    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.

    2. And she made sure yours was too.

    '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:

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

    You found it surprisingly difficult to play with.

    7. She captured all of your milestone moments using one of these:

    8. And always seemed to be munching on these:

    You learned the whole "fat free" thing the hard way.

    9. You'd totally watch her set her hair in hot rollers every morning.

    11. She totally drove you to school to the soundtrack of this guy:

    12. And she definitely dressed you like this for Easter:

    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:

    Score!

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

    TriStar Pictures

    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:

    They basically ruled that decade.

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

    So basic, yet so exciting.

    17. And if she was in a really good mood, one of these to go with:

    ABC

    20. You didn't have to look too deep in her wallet to find one of these:
