Signs I Might Actually be an Adult
Adulting is hard. And just because someone somewhere decided 18 years on earth magically turns a child into an adult doesn't mean it's actually true. I'm well over age 18, but am still unsure of my alduthood status.
There are some signs I may have achieved this elusive status.
One sign I'm an adult is after washing and drying my clothes I always remove the dryer lint.
You wouldn't think this would be a sign of adulthood, but judging by the many MANY times I've yelled at my kids for forgetting this crucial step, it must be.
Not only do I NEVER run out of toilet paper, I also always replace the empty roll with a full roll on the dispenser.
This is definitely a sign I'm an adult.
Before I became a full fledged adult, I never thought about toothbrushes. I just used the brush sitting in my medicine cabinet.
Now that I'm an actual adult, I buy new toothbrushes every other time I buy toothpaste.
Speaking of which, toothpaste on my grocery list of a sign I'm an adult. It's just not something kids think about.
Ok. If we're judging my adulthood by the state of my kitchen, I'd say I might qualify as, I don't know, a toddler? Maybe a tween. A tween is a kid who is in the double digits but not yet in the teens.
Since I DO rinse my dishes before piling then in the sink, I guess I could qualify as a tween.
If I walk into my bedroom and see my bed is unmade, it literally hurts my stomach. I MUST drop everything and make the bed.
On that front, I've definitely reached adulthood. Unfortunately, I don't change my sheets as often as I probably should. So, NOT an adult.
On the other hand, I DO know how to fold a fitted sheet. So, OBVIOUSLY an adult.
I would be lying if I said my eating habits prove my adulthood. I usually eat sweets before the meal and I almost always play with my food. I even made a little pig out of bread.
As my next birthday approaches far too quickly, I realize adulthood isn't everything it's cracked up to be.
Sometimes I'm an adult. Most times I'm still a kid. All the time I'm just me.
Till next time.

geez! I'm really adulting. oh well, I still have this 'kid' side within me but I don't think it will ever leave. we are all a kid inside. maybe sometimes kid, most of the time adult, or vice versa. but yeah, both a kid and an adult, I guess.
