During the couple of days beforehand, I was having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around the fact that I am, in fact, qualified and grown-up enough to have another person's freedom in my charge. I kept having to issue these little mental mantras to myself, reminders like, "I am 27 years old", "I am a smart person", "I am a competent attorney". Even once I was all suit-and-heeled-up standing at the lectern in front of the judges, it felt like my Mom should duck into the courtroom and say, "OK sweetheart, enough playing pretend for now, it's time to clean your room."
So, for this week's poll:
Is there a time when you stopped and wondered, "When did I become such an adult all of a sudden?"
Comment and discuss.
