Share this article


It happens to the best of us.

Maybe it was the moment every movement had to be accompanied by a sound, or you take a Mary Poppins handbag everywhere you go JUST IN CASE you might need something.

Or worse, you get excited at new kitchen utensils or like Mary in Derry Girls you become a scary hunter of clothes for the "white wash!"

There's only one explanation..

You have officially become your parents.

The Moment You Became Your Mam Or Dad

Ferg this is gas...I realised I was turning into my mam when I went straight to the bedding section of Penney's last weekend and spent an hour there!! - Maura In Killarney

Mine happened when I was having a cuppa tea with the other half and the. I started saying, “this weather can’t make up its mind what it’s doing!” In that moment, I knew, I had become my mother - Tommy In Kildare

I've gotten into the feeling the radiators as I go round the house. My Dad would have been proud! - Derek In Baltinglass

Ferg, there was a time when I'd see a bright sunny day and I'd be out the gap to Bettystown with my mates and a bag o' cans...now? Well I'm more likely to get on whatsapp to tell them that there's a grand but of drying out there! *slightly smiling face* - Katie In Louth

My 10-year-old nephew let me win a video game cuz he felt bad for me, like I did to my dad 25 years ago on Super Nintendo. - Stevo In Dublin

My dad has away worked himself to death. Now he's retired. When he comes over now as soon as he sits down on a couch he falls asleep within minutes. I'm noticing couches are starting to have the same effect on me - Paul In Kerry

When I shout ‘door’ when anyone gets up from the sofa. It’s a pre-emptive move to stop any draughts - Juanita In Laois

I’ve totally turned into my Da by holding something at arm's length to read it. I even pull the same 'reading at arm's length' face!! - Joe In Carlow

I’m definitely my dad.. ‘Don’t make me turn this car around’.. ‘tis too much ye have ‘ & every Christmas without fail ‘isnt Santa a great man’ - Tony!

Fergal, the moment I bent down to pick up the two-year-olds toy for the 400th time but THIS TIME I made a loud noise the whole way coming up. It was so bad my wife just started at me. "OMG you have become Gerry." - James
