...you've gone from discussing your next motorcycle gear purchase to discussing your next baby gear purchase.

...the highlight of Black Friday shopping was the awesome deal on the new vacuum you got.

you ask for tires for Christmas, and get REALLY excited about them too.
I am grateful for the friends I have made on EHell and everything I have learned, but it is time I move on.

Knowing you have the funds to pay for your health insurance makes you want to dance.

When good nutrition is the first priority for meals rather than taste.

Corollary:  When the healthy food becomes tasty!

Also known as, when the oaty bits in Lucky Charms taste better than the marshmallow bits, when vegetables don't have to be forced down but are actually savored, and when wheat bread is preferred over white.

Or conversely:

I can eat dessert FIRST!   :D

You know you are an adult when you set up a budget and stick to it.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

When you have to take vacation to visit your mom.

When you are the one that has to do the laundry, keep the house clean and keep track of everything from groceries to bills.
‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’  attributed to Edmund Burke 1729-1797

This year I want a programmable thermostat.  I don't think I'm getting it.

When Christmas is more of a hassle than it's worth.

When you walk in front of a store and refuse to go in, because the clothes in the window look "too young".

Yep. My heart goes "SQEE! They're so cute!". My mind replies, "Don't even think about it; you're too old."

Or, when you only notice cute clothes because they'd look great on your daughter.

I'm sorry to say there is not one thing on this list that doesn't apply to me.

When all you really want for Christmas is the baby gear you have to buy before February so why not kill two birds with one stone and get Christmas presents out of them too.

When the most important piece of information on a new garment is if its machine washable and not dry clean only.

When sleeping in becomes 8am instead of noon.

That's how you know if you're in HS... I had to wake up at 5:30 to catch the bus that came at 6:10. If I was daring I could lay out everything the night before and sleep till 5:45-5:50. (of course nothing was ever laid out and I had to rely on luck to never leave at home my student ID)

And as for adult: When you're the one deboning the chicken breasts for dinner. Not mom. (mom was standing next to me talking)
