When did that happen!? After reading Suzannah's post on roasting an entire chicken, I realized that I feel very much the same as she does... I'm just a kid!
- I prefer pop tarts over healthy cereals
- I eat sour patch kids like they are going out of style
- My favorite store is Old Navy
- I prefer Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy and Chuck over anything even remotely intellectual on TV
- My idea of a good read is a magazine
- With my bangs, I look like I'm in my late teens, not late twenties
[I'm in my late 20s?!]
- I waste quarters on gumball machines
- I still say 'I have to pee'
- I prefer pop over water and fruit snacks over vegetables
Let's face it: There's nothing grown up about me other than the fact that I have two babies to take care of. I have to admit that I walked out of the hospital with the boys thinking 'they are crazy for letting me take these babies home with me! I'm just a kid myself!' Does everyone go through this realization that, while they might still feel predominantly like a child, their age betrays the truth? On that note, should we aim to lose our childLIKEness like we aim to lose our childISHness? Maybe that's a little too deep for this post...
This list is no where near complete, but in the upcoming 2 years (before I'm 30?!) I want to work on the following:
- clipping coupons
- flossing daily
- using 'anti-aging' cream on my face
- buying a grown up purse
- writing more letters
- cooking more using recipes
- grocery shopping with a purpose and specific meals in mind
- and I want to roast an entire chicken too!
Baby steps though... I'll start with roasting my chicken nuggets : )
