Adulthood is no child’s play

When I was a kid I couldn’t wait to be an adult and live the life I always wanted, but getting there now I wish I could go back to when I was a child.

Adulthood comes with so many responsibilities and as one ages, it all increases.

I can remember the day I had a full nap unlike when I was a kid mom could always force us to sleep, these days it never just happens.

I miss the moments I didn’t have to worry about what to eat as mom will always cook the meals and set the table before I go to school nor after I come back to school; I just didn’t have to worry about anything.

I always had my laundry done and I didn’t know how it was done; I always came back home to see no clothes in the dirty clothes bin.

These days it feels like nothing can be done unless I do them; when I was living with my parents I always complained when I was asked to do the house chores and I couldn’t wait to leave and have my own house.

When I got admission into college; I rented a house immediately and couldn’t wait to start living alone and getting things done my way.

Few months into staying alone I couldn’t wait to run back home at the end of the semester; mom always helped with house chores and here I was doing everything all alone.

I often wondered how she was able to manage the house finances and here I was spending over 6 months of the family budget in a month. Adulthood is sure not funny.
