27 Most Hilarious Things About #GrowingUpDutch

You ain't much if you ain't Dutch. Thanks to the brilliant #GrowingUpDutch.

Posted on

1. Dutch kids live off of these things:

#GrowingUpDutch you can live off these

Bapao for life <3

3. After school your mum would get out the toaster for some gooey cheese toasties.

#growingupdutch always for lunch after school 🙈😌

4. You'd eat your toastie and watch any of these shows:

5. This guy taught you how to stack your fists on top of each other.

#growingupdutch DEZE VUIST OP DEZE VUIST.. 😂

6. Your cool factor was dictated by how much Diddle stationery you owned.

Collecting Diddle stationery and trading pages of your notepads with other kids. #GrowingUpDutch

7. School parties always involved some strange obstacle course like this:

Always doing this game at a summer party at school #growingupdutch

8. Your birthday involved having to plan two parties: one for the kids and one for the adults.

#growingupdutch als je jarig was gaf je een kinderfeest en een grote mensen feest

The kid one was fun, the adult one mainly involved sitting in a circle, having to talk to your great aunt.

9. There were many, many birthday songs you had to sing.

#GrowingUpDutch 'happy birsday to you, in de wei staat een koe en de koe zegt i love you, happy birsday to you'

Dutch people also struggle pronouncing the word "birthday".

12. Dutch kids tell the worst jokes.

#GrowingUpDutch "ken je hem?" "wie?" "kiwi!!" + "kan je erbij?" "waarbij?" "aardbei!!!" smh

13. And chant tons of annoying rhymes like this:

#growingupdutch "waarom?" "daarom" "daarom is geen rede, als je van de trap af valt, ben je gauw beneden"

14. '90s kids spent a lot of their time singing along to a track called "The Boob Song."

15. The first fandom you ever belonged to was K3.

#GrowingUpDutch if you know you knowww.

We miss Kathleen ;(

16. We don't have Disney in the Netherlands, but we do have De Efteling!!!

#growingupdutch do i even need to say anything?

17. And Het Land Van Ooit.

#growingupdutch if you ever went to "land van ooit"

The theme park's tag line, "Kid's are the boss", was always a letdown, leading to situations like this:

"MUM, INSTEAD OF LUNCH I'M GOING TO EAT THIS ENTIRE BAG OF POPCORN!"

"No."

"BUT I'M THE BOSS!"

"No, I'm the boss."

Talk about false advertising.

18. Dutch kids love to play tricks on each other:

"Ben je bang voor je vader en moeder?" #GrowingUpDutch

"Are you afraid of your dad and mother?"

"No....?"

"YOU BLINKED! You're AFRAID!"

19. Your first words were most likely "moon," "rose," and "fish."

21. Our national anthem, the Wilhelmus, is quite tricky too.

#growingupdutch only knowing the first verse of the national anthem

22. As a Dutch kid you have to bike to school, no matter what.

" mom i think its gonna rain can u bring me to school?" " no its beautiful outside go with ur bike" #growingupdutch

23. And it's super uncool to wear one of those rain capes.

No matter how hard its raining i would rather be all wet than wear one of these #growingupdutch

24. Luckily HEMA had these handy waterproof trousers.

25. To ensure your shoes didn't get soaked, you'd bike like this.

When its raining outside and u dont want ur shoes to be wet so u be like #growingupdutch

26. It would take you about five hours to find your bike in the school bike stalls.

27. And lastly, this annoyed all Dutch kids — and adults for that matter:

#GrowingUpDutch Foreigners that think that 'Holland' and 'The Netherlands' are different countries. :-I
