    You're Definitely A 90s Kid If Your Mom Did At Least 12 Of These 21 Things

    They're in their own class, really.

    1. Her hair was always perfectly volumized.

    'Twas a good decade for hairspray.

    3. She wore mom jeans like they were going out of style because, well, they were.


    4. And she probably had you wearing them, too.

    5. These VHS tapes were basically her personal trainers: / Via ositodiaz666/

    6. Unless, of course, she was getting it right and tight on one of these:

    You found it surprisingly difficult to play with.

    Straw hats, white gloves, white purse. Pretty sure all our moms went shopping together.

    13. She got you your own phone line when you were a tween so she didn't have to share talk time with you anymore:

    14. All of Julia Roberts' movies were on her constant VHS rotation.

    You could say the phrase, "my colors are blush and bashful!" in a perfect Southern accent before the age of 5.

    15. And she'd see any movie with either of these heartthrobs in it:

    TriStar Pictures / Via Paramount Pictures

    They basically ruled that decade.

    16. She changed things up by packing you one of these for lunch from time to time:
