5 Reasons I'm a Grandma

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM
I may be 27 years old, but I think I'm secretly a Grandma. Theo always tells me I'm one and I'm beginning to realize I have more in common with my Mimi than I thought.

Reason #1. I'm in my bed by 11 pm at the latest
By the time 9 pm rolls around, yes even on the weekends, I'm starting to yawn and thinking my bed sounds like a good idea. I love my sleep and need a good 8 hours each night. I'm actually worse than my Mimi because she at least stays up to finish the 11 o'clock news! I have no problems falling asleep either. As soon as my head hits that pillow I'm out like a light!



Reason #2. I'm obsessed with my dog.
I could stare at Pixie all day, I talk about her nonstop, and she's pretty much the center of everything I do. Theo never grew up with a dog so he doesn't get it. Which was made apparent when he told me with a scared look on his face "You love that dog more than just a dog. You love her like she's your actual child." Yes I do. Sometimes I think I actually birthed her. 



Reason #3. I dress like I'm 75 years old.
My favorite things to wear are oversized blouses and shift dresses. It may not be the sexiest thing but I think I look cute and am comfortable. Theo is always asking me why I don't wear more stuff like this
Ha! This just makes me laugh.

But this is more my style




Reason #4. I take a good 5 or so pills a day.
 I take Vitamin D3 for bone health, Zyrtec for my allergies, two blood pressure pills for my Kidney Disease, and a multivitamin. Then there's also my nasal spray and my eye drops. I'm seriously thinking about investing in one of these. It's really frustrating when you can't remember which pill you've already taken!



Reason #5. I only carry big purses
I love a purse where you can carry everything but the kitchen sink in it. I mean Mary Poppins is my idol. You never know when you might be hungry and want a snack, or you have a blister pop up and you need a band aid. Feeling sick? I'll pull out my stethoscope. You always gotta be prepared.


Tell me I'm not alone! Are you more like a Grandma or a teenager?!

  1. Grandma for sure! I mumble "there are kids listening and what is the world coming to?" every time I hear an inappropriate song on the radio.

  3. I"m lucky if I see 10 PM, much less 11! L and I are usually heading to bed around 8:30 - although when his alarm goes off at 4:15 we're happy we did so :)

  4. I hate to break it to you, but it only gets worse....I'm 29 with a one year old and I'm ready to go up to bed by 9 and I'm lucky if I can stay away until 11pm. It's pathetic. You won't believe it now, but just wait until you have a baby and see how your puppy takes 2nd fiddle!!

  5. Girl, I'm right there with you! My birthday is coming up and I planned on going out downtown for my bday and then I realized staying out past 11 pm just wasn't going to happen so now my bday adventure is at a much earlier (and less WOOHOO!) time and venue. And I'm the exact same way with my dog!

  7. I'm right there with you for so many of these! Tight clothes? Not my style! Give me something oversized and comfy. My husband makes fun of me because like clockwork the clock reads 10 and I'm heading to bed.

  8. Hahahaha you are so funny. I'm a bit of a Grandma too I guess...I'm in bed no later than 10pm every night-even on most weekends! And as you know I'm obsessed with my dog. I'm also most comfortable in the kind of clothes you described....I don't think that's Grandma-ish though, I think it's conservative and classy!

  9. Hahaha you basically just described me too!! Except I do go to bed pretty late, well I used to that changed after I had kids and my dog obsession did decrease a little but I still treat her like a freaking human!!

  12. I'm definitely on the grandma side myself!! I need my 8 hours, too and just get cranky when I stay out late now haha. I'll probably be even worse once we get a dog because I'll just want to stay home with it!

  15. I'm totally a 75 year old stuck in a 27 y/o body haha!! Love to get to bed early, stay in on friday nights and watch a movie and lets not even get started with how large my purses are!

  16. This is great! Oh my, I'm in trouble. I like to be in bed by 9, I take so many vitamins and supplements a day I can't count and I'm overly obsessed with my Pixie haha. But to be honest, I wouldn't change any of it for the world ;) You are not alone dear. And I've never thought you dressed like a 75 year old haha!

  17. You're getting the mega-sized pill box for Xmas if you don't have one by then haha. You're like a grandma in that you love your wine a lot too (ha but in that we are both 75 years old).

  18. This has got to be one of my favorite posts of yours. haha! I'm a night owl, but I'm always exhausted by 10. For some reason, I just don't have the discipline to get to bed early.

    I'm totally with you on not dressing sexy in a "tight" way, I'm more into a loose, comfortable style. COMFORT being the key. :)

    You forgot that you're a nurse, so you're always wearing sensible, comfy shoes. :) What's more grandma than that?

  19. Hahaha, this cracks me up, especially the purse thing--my grandma's purse is so heavy and is sacred...heaven forbid someone else should touch it! I definitely feel like an old lady sometimes!

  20. AH! I never thought of myself as a grandma, but I must be - I fit 4 of the 5 on your list! I am in bed (or asleep on the couch) by 9:30 most nights, I love my pup, shift dresses are my favorite, and my purses are always big. xoxo

  21. Oh geez, I think I JUST realized I am half grandma!! PS, you may dress like a grandma (your words, NOT MY THOUGHTS AT ALL) but you are so stinkin cute and petite you look GREAT doing so!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Um, I aim for a 10 pm bedtime at all times!!

  23. If these make you a grandma than I am one too! I joke around that I love my dog so much this may be a puppy inside me! haha which is GROSS if you really think about it - but just meaning that I adore him to death. Seriously don't know how anyone goes through life without a dog!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha I love this! I'm totally right there with you (and am even worse now that I have kids)! I would die without my "Mary Poppins" bags and swear that I must have been a boy scout in a past life ("always be prepared")!!

  25. haha definitely more grandma than teenager. jennifer love hewitt looks amazing, but even she doesn't wear that in real life ;) as we get older, i think most of us go for comfort rather than .. whatever that is trying to achieve haha. and when i read the 11 pm i was like that's so late! haha.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bahahaha! Well if it makes you feel any better, I can agree with almost all of these! So we can be Grandma's together! :)
