Getting older

Do you ever have those moments where you feel older than what you really are? I'm 25 yrs old but sometimes I feel like I'm 25 going on 40! Here are some examples of what I mean:

  • When I'm at the store, the young cashier calls me "Ma'am." Do I really look like a "Ma'am" already?
  • My daughter already talks about the boys she likes and how she wants to be a mom! Yes the gray hairs are sprouting up!!
  • I find myself not liking certain Rap/Hip Hop songs because of their lyrics. Now I really feel like my parents!
  • I'm usually in bed by 9:30-10:00pm.
  • I actually enjoy watching the news and reading the newspaper.
  • Kids that I used to babysit are all grown up and some even have kids of their own now!

But, after all of these things, it made me feel a little better the other day when I was in line at the deli getting lunch and an older, elderly man said to his friend, "We'd better let this young lady go so she can get back to school."

I feel the same way tons of time. Last night at gymnastics I was complaining because I felt old and one of my students said, "You look like you are in your twenties" so that was a relief. We are both still young and have a lot to learn and do yet.

I am too there with ya. Only I would like to add I find myself turning the tv alot when the kids our out watching it because so many shows are NOT appropriate for kids. Amazing huh! The things we think of now that we have kids! lol

You always seem to read my mind..
