You know, I need to work on just being grateful. My parents just dropped by and my mother left me almost two weeks' worth of groceries. Apart from bafflement (where are we going to stick all this stuff? How are we going to finish it in time?) and relief that we're going to have a cheap couple of weeks, there's a very persistent voice in the back of my head that goes "I'm a grown-up! I can do groceries and feed myself and everything! I can do this all by myself because I'm a grown-up!"

Which is possibly the least grown up response possible, so yeah.

The ONE time I tried complaining about that to Dad, he responded: "She likes to. Let her. Besides, I reserve the right to spend your inheritance ON you before I die."

It's still an awesome gesture!

Dito. If I don't let my mom mother me once in a while she gets very unhappy ;-)

Its a parent thing. Kids have to be fed. Period.

And it can get worse. This weekend my mum told Therry to button up his coat because it was cold outside. Refused to let it go until he actually did.

Being a grownup is not cool. We don't ever wanna grow up!

No way! Being a grownup rocks. Pancakes and cake for breakfast FTW!

You don't have to be a grownup to do that!

But other people have to *think* you're a grownup though.
