Adultier …

13 Jan


Yes … this has happened to me.


“The horrifying moment when you’re looking for an adult but then realize that you are an adult. So you look for an older adult, someone successfully adulting. An adultier adult.”


Lucky … I’m getting adultier now.

Not quite there yet, but getting there.

    I’m 41 and most days I just don’t feel like an adult. I pay bills, take care of my family, work, and such, but when I was a kid I thought adults had it all together, and I don’t feel that way. Do any adults have it figured out?

      No. Maybe when you’re a member of AARP you’re at adultier status. Dude and I totally know what you mean when I was younger I swore adults were on top of everything, well some of them…

    So true!
    But now that I’m the adultiest of all (!) I can’t pretend to be young anymore……

      You can always have a young heart, but know since you’re adultier people are always going to be asking you advice.

    When our mom died in September, my younger sister informed me that I’m now the Matriarch of the family. I found that really scary. 😕

      Sometimes realizing that we’re adultier it’s pretty freaky. But I know you’ll rock as the matriarch.

    Love the word. Adultier. And yes! I relate SO much to that thought!

      Yup, I’m totally aiming for that. Got it on the fridge and everything. Ha! Had to pass it on 🙂
