20 Things You’ll Totally Relate To If You’re A *Millennial* Mom!

If only I got a penny for every time someone said that I was being a typical millennial, I’d be super rich! Millennial is a term used for people born between 1981-1996 and you know you’re special if you were born in this bracket. As kids, we got to experience our childhood minus the gadgets. We grew up to be exposed to the world wide web that helped us broaden our horizons and made us more aware. We are the ones who challenged norms and made our own rules. No wonder then that we make awesome parents too!

So, if you’re also a new-age mom, you’ll totally relate to these 20 things.

  1. You have 7,568 photos of your baby on your phone.
  2. You’ve already made a Gmail account and an Instagram handle for him/her, in case they don’t get one with their name later.
  3. You have at least three pairs of coordinated outfits with your little one.
  4. You have at least one episode of Peppa Pig downloaded on your phone. In case of emergency, you know! ;)
