  • Not older. Just a little more worn. You have to remember that you rented out your body to the baby for 9 months. It takes a while to bounce back. :-)

  • you're always getting each second passes, it happens in a blink, in a flash, it happens in the time to take to look back. lol, time goes too fast, which means we're getting older too fast. anyway, yeah i go a little slower than i did when i was a teen. as for thinking more slowly, sometimes it takes a minute for me to decide on things, when in my younger years it wouldn't have taken but a second. i think, depending on what you're deciding, with kids and responsibilities, you have to consider consequences for you, AND your family, more than you did before you had all that. all in all, i think it's a mix of getting older and having kids, it all gets to you, slowing you down a bit. wow i hope that made any sense lol

  • No---maybe you have a vitamin deficiency? Need more sleep? It will get better. Just because you are getting older it doesn't mean you have to FEEL old!
