Going Off Topic (#30) Too Much Adulting

It’s been a while since my last proper off-topic ramble, but I desperately need one today! My blog activity has been a bit all or nothing because of slow cinema releases but I’m hoping that’s about to change this Friday. I tend to only write full posts for new releases, and I just haven’t had as many available to watch, and even less that I find myself with lots to say about. This Friday in the UK though we’ve got 4 new releases, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Halloween Kills, Ron’s Gone Wrong and The Last Duel. Wow! My daughter turns 4 on Monday and this weekend is set to be a lot of chaotic fun, so hopefully I’ll find the time.

Speaking of my daughter turning 4, that’s mainly what brought me to start this post! I feel like I’ve done too much adulting today. My little one starts school next September and now is the time to apply for her place. A lot of schools still aren’t doing tours because of COVID which doesn’t help, but yesterday me and my girl went to view a prospective school. She was THRILLED. I mean, she just wanted to join in with everything going on. She even spotted a friend from her nursery and off they went to the playground together! I think we all know who’s going to be crying at the school gates next year, and it won’t be her.


But MAN, talk about imposter syndrome. Here I am, a parent, walking around a school holding an actual conversation with a Head Teacher? Nope. I can’t do that. I’m not grown up enough for that. But I did! And I think I did it convincingly! Dare I say it was even quite fun? When I was about to turn 18 I had a bit of a freak out about being ‘officially’ an adult and that’s the same kind of feeling I’m getting now. What if I don’t pick a good school? What if I pick the perfect school, but we don’t get offered a place there?

Phew. Thanks for letting me get all of that off my chest. If you need me this weekend I’m going to be hiding in a corner with a glass of wine, looking through my daughter’s baby photos and wondering how she grew up so fast.

  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter! It’s amazing how fast time passes with the little ones but on the bright side a good thing about my nephew growing up is I can introduce him to much better movies!

    Have a great weekend to you and your family!


    1. That is very true! We’re going through a Frozen phase here so I’m rapidly turning from loving the movie (when I could watch it on my own terms) so singing Let It Go whilst trying to sleep late at night!
      Thank you ❤


  2. I know how you feel! My son just turned 10 and I can’t possibly be old enough to have a child in double digits but here I am. He’s going to think I’m so embarrassing soon. The amount of new releases that are dropping this week. My theater got Lamb, I’m Your Man, Halloween Kills and The Last Duel. How am I supposed to make time for all of this?!


  3. I’ve been an official adult for a while, but thank goodness, I’ve never felt like one. And yes, they do grow up fast–wait until she’s 23 like mine and where the hell did the time go!!
