The main reason is that most of the time, I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.
With each year that passes, I’m starting to realize that I can’t be the only adult who feels this way.
I remember my mom being my age and I used to think she had it all figured out.
I don’t have most things figured out, especially motherhood.
When I brought my daughter home from the hospital, I thought all the answers would fly into my brain and I would transform into mom of the year overnight.
That didn’t happen.
When it comes to my nearly 4 year-old, most of the time I feel like I’m just “playing house” because I never expected to be so clueless this many years in.
I just don’t feel my age.
I like to stay up late and I still sometimes use “totally” and “awesome” in the same sentence. Me? A grown up? Nah.
I look at my daughter and think she knows much more than I do already. Then I start thinking she’d be better off being raised by wolves.
Okay, maybe not but you get what I mean.
I have a house, a wonderful family, a job, bills to pay, and two cats. I’m just waiting to catch up to my age.
Do you feel like a grown up or do you feel like you’re sometimes pretending too?
