10 Things Only Gen X Moms Would Say

Born between 1965 and 1984(ish)? If so, welcome fellow Generation Xer! In fact, I was born smack dab in the middle of what I consider to be the most totally tubular — and inexplicably overlooked — generation. To help celebrate all things Gen X, as we should do more often, here are 10 things that only we Gen X moms would probably say (besides “gag me with a spoon”):

#1 — “Back in my day, we didn’t have playlists — we had mixtapes. AND THEY WERE AWESOME. So much more personal.”

#2 — “No, you don’t need another game for your iPad. The only games I had for my Atari were Frogger and Centipede, and I survived somehow.”

#3 — “I can’t believe we lost Prince and George Michael in the same year. *SOB* There goes MY childhood.”

#4 — “We didn’t have caller ID when I was a kid, so we had to *69 people.”

#5 — “If you think Harry Styles looks good with a popped collar, you should have seen Rob Lowe!”

#6 — “I remember when MTV was actually a music video channel.”

#7 — “You think your wireless connection is slow? Ha! We used to have a dial-up that made a horrible screeching noise while it took, like, ten years to connect!”

#8 — “You call that haircut the ‘Kristen Stewart? Pssshhh. It’s the ‘Sinead O’Connor!'”

#9 — “You’ll thank me one day for slathering you in sunscreen. You see these wrinkles? Two words: TANNING OIL.”

#10 — “New Kids on the Block were our One Direction.”
