February 2013 Moms

You know you are getting old when...

two glasses of wine about knocks you off your feet.  I haven't drank in 3 yrs (always bfing and pregnant!!) and decided a few glasses of wine would be okay with dinner.  Baby has expressed milk if needed.  I ate FOOD (an entire dinner + two brownies) with my two small glasses of wine (maybe 6oz!) and felt like hell afterwards!!!  When did I get this old?!  What makes you feel old?

Re: You know you are getting old when...

  • Going to a high school graduation pool party and realizing 1. I graduated high school when these current graduates were still in diapers and 2. My days of wearing teeny weeny polka dot bikinis like these 18 year olds is long gone.

    Oh well, it was all fun while it lasted... Now on to awesome, long awaited, new adventures with my munchkin [and black onepiece swimsuits haha].
  • I'm a teacher, and the very first class I had when I started teaching are now going to be freshman in high school. They were third graders when I had them!

    Really?  10 yrs?  When I had to tell a sub I'd been teaching for the last decade, that made feel old too.  And it was her first year, so she looked like such a baby to me!

  • I love watching sports....grew up watching a lot of baseball, football, and hockey.....well the other night during the hockey game they were talking about how one player was near the end of his career and he was 34!  I am 35 and will be 36 in July and it suddenly dawned on me that people my age are considered "old" in sports now....:(

  • Two things for me

    1. The students I teach were babies when 9/11 happened. I did a lesson on it this year and got so many questions, because most of them had no clue.

    2. My knee hurts before it rains....no joke.

    The 9 11 one gets me too. I was there running for my life and I talk to some people now about it that were just kids at the time. Aging is just so strange.

  • We had a pop music station on our satellite TV playing and I hadn't heard of 90% of the artists.  I guess it's time for the adult contemporary station.

    When you get the invite for your high school reunion and people start calling me ma'am now.

    In my ESL class the other night we were discussing the difference between Miss/Ms./Mrs. and Miss / Ma'am. I told them then when I'm back in the States now and someone calls me ma'am, I just think to myself, "When did I become a ma'am and not a miss??" Sad

    And after only wearing bikinis since I was like 14, I got my first one-piece this year. :-( No stretch marks after DD1, but DD2 did me in.

  • I took my kids to the park on Friday and there were high school kids all over the place, climbing on the slides and swings. I found myself wanting to yell at them... 

    Teenage me would have hated the judgmental looks I gave them.

     

    Ugh. I'm not even old. I'm only 24....

  • My parents (who have aged ridiculously well) just started looking semi-seniorly, and I spent a week bugging my husband about "When did my parents get old?"  That made me feel old myself.

    Two years ago, I was teaching 6-12 year olds a dance to the Glee version of PYT; they were so excited because they had all heard it on Glee, but when I asked who knew who Michael Jackson was, only two out of 45 kids raised their hands.  Two!

    I also do this thing where I project how old I will be when LO is a certain age.  I gotta stop doing that.

  • Its a lot harder to lose weight than it used to be.

    I realize how grown up I am when I think about the ten years I've spent with my husband, but I feel so green when I realize, God-willing, we have at least forty more years ahead of us!
