30 Times Kids Realized Their Parents Were Cooler Than They'll Ever Be.


There comes a time in our adult lives when we realize that our parents are way cooler than we gave them credit for growing up. Sometimes, we find that our impeccable taste of music comes from the people that raised us. We understand that we got our sense of fashion from our mothers. Our love for trying new foods can be blamed on our parents making us try everything that was on our plates. And sometimes, if you’re one of the lucky ones, pictures from your parents pre-children past find their way out of old boxes. If you’re fortunate enough to see those pictures, a few things could happen. You’ll laugh at the old hairstyles, and their wacky sense of fashion, or you’ll realize that your mom was someone you’d hang out with, and your dad was the coolest guy in school. Either way, it’s a fun trip down memory lane and you’ll definitely appreciate seeing a different side of your parents.
