Now that I am the ripe old age of 25 and a half, and heading into my "late" twenties (gasp), I have noticed something.
Some of the feelings I thought would go away never have. And I suspect they never will.
I've read a lot of blogs and met a lot of people. I've been to a lot of houses and I've had a lot of company. And there is one thing that stands out amongst all of that interaction: we are all people, women, moms, just doing what we need to do to get by. And along with that comes all of the normal human emotions. Insecurity. Frustration. Feeling left out. Sometimes you feel self confident and totally in your element, and sometimes you feel just plain dumb.
I was hoping I would outgrow all of that. But apparently it grows with you.
(And as I type this I hear my oven clicking, implying that I left my oven on all night. Uh, super. I so do not have it all together...)
Edited to Add:
Another sign I do not have it together? I totally meant to save this as a draft, and only realized it was published when I got an email saying I had a comment! So there you have it. An unedited sloppily published post. And guess what? I'm leaving it that way.
