Sign of the times

So, I’m in this training class tonight with co-workers whose average age is probably 20–if you take me(41) out of the stats. We’ve been together all week and there is one girl (about 19) who looks VERY familiar but I can’t place her. We get to talking about it and she says, “I was thinking that you looked familiar too. Because you look just like one of my friends-” At this point I’m just giggling inside thinking how great I must look tonight. Until she finishes the sentence- “mothers.” Ugh.

    I feel your pain – I am almost 30-10 (next month) and going to UNL half-time. I am old enough to be the kids’ mother! Half the time in group projects the other students call me “Mom”. Lovely huh?!

  5. Hey—some of the best connections I’ve made lately are with “kids” who are 1/2 my age! It’s great—embrace it–you’ve got so much to offer anyone at any age!!

  6. lol I get so caught off-guard when someone calls me ‘tannie’ (aunty) In our culture it is seen as a sign of respect to call an older person ‘tannie’. I still don’t see myself being a ‘tannie’ lol
