When did you realise you'd grown up? For me it was sometime in between buying a house and being referred to as "lady" instead of "girl" when out and about - e.g. - "this lady has a query", instead of "this girl was wondering...". When did THAT happen? (Also; as a sidenote - LADY?! Moi? LOL)
The listeners of the Early Breakfast Show - also known as my favourite people in the world - were quick to chime in with their own experiences of when they realised they had grown up. Have a look!
You HAVE grown up when you start drinking wine end eating brie on the sofa!

Hey Paula - Ollie from Galway here. I realised I had grown up when I got divorced a few years ago and realised I had to cook, clean, iron and constantly nag at myself
I knew I had grown up when I realised I'd rather sit in on a Saturday night with my 2 little princesses instead of going out on the tare! And I used to be the ultimate beer hound! But the hangover is just not worth it anymore! Kevin.
