This thread is just as its title is- You know you're growing up when... Ok, so I'll start.

You know you're growing up when you start getting more phone calls than your mother.
...When you realise it's YOUR underwear your mom is hanging on the clothesline for all the neighbours to see.

Your turn.

You know you're growing up when your 7 little siblings start teasing you about any guy your age.

You know you're growing up when you start liking all the tv shows, movies, toys, whatever you liked when you were a kid again?

When you look at the mirror more often than tv programs; when your mom need not remind you to go to shower any more; when you go to school with a strong beating heart, looking forward to see the person from your class who drive you crazy.
