What is the real definition of grown up? I used to think it was when a child turned eighteen. Truth is, they may be an adult now, but they are still part of your budget. The next time I hear the term "I'm grown now", I think I'm going to redefine what grown up is. Meaning... grown ups pay their own cell phone bills, buy their own clothes and cook their own meals.
Oh for the days when our children only played dress up. Now dress up is for keeps. Have you ever thought you misplaced an article of clothing or shoes only later to see them walking out the door on your "grown up" child?
As I handle all of the grown ups we have, all I can do is pray. I try to remember that I did my best to "train up a child in the way he should go." Now I am waiting for the promise "and when he is old he will not depart from it". I better get back to praying.
