THINGS I THOUGHT WERE CLICHÉS UNTIL I EXPERIENCED THEM FIRST HAND

  1. Having a crazy/difficult mother-in-law
    I thought that surely everyone was exaggerating. Until I got one. She's generous and loving but certifiably insane.
  2. An unorganized Tupperware drawer
    It's like the sitcom gag of a teenager stuffing their closet so full that when you open it everything explodes out. Only it's real. And it's my own damn fault.
  3. The joys and hardships of being a parent
    It is just as wonderful and difficult as everyone always tells you. Only times a zillion.
  4. That time seems to go faster the older you get
    If my sense of time was accurate it would still be 2011.
  5. There's no time like the present.
    I spent so much of my youth & 20s worrying - it's taken me years to be able to make a conscious effort to be present but it's true. If I want to do something (within reason) I usually make it happen instead of waiting for SOMEDAY! 🙂🧀
