In a perfect world, we’d let every little thing our parents did slide by the wayside and we’d never bring it up…
But you know that’s not gonna happen!
And if you have kids, you DEFINITELY know it ain’t happening.
Because they never forget anything…even if it happened 25 years ago.
Check these tweets out and you’ll get what I’m talking about.
1. This could get ugly.
Only downhill from here.
My 10yo has started rating my cooking and I was feeling good about my 4 star meals until he told me that every dish automatically gets 3 stars just because “mom cooked it”.

2. It wasn’t me!
Get with the program, Gramps!
In their 80s my grandfather admonished my grandmother to not serve his dinner cold. As my grandmother and I went to the kitchen she turned to me and said, “his mother used to do that – I never have” 🤣🤣🤣

3. A cautionary tale.
Won’t let that happen again.
I once put the ice cream on the car to buckle my toddler son in and did not forget and did NOT drive off with it on top, but my son still mentions it all the time as a cautionary tale of dad’s cruelty and stupidity.

4. Something’s missing…
She’s a sharp one.
When my daughter lost a tooth before bed I had no coins in the house. I took a coin from her piggy bank thinking I’d just replace it the next day. That am she found the “new” coin, ran directly to her piggy bank, counted all her money and said she was missing the coin.

5. Uh oh…
This is a bad one!
My father once cut a package open at the bottom, ruining an American Girl doll dress my sister had been waiting by the mailbox for for weeks. We brought this up regularly for at least 10 years

6. He never delivered.
I’d keep bringing it up, too.
My father promised me a treehouse and never delivered and I have been using it as leverage for 20 years

7. This is brutal!
Gonna be a handful.
Once, I brought the wrong kind of snack when picking up my youngest from kindergarten (or thereabouts), and she said
“What kind of a dad are you, anyway?” 😂

8. Can’t seem to let it go.
There will be a novel one day.
I put chocolate in Chili once when she was three or four and she wrote an essay about it in grade three

9. Should have never told him.
Too late now…
I once cut my son’s finger while clipping his nails when he was a baby. I cried harder than he did at the time. Made the mistake of telling him I did this when he was older, and he’s been reminding me since.

10. You’re overexaggerating!
Come on now!
Yes, we were sad I burnt the waffles, but I don’t think we were as sad as this pictures portrays! pic.twitter.com/h1pVumAPu0

11. Don’t hurt me, Mommy.
It was three years ago!
Three years ago I accidentally caught some skin when I clipped my son’s bike helmet on. To this day if I’m helping him he’ll say, “don’t clip my skin in like you did that one time” and if he’s doing it himself he asks me if I remember the time I clipped some of his skin in …

12. Snoozing on the job.
A big NO-NO.
The way kids remember sh*t like this 🤣 Once, I fell asleep in my car, waiting to pick my kids up from school, literally parked out front. My almost 9 y/o was 5 @ the time but as recently as last year (pre-covid) said “don’t fall asleep in the car & forget to pick me up” 🙄😆

Now it’s your turn to sound off.
In the comments, tell us about the things your kids will never let you forget about.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
