Daily Prompt: All Grown Up

When was the first time you really felt like a grown up (if ever)?

I have a lot of these moments wandering through my head.  I think the first time would have to be when my youngest brother and I started taking the bus to swim practice during the summer after I turned 12.  I was the older sister and thus charged with making sure my brother and I made it to the Pavilion on time and then got out of there on time to catch the bus home.  This was also the summer I started watching after my brother so my parents could get some relief from daycare costs.  It felt like a big responsibility to me at the time, and things were added to it as the years passed.
