Now that I'm an adult...

I'm tired of being the grown up. Period. Some days it just sucks.

I'd like to turn in my badge... the one that says, "You're the grown up, you make the decisions." I'd like to go back to the carefree days of summer - the ones my mom would say, "You can play outside or in the basement." Not the ones where I sit down and work on the budget. Or the ones where I am constantly fielding questions of "Can I?" or "I want!" Or where there is always something to be done... dinner planned? dishes done? laundry washed/dried/folded/put away?

Since it's not a choice, I guess I'll put on my big girl panties and deal with it.

I told Jaysen I couldn't go and play the other day because I was clearing up, and he said "Well, it will only get messy again, so you might as well play and clear it up later, as you'd be clearing up ANYWAY."

The housework was left, and I sat on the lounge floor having fun. I might have been wearing my big boy pants, but they really needed Spiderman on them for a while! hehe
