Feeling All Grown Up
Do you ever have moments where you really feel grown up? Besides the obvious answers like buying a house or having a baby which are really grown up things we fall into. I'll give you an example.
Tonight I came inside from taking Ali outside and the house smelled like cornbread and home made squash casserole (leftovers from New Year's Day feast) and the scents of my childhood came rushing back to me. I have vivid memories of waking up from naps after school and volleyball practice and hearing pots and pans clanging downstairs and smelling whatever my mom was cooking for dinner. We had squash casserole often - a family favorite. So anyway, tonight as I smelled it in my own house it really made me realize that I am a grown up. I pay the bills, I feed my children and put them to bed, and I cook squash casserole.
