Do you ever get this?

I am in my late 20's & people think I am younger, like 18 or 19. I remember one time I was walking in the store with my oldest & someone was complimenting on my daughters hair & then asked me if I was her sister lol! What?I don't think I look that young but i guess ill take it as a compliment. Hopefully I'll age gracefully.

  • I sometimes get woman who looks at the way I discipline my son and then ask him does your mommy know that she yell at you like that. For which my son sarcastically look at me and say mommy do yo know what you do when you yell. He is two going on 3 but somehow know how to be this way naturally.
