For the past few months I’ve noticed that I am becoming my parents. The dreaded adulthood is firmly upon me and I can’t shake it no matter how late I stay awake to play on Twitter. The worst thing is, I’m not even becoming my mother – I’m turning into a 60-year-old man!

Hubster may need to stage an intervention soon.

So, here are some signs that I am turning into my father. If you have done 3 or more of these, you may need to ask your spouse or close friend to pull you back to safety. If you start complaining about “technology these days,” then I’m sorry to report that you are beyond all help and should consider what retirement home you want to move to.

  1. I am well and truly an adult then! Apart from the fabric softener, I have done all of these, on many occasions. What better feeling is there than fixing something yourself after many profanities and hours of sweat. Ok so I could go and buy a new one, but that’s boring!

  3. Hee hee! I do put an open can of pop in the fridge for later. And I’ve done the tin foil thing too. I don’t do any of them routinely – yet – but I know it’s coming.

    Adulthood isn’t quite what I thought it’d be…

  4. Haha. Really refreshing take on adulthood! If I go by this though, I should have looked for a retirement home for my husband 10 years ago. He still struggles to put the TV back from Netflix…

    1. We buy our fabric softener in bulk, the container is so giant I can barely lift it up to the top of my washing machine. When I returned home to visit my parents I realized I was using a container from my kitchen just like my father does for his…

  6. These are great! My hubby and I occasionally have the “technology” talk. We still remember the days before computers and cell phones. Lol, thanks for sharing! #DreamTeam

    1. I don’t know when this happened, I used to be fine with spending six dollars to save myself 12 hours. And now I just want to find a way to not have to spend six dollars!

  7. I’m laughing out so loud at the moment as this is my husband and I. We definitely do the first and the last one. Oh and putting pegs on opened crisp packets + folding shopping bags – the list goes on. I’ve always told him that he is turning into his father and he always use to get annoyed when I say it. But the other day he did something and actually admitted to the fact that he is indeed. Plus I reckon I’ve got a lot of my mom’s traits in me – boy we getting old #dreamteam

  8. I am turning into my parents! I fold foil and reuse. I also tear kitchen towel in half but when my mum is around I brandish a whole sheet to make a point 🙂 #dreamteam
