It still amazes me that I'm the grown up. Even after getting married, having a baby and another one on the way, I forget that sometimes, until a smack in the face reminds me. I just got an awesomely huge bill from my OB that included some crazy non-standard genetic testing done from my initial bloodwork. I specifically told them I didn't want any genetic testing done because we didn't want false positives and wouldn't do anything about the results anyway. Flash to a couple of days ago when I open my explanation of benefits invoice and in addition to huge DENIEDs written all over it there is also a boat load of testing that isn't standard and I definitely didn't sign off on. The grown up realization hit me when I realized I have to sort this out. I'll have to make the calls, sit on hold, have all of my statements handy and fight to not get royally screwed over. Sometimes being a grown up sucks, I wish I could just have my lollipop, sit in a chair swinging my feet back and forth and let the adults sort this stuff out. Does this feeling go away? Will I always be shocked that I'm a grown up?
