There's some magical force that immediately makes women all start doing the same "mom things" once they have kids. Sure, some moms skip a few of them, but no one is totally immune.


A new survey asked people how many of these classic "mom things" their mothers did when they were growing up or still do now. Check 'em out:

  • Leaves you in the grocery store line while she goes to grab one more thing.
  • Texts with just one finger.
  • Won't get you a snack when you're out because you "have food in the house".
  • Gets into never-ending conversations with people she runs into at the store.
  • Still holds grudges against kids who wronged you years or decades ago.
  • Tells you that you look beautiful or handsome even when you look terrible.
  • Holds her arm out in front of you when she slams on the brakes.
  • Calls celebrities by the wrong name.
  • Literally always has tissues on her in case you need one.
  • Hands you mail that was addressed to you that she'd already opened.
