No matter how much kids will swear they will never grow up to be like their parents, there comes a time where most wind up doing just that. Well, now folks are sharing the moments they realized they are taking after their parents, and it’s truly eye opening.
It all started when someone on Reddit posed the question, "What’s the most 'I’m turning into my parents' moment for you?,” and folks were happy to chime in.
