|Me, in all my birthday glory, enjoying the sunshine.|
In honor of me turning another year older, I thought I would share a few reasons I know I am old...or not so much old, but an adult. Definitely not a child.
Reason 1 - I find myself having to tell my friend's daughter over and over that her mom and I are really cool people.
Reason 2 - I don't think anyone should utter the words "cray, cray" and I cringe whenever I hear it.
Reason 3 - My driving habits certainly have changed. And I no longer think it is cool to brake check people.
Reason 4 - The waist on my jeans just keep getting higher and higher. This mom no longer likes the look of butt crack hanging out...not that I liked the look before, but I certainly owned enough pair of pants that allowed for it.
Reason 5 - I also no longer see my bra straps as an accessory...sorry orange bra.
Reason 6 - I cringe at the thought of some of the things I did
Reason 7 - I no longer leave the house in my pajamas.
Reason 8 - Hanging out with my friends usually involves me being home before midnight...though I must say, I am a night owl and this one has more to do with my friends than me.
Reason 9 - I meal plan and shop for groceries weekly.
Reason 10 - I know more real news than celebrity news.
I know, I know. I'm getting up there. It's crazy, but I can't do anything about it. So I'll just embrace it...and at least be happy that people generally think I am much younger than I really am.
