To quote teens, 'smh.'

As we get older, we tend to look back at our younger days with a tinge of sadness. We bemoan having to say goodbye to youth. But that’s just part of accepting the passage of time, right? Well, one mom seems incapable of letting go of her youth—to the point that she thinks she looks like her daughter’s sister. But the Internet is not having it.

On Monday’s episode of ITV’s This Morning, 33-year-old Donna Galt and her daughter Mya appeared on the show, and Galt claimed that people always got them mixed up for one another. What do you think?

Galt and her daughter probably took inspiration from a snapshot of Kaylan Mahomes, her twin, and her mom, which went viral when people couldn’t figure out which one was the matriarch

That being said, there’s plenty of doubt about which Mahomes is which. That’s not really the case with the Galts.

As you might expect, Twitter users have been dragging them for thinking they could pass as each other. They don’t even think Donna could pretend to be Mya’s older sister. Even with the two dressed in the same outfit and styled almost identically, Mya is clearly a teenager and Donna is clearly an adult woman.

Let this be a lesson to moms everywhere: Even if you try to be the Cool Mom, you are still, at the end of the day, a mom.
