Every group of friends has an old soul in their midst. The one who stays home, the one who always brings snacks, the careful caregiver that everyone learns to love. When that person is you, it is easy to feel a bit on the outside, but being the grandma of your friends comes with lots of perks and with the right group of people, you'll always know exactly how you fit in.
1. You always fall asleep first.
It doesn't matter if the group chat is hoppin' or if this is your first sleepover in a month after it passes 11 o'clock, grandma is going to bed.
2. You never go out.
Why party when my couch is right here and I've got a backlog of books to read?
3. You're always the designated driver.
When your friends do drag you out, there's a 100% chance that you're going to be the DD.
4. You never know what's trendy.
I've owned my favorite comfy sweater for at least four years.
5. You're social media challenged.
Sticking to the basics is the best we can manage.
6. You're in charge of safety.
You definitely have a first aid kit with you at all times and everyone knows to buckle their seat belts in your car.
7. Everyone comes to you for advice.
When you're born 80 years old wisdom just comes with the territory, even if you're just stumbling through life like everyone else.
8. You're always the mediator.
You've mastered staying neutral and everyone knows not to try and drag you into fights.
