My Top 10 Favorite Things About Being a Grownup

My kids are always talking about how cool it will be to finally be grownups. They’re always wishing time away, even as I’m begging it to slow down. It made me start thinking about this whole grownup thing I have going on.

Sometimes I get bogged down with the responsible side of grownupness. Bills and insurance and the blah blah blah of existing as a human in the twenty-first century. 

Sidebar: seems to be a lot of blah blah blah, am I right?

Today, I’m thinking about what my kids must see:

1. I get to stay up as late as I want. And I don’t have to take a nap. Unless I want to.

2. I can eat cake for breakfast. Or lunch. Or whenever I want.

3. I get to pick out my own clothes. 

4. I can use the computer. All. The. Time.

5. I get to watch Netflix. Whenever I want.

6. Who decides if we’re going out to eat? This girl!

7. I can drive a car. Which means I can go anywhere I want.

8. I have my own money. I don’t have to ask anyone for it or wait til my birthday to get money to buy things.

9. I don’t have to go to school anymore.

10. No one’s the boss of me.

Yeah, being a grownup is pretty amazing. 

What do you think the best part is?

  1. Love this!
    My favorite thing about being a grown up… If I don’t like what I made for dinner, I don’t have to eat it! That was the worst for me as a kid.

  2. Hi Meredith! How are you? This post reminds me of my son. He wishes to grow up soon so he can drive his car and do so many things, etc. At the back of my head I am saying how it is just nice to be a child too. Care free, no serious responsibilities. Being a grown up can be tough. πŸ˜‰ Take care! Sorry haven’t been really “around”. Crazy busy!
