It’s an age thing

Signs that give away you might have grown up. Or, at least, that you are in the process.

  1. You turn on and off the light switch in your room –and in any other room for that matter- to turn on and off the light in that room and not just for your personal pleasure.
  2. You are starting to think that maybe you weren’t born to pee and poop your pants. You murder the thought after 5 seconds.
  3. Your pictures are starting to mean something. In a really broad sense of the word ‘meaning’.
  4. You can browse the pages of a whole children’s book without necessarily tearing them. ‘Necessarily’ is the key here.
  5. You wouldn’t trade your toys for a new Tupperware’s product anymore.
  6. The idea of not sleeping for two or three nights in a row doesn’t turn you on anymore.
  7. Most of your friends are attending nursery school.
  8. When you climb on all over the table and start turning around the vase, the thought that you actually might end up in the floor hurt, slightly crosses your mind.
  9. You hang out with younger people than you.
  10. You start wondering for the first time whether there is a  life without pacifier. Only to admit that there isn’t.
  11. You catch yourself singing the alphabet.
  12. You catch yourself touching himself.
  13. You apply your own dress code. No wonder where ‘mix and match’ came from.
  14. You kind of speak. ‘Kind of’ is the key here.
