Hello, My Name Is Jackie and I Am a Grownup.

As I was having a conversation with a girlfriend this morning, I came face to face with the magnitude of this whole adulthood/parenting thing.

"I have a PTA meeting tomorrow."

Words that have never escaped my mouth now slipped off my tongue with such ease. PTA? Like PARENT/Teachers? I knew the moment that sentence was uttered, life would never be the same.

I am a grownup. And this whole elementary school thing -- yeah, we're not just visiting.

What have you heard yourself say that took you by surprise?
