sometimes it hits me

I really am a grown-up. I am coordinating with my friend who is a co-director of a preschool/learning center to be the photographer for their pictures next month and I had that feeling of, "Huh, I must be a grown-up," wash over me. Obviously plenty of other things in life should make me constantly aware of that, but sometimes weird things trigger the sensation. Perhaps because taking pictures of kids reminds me of being a kid and getting my picture taken, and how "adult" the photographers were. I guess that's me now.

I get that "whoa" feeling occasionally too. It's usually when I'm lying in bed reflecting on life, and I think back to the time when I couldn't wait to get married and have no curfew. Then it hits me: I'm married...with five kids!

When I look at photos from the first year of our marriage I get a different sensation. More along the lines of, "We were SO young! What were our parents thinking to let us start a family?!" It's turned out okay...but we were so young!

Looks like you're not alone. My moments come when I can picture my mom doing the exact same thing I'm in the middle of. Woah.
