Do y'all ever feel like you are playing a role? Today, I dropped my toddler off at preschool, then headed to the grocery store. As I strolled the aisles in my black skinny pants, striped long cardigan and white drapey tee concealing my burgeoning belly, I felt like one of the cute yuppie moms that I babysat for in Atlanta during law school. I felt like I was playing the part as I loaded my station wagon with a gallon of organic milk, Greek yogurt and Cheerios.
It still baffles me that I have a child old enough to have conversations. When nannying during law school, I remember imagining myself as a mom, managing young children and a home. Now, when college students at brunch ooh and ahh over Dell Harper's cuteness, I see them envisioning a future of post church brunches with their own cute toddlers and husbands, just as I did.
So basically, this entire ramble is just about how I still can't believe I'm a grownup . . .
