Madeleine Tarin's mom graduated high school in 2000, when Madeline was two and both her parents were eighteen. Eighteen years later, a grown-up Madeleine graduated from Chino Hills High School in California. And in a gesture to her parents so sweet it might make you call yours, she recreated an iconic photo taken at her mom's graduation 18 years earlier.
Check this out (and then call your mom):
"Yeah that's right, we made it TOGETHER," she wrote. These photos are incredible. It's no wonder they went viral.
There's one major difference between these photos: Madeleine is a lot taller than she was in 2000. But other than that, both her parents look almost eerily the same. Her dad even has the same exact facial expression.
And from the looks of it, Madeleine's mom has had time in the past two decades to raise a kid, pursue her degree, AND drink 27 glasses of water a day. Because holy smokes (which she clearly doesn't do) her skin looks AMAZING.
"It's one of my favorite photos ever since I was little," Tarin told BuzzFeed News. "I thought it was unique and it represented my life in a nutshell."
The pics have been retweeted over 77K times since Tarin shared them last week, and the responses are rolling in. Twitter is obsessed—with the sweet photos.
But most people (us included) are zeroing in on this family's magical anti-aging abilities.
Madeleine's mom has become internet #goals.
But HOW DOES SHE DO IT? The people demand answers!
Everyone else just wants to creep on the mom.
So what have we learned today? If you post a sweet photo celebrating your teen mom's tremendous accomplishments, everyone will just talk about her skin regime and whether or not they find her attractive. (Yes, we did it too, our bad!)
Madeiline told BuzzFeed News she posted the photos—not with the intent to show off her family's great skin—but to send an empowering message. "The picture to me symbolized my family's accomplishments, and that my parents beat the statistics [about teen parents]," she said.
At least one person got the broader message:
This family is #GOALS. And not just because of their clearly-excellent skincare regime—but really though, be straight with us: is it anti-aging creams? Dietary restrictions? We must knowww.
