Is this weird?

I was babysitting a friend of mine's child and it occurred to me that, when this child's mother was a baby, I used to babysit her and now I'm babysitting her child. I feel so old. Is that weird? I'm 21 and I feel old.

  • How old is the mom? I think more and more teens are having children.

  • Wow, that would probably make me feel a little bit old, too. I know that there is a family who's youngest I babysat when she was just a baby and now she's getting ready to graduate from high school, and it is so weird to think about all the time that has gone by, and how fast!

  • I would probably feel weird about that, considering you are only 21. Seems like she had kids really young?

  • Yeah, she's only three years younger then me. I used to babysit her when I was 11 and she was eight until she was like 10 or 11. I babysat her younger siblings too and now I'm babysitting her 8 month old. She is a real young mommy. Her mother says that I was a bad influence.

  • When I said she was a baby I didn't really mean a little baby. Even though she was eight I consider her a baby.
