Flashback Friday ~ This Is How I See Myself.

Most of the time I forget I'm an adult.  I think some one's going to bust in my house and send me back to school.  I still feel like I'm playing pretend.  It's the best kind of pretend.  I get snapped out of this fantasy world when I sit down to pay our two mortgages. I get snapped out of the fantasy world when I realize that in less than thirty days, I'll be the landlord to that baby I'm holding.  I get snapped out of it when I look down and my pants are no longer pegged in a desperate attempt to be as cool as my big sister. I get snapped out of it when I realize that it's been over thirteen years since I lived in that house that I still think of as home.  I get snapped out of it when I remember no one I know lives in that house anymore.  I get snapped out of it as I type this post a two year old is singing "I have a dream..."  at my feet.  Sometime though it's nice to still think of yourself as twelve year old. 

Check out more Flashbacks at Christopher and Tia's. 


  1. Oh, to be 12 again. Well, at least without the responsibility and the crappy parts of being an adult.

  2. I love this post; I am still surprised that I get to drive by myself...


Tell me all about it.
