“When I was a kid, we had it so much easier. We didn’t have gadgets and we would play outside. The ’90s were such a great time.”
Isn’t that something we always hear nowadays? And the funny thing is, the people who usually make those claims were born in the 90’s themselves.
Dear Millennials, I don’t think you can be considered a ‘90s kid if you were born in the 90’s. Think about this… What did you remember when you were 1 or 3 or even 5? Not much, I believe. Maybe your love for your Barbie collection? The time you asked your parents for a Tamagochi? Or the time you peed your overalls in kindergarten?
Even if you were born in 1990, the first year of this so-called nostalgic era, I’m sure the most you had a good grasp of occurred during half of the era. You didn’t get to experience and understand Saved by the Bell and the earlier seasons of Boy Meets World in real time. (Reruns don’t count. I repeat, Reruns don’t count.)
So in my opinion…
Born in the ’90s = ’90s Baby
Born in the ’80’s = ’90s Kid
