I don’t wanna grow up.

4 Jul

Day 4 of camp has two parts: First, what has surprised me the most about being an adult? Second, what have I learned about myself from blogging? I’ll tackle them separately.

I don’t think I was really prepared for how hard it is to be an adult. You don’t get a break from it, or at least I don’t. Once the kids came along it got even harder. There should be a test or something to become a parent. To have to take responsibility for another human being, and they’re so tiny and helpless. It’s a lot of work…hard work. Growing up, the adults in my life made it look so easy, but I haven’t found being an adult too easy at all. There are days I long for the carefree days of my youth. Not a care in the world. No responsibility. Those were the days.


What have I learned about myself by blogging? I’ve learned that I enjoy writing after all. I’ve learned that other women are going through the very same things that I am, and I think that’s the most important thing I’ve figured out. Before I started blogging I didn’t get to hear other stories of mothers like me. I thought I was the only one who struggled with the job of wife and mother. Through my blogging I’ve met so many amazing women (though not in real life) who have been supportive, helpful, and kind. I’ve gotten some great advice and picked up some great tips to make my life a little easier. My only hope is that I have paid it forward by helping another woman somehow.

Stop by and visit some of the other campers to see what they have to say.
