“She found these dinosaur pills that you put in water and they grow into dinosaur sponges,” Banks told CBSDFW. Banks said that her mom was then accusing her of taking drugs and texted her to come home immediately because she was grounded.
“My heart just immediately sinks,” said Lisa Banks, describing the moment she found the plastic bag with the capsules.
Banks says her daughter is a good student and has always been responsible, so she couldn’t make sense of it.
“It would be a parent’s worst nightmare to think their kids were doing drugs.”
The subsequent side splitting conversation was shared by Ashley in a social media post that has since gone viral on Twitter.

The conversation ends with, “Nevermind. You don’t have to come home.” But not before mom asks daughter, “Why on Earth would you buy these? I thought you were 16 not 7?”
The tweet has since been re-tweeted over 35,000 times and favorited over 48,000 times.
Of her new found fame, Banks said, “It’s crazy. I did not expect it to blow up like this at all.”
“I know she was just looking out for me, and she just wants the best for me,” explained Ashley.
