Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Andrea Barber all all excited for today's premiere of Fuller House on Netflix. The ladies have been friends for almost 30 years--friendships that started with the premiere of Full House.

Reprising their roles as Stephanie Tanner, DJ Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler--Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Andrea Barber, respectively, are all moms, too. During a recent interview with People magazine they dished about their kids and their awareness that their moms were Full House stars--and are very soon to be Fuller House stars, too.

"First grade is when they start to develop awareness. At my kids' school, the kindergarteners are clueless, the first graders are getting smarter, the second graders are like, '(Gasp!) You are in Full House!' And I'm like, 'I've been your room mom for two years now and you're just now realizing this?' Same with my kids, they had no interest in watching Full House until about age eight or nine and now they binge watch on all the networks," Andrea Barber says.

"It's cute, my kids came home from school the other day and one of their teachers aides was like, 'I saw your mommy in the news and I saw pictures of you in the news, too' and so they came out of their class and were like, 'Mom! We were in the news!' I was like, 'Yes I know, it was a picture of all three of us,'" Jodie Sweetin shares. "[My daughter] was like 'No no, it was just me,' my little one. 'Okay it was just you.' But they get really excited."

Candace Cameron Bure explains that while her kids are older now--in both junior high and high school--they like Fuller House better than Full House.

"The big benefit is when the teachers figure it out. If that will help my kids get better grades, I'm like, 'What do you need?' because we need some A's in high school," she says.

Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Candace Cameron Bure's lives are about to change. After today's premiere of Fuller House, they'll be officially back in the limelight again.

If their kids don't realize just how big their moms are, they'll need only wait a few days for the frenzy to kick in.
