You think you are a grown-up person that can make important decisions but your mother still sees the baby that put a pot on their head when they were younger. We think we are getting older, but we’ll always remain babies to our parents — funny, awkward, fussy, and always needing to be looked after.

“I’m a man who’s been married for 34 years and I have 3 children. When I visited my father, he asked me to help install an overhead light, but he’d only let me hold the flashlight.”

Our parents are always worried about us and want to know where we are.
“My bed at my parents’ house, I’m 22…”
