Kaelyn is 18, has graduated high school, and is going to be leaving for college shortly. Before she left, she decided to have a movie night with long-time friend Stevie. Kaelyn's mom is what you might call "protective" and has a policy of requesting selfies from Kaelyn at random times so that she can confirm that Kaelyn is where she says she is.

Movie night turned into selfie night thanks to Kaelyn's mom, and the teen posted the text exchange to Twitter. The tweet blew up as people all across the internet realized maybe they all had the same mom.

Here's the first screenshot.

After passing, she took to Twitter.

Kimmy popped in to let her know that the overprotective mom thing doesn't really stop.

Carla thinks trust is overrated.

And this person thinks Kaelyn should just enjoy it.

Not everyone saw the exchange as heartwarming and fluffy. To be honest, some of us were reminded of this woman, whose abusive husband had similar requests.

This person pointed out how inappropriate this same conversation would be if it was a lover.

Mary thought the whole thing was inspirational, so she figured she would try it with her young-adult daughter.

It didn't go as planned.

But some people thought that was a good thing.

As for mom, she told a news outlet that she believed Kaelyn, but decided to have a little fun with it.

"I knew she was where she said she was, but it was more fun to keep her doing different things."

So Kaelyn posted that she felt like her mother didn't trust her, but Chris's theory may actually be closer to the truth:
