Thanks to the hitching and the generosity of our family and friends, we have found ourselves with brand-new (matching!) bedroom furniture, complete (matching!) sets of dishes and silverware, a new grill (Chris can now grill more than two servings at a time!) and lots more.
Adding to that, we now refer to each other as "husband" and "wife" and it all seems grown-up beyond how I feel, and I wonder if I'll ever actually feel like an adult.
Will it hit me when we buy a house? When we start a family?
When my mom was my age, she already had a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old and it seemed as though she always knew the answer to everything -- and not just an answer, but the right answer. I was always confident that she always knew the right thing to do and the best way to do it ... if she was just figuring it out as she went, as I imagine I will, I never caught on. Maybe this is just the way children look at their parents ... and maybe nobody ever really feels grown up.
