#GrowingUpBlack has been taking over Twitter in the best way. Get ready to take a walk down memory lane with these hilarious tweets.


Grandma’s Rules

Or when your grandmother tells you to stay off the phone and out of the tub when there’sย lightning.



I must still be growing up Black, because I still use this for everything.


This Famous Line

And then you had to do that ugly “I’m not crying” cry.


Your TV Shows

Remember these?


Grandma’s TV Shows

Unless it was time for her stories to come on.



But you could stand a spoon up in the pitchers you made at home due to all the sugar in it.


Your Mother

This one is almost too accurate.


This Face

Or when you forgot to wash the dishes…


At School

It’s cool, you’re not like other Black people.

Changing The Channel

Just another one of mom’sย superpowers, like hearing what you mumbled under your breath from the other room.


This Tin Of Cookies

Sewing supplies, buttons, junk, basically any and everything but cookies. Same goes for this container.


Getting Your Hair Washed In The Sink

And almost drowning in the process.

Getting Your Hair Done

Don’t reach your hand back there or it’s going to get popped (with this brush).


Sunday Dinner

Whether you got your plate at home or church.


These Shoes

Remember how they’d stick together (or easily get scuffed)?


These Paintings

So real.


And These Dishes

Let’s not forget about this one.
