Adultish 6/365


Of all the things strange to me,
Growing up has got to be-
the thing that has me most puzzled.   

Entering year 30, mom and wife,
yet still fear I lack maturity.

Own house, two children-
various responsibilities;           

yet drinking coffee in patterned mugs
is what makes me feel thirty.

Does anyone ever truly feel grown-up? 

As I was driving Big Boy to preschool this morning, I was contemplating how adult-like I felt drinking coffee. My next thought was the irony of the situation since I was driving my car- with my two sons, both of which would make one think that I should feel like an adult. As cliche as it is, I feel like I was just 20 yesterday. It made me start wondering if anyone ever truly feels grown-up.

Sidebar- notice that insanely cute coffee sleeve pictured? Yep, my very talented BFF created that for me for Christmas this year, and apparently, if you are crafty, it's not too hard of a task to duplicate. She took an old wool sweater, washed and shrunk it so that it became felted wool that could easily be cut and not unravel, and then sewed the seam- waala- one uber fun upcycled craft project :)
