They say you're only as old as you feel. My best friend celebrates his 30th birthday today, and soon I will join him in the 30 + club.
Whenever I go grocery shopping, I feel like an "adult". I don't know why, maybe it's just a thing that "grown-ups" usually do. When I look around the store, there's mostly 40-50 year olds there. I see lots of parents pushing their kids in the cart. Maybe that's why I feel older when I shop.
Of course all of this is a moot point, when they look in my cart and I have granola bars, pudding, sweetened cereal, juice, and chocolate milk. My cart is the unofficial wish list for any kid.
I quickly jump back into my "adult" role when I load up the minivan to go home....
I feel that I am where I am supposed to be at this point of my life. Parenthood, and all of the things that come with it are all that I could have hoped for. I can't wait.
On a side note, I believe that I'm over the shock (see last post) and am coming to terms with it.
