You Know You're A Grown-up When...

...picking a big fight with your guy at midnight isn't nearly as gratifying as it once was. You want your sleep !

...dropping $50 on your favorite body cream is a reasonable expenditure because you're clear on the meaning of " occasional splurge."

...just thinking about the most beloved candy of your childhood ( Shock Tarts, anyone? ) makes your teeth hurt. much as it breaks your heart (and it does), you stand back, and allow your children to: struggle in sports; sob when they don't get invited to the slumber party; and receive a lousy grade when they don't turn in their social studies assignments on time. realize-with, it must be said, a touch of horror-that routines are , in fact comforting. start exercising and watching your weight not only to fit into size 10 jeans but also because it feels good to take care of yourself.

...even though you don't "do " hospital visits, his-and her-bridal showers, or funerals, you go anyway because it means a lot to someone else that you are there.

I found this article in the March 2008 issue of Redbook magazine. I thought it was so funny, and so true.
Please share some more ...
