5 Things...

Wow I had quite the week last week. Watching the little boy, throwing a party for my two older boys, tracking down chairs and tables, getting all the last minute party supplies, making decorations, having sick boys, cleaning, more cleaning, throwing an amazing party, hosting UFC, Mother's Day... and this week is shaping up to be the same!

Weeks like last week (and this week) make me feel like a grown up. And in honor of that...

5 Things That Make Me Feel Grown Up
  1. While vacuuming the other day I realized I need a new one. I wished I had kids for half a second so I could ask for a new one for Mother's Day. WANTING a vacuum as a gift = totally grown up.
  2. I found out yet another person I know is pregnant. Having pregnant friends makes me feel grown up.
  3. Job interviews. 'Nuf said.
  4. Changing your shoes because your feet have suffered enough over the past few days. Young people keep the cute shoes that make the outfit even if their feet are suffering. I did not. Even though the shoes were amazing and new. I went with comfy. Totally grown up.
  5. Getting down on the floor and scrubbing it. Ugh. I always swore I would own a mop, but it just doesn't get the job done sometimes. So here goes... *sigh* Mom... you were right about scrubbing the floor being better. That should count as two: floor scrubbing and telling mom she was right.
Now just because I feel grown up doesn't mean I act like one at all. Case in point: my cousin and I made a massive flower necklace yesterday. Just like elementary school.

Soooooo... being married doesn't make you feel like a grown-up?

Okay upon reflection, I have to revise my snark. Because being married didn't contribute to any grown-up feelings on MY part either, now that I think about it. Of course, I was 18-26, so... *shrug*
