    The Child In Me

    I'm legally an adult. I drive a car. I have an apartment. I'd always thought of myself as being fairly independent for these reasons. Last night, unable to sleep again, it really hit me though. I honestly feel as though I'm basically a child trapped inside an adult's body. I...

    I'm an adult, a good mother, live on my own (and have for almost a decade). I know all these things to be fact, but I don't FEEL it... I'm worried I never will.

    I Still Like Children's Stuff!

    Yes, you've read it right. I like children's songs, fairy tales, children's games and I still like to wear pink glittery clothes while any other girl my age doesn't like them anymore (which is probably also the reason why I can't seem to find them in any clothing store!). I...

    I'm A Child

    So I guess I'm in the adult world at the moment. I feel so left out. I feel like a little girl inside someone who looks older. In a meeting the other day I wanted to turn to the person next to me and makes jokes about the speaker, like a cheeky school girl would, but I know...

    The Place Of Play

    Many adults seem to lose it, but in my heart I still have the place of play. I remember how, with my ex, we could build things in lego and lose track of time and suddenly realised it was 11 pm and we had eaten nothing since lunch. And I can be engrossed in children's books and...
