How old are your children, how old are you, how old is your mother?

My son is one
I am 19
My mom is 34

Everyone always thinks me and my mom are friends and that my son is hers. Which is funny because my mom is white, I'm half black/half white, and my son is 3/4black, 1/4 white, and looks like me with lighter hair.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a mom, my sons grandma, be obviously older, would people still assume the same thing.

Ever experience this?

  • My mom is 50
    I am 25
    My oldest is 5, middle is 3 1/2 and youngest is 8 months.

    In the past we have been in that situation and before I could say anything my mom snatched up my daughter, hugged her tight and said, "YEAH! She is my little baby girl!" lol

  • No, I waited quite a while to have kids. So my son is 2 1/2, I'm 39 (pregnant with our second), and my mom is 65. Nobody ever confused us for siblings, heh.

  • My girls are 6 and 7. I am 26 and my mother is 42. People often don't know what to think when my mother, my kids, and I go somewhere together. My mom doesn't look any older than 30.

    My son is 5

    and my mother is 62. I have never ran into that situation but I think it would be kind of nice. I had no luck getting pregnant earlier my first came when i was 35.
