So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

From Young to Old

I'm now the old mom at school. My friend and I have discussed this. With our oldest children, we're the 'young' mom. Now, with our "babies" we are the old moms.

I encountered this today at school for a volunteer orientation meeting. All the other kindergarten room moms are these young 20-somethings. I'm the approaching-40 mom. *sigh*

But, I was one of the skinnier moms. So, that is something to be grateful for. I also didn't have to tow little children with me, which is nice.

I don't know what is up with me. I give up the soccer team mom thing and take up a committee spot at the middle school for PTA and room mom duties for both little kids. What was I thinking?

    Like a fine wine or insurance rates you get better with age! There's something to be said for experience.

    Plus I still think you're a hot mama (granted my eyesight is going and I'm just not as lucid as I once was, but still you're a graceful, ageless beauty).

    Could be worse - by the time Hedgehog gets around to Kindergarten I'll be the mom who's in her 40s. And one of the grandparents will be knocking on 80s door.

    I'm way older than you with a 1st grader, so you can shut up now! LOL

    If we were taking our daughter to school (we homeschool, so there will be no "going to school" in the traditional sense), I would be the oldest mom by far. I turned 47 this year. My youngest daughter is 6, my oldest son is 18.

    Old moms are HOT! Or is that me having a hot flash?
