    You know you're a grown-up when:
    1. You no longer look forward to getting mail.
    2. You sound just like your parents as you reprimand your children.
    3. You wish you could color all day long.
    4. You wish your biggest concern was what toy to play with.

    Nice, Stephanie! I realized I'm a grown-up when I asked for a washer and dryer set for my birthday. What happened to asking for the fun stuff?

    you learn to let go.
    when you think before you speak.
    when you truly know each and every action/s has consequence/s

    When you care more about giving gifts than getting them at Christmas.

    When you get a package in the mail and don't open it right away, after all you know what is in it.

    When you relish taking a nap.

    When you don't get excited by buying something new to wear because you needed it for work....and could care less.

    Oh so many many more things.

    - you know what a cassette tape is (and how to use one. Bonus if you can un-jam a stuck tape)
    - you think that toys these days are way to expensive and break to easily.
    - you are realizing that nearly every movie in the theater is a remake of something you've already seen (bonus when you turn on the radio...wait, what's a radio?)
    - You can reheat something without the use of a microwave (or you call it a microwave oven...)
    - You use the word 'cotillion'
    - You find the over use of the letter 'i' before every word super annoying.
