Day! x
You’ve become a container hoarder
‘Sure it’ll come in handy some day’, you say, 20 takeaway containers later, adding yet another to an already overflowing cupboard.
Bargains are now life
You’ve recently found yourself seeking out the ‘better deals’. Buying in bulk just makes sense now & 2 for 1 offers are absolutely unmissable.
Your bag is overwhelmingly full all the time
To quote your mam ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ is in there – Fully stocked with snacks, painkillers, tissues & just about anything else you’ve ever owned. Everything gets chucked in there & your keys are probably always down at the very bottom of it too.
A cosy night in is your new going out
You’re starting to appreciate the value of a good 8 hours sleep & pamper sesh over a mad night out.
Comfy shoes are #1
Steadily phasing out those sky high heels & rockin’ more flats on the reg. Comfy chic is a LOOK.
You’re overwhelmed by abbreviations
Finding yourself googling the latest abbreviations used in the whatsapp group & pretending you understood all along.
Complaining is fun
Bus delays, endless queues… You can’t beat a good sigh & moan in solidarity with the stranger next to you about how ‘unbelievable’ the whole situation is.
You’ve become the queen of snacks
Any time you have friends over you find yourself buying enough snacks to last a long winter, asking every 2 minutes if refills are needed followed by ‘go on sure, what’s one more?’
