Ouch! I think that was my ego. 8(

At a Valentine's Party today, I was talking to another mom friend. The topic came around to ages. She asked me how old I am.

me: "I'm 29."

her, with a chuckle and a wink: "29 and holding, huh?"

me: "Um, no. I'm just twenty nine."

her: "Oh...when were you born?"

me: "October of 1982."

*sigh* I'm going to try to let the fact that I have four kids, including a toddler and a 5month old sop my ego a bit.

Sorry momma. People need to think before they speak. I had someone ask me when I was due...four months after my second csection. It really upset me because I've always been skinny!

I know! She wasn't trying to be mean, she just didn't think.

People are weird and she sounds like a very weird one.  I have never seen the reason for lying about ones age.

I have had people think I was older when I was out with my children, many actually say they just thought so because I have so many kids and there's an assumed gap between the children's ages (which there isn't in my case).  I have never tried to guess the age of a person based on their child, but I guess this is not an uncommon practice people try.  Personally I would feel embarrassed if I were wrong... I hope that woman was when she said that to you, maybe the next time she won't assume so much.

Awww, I'm with Debbie, it was probably because of how many kids. It's crazy how many people I know are just starting at 35. I'm 30 and this is my last. (I mean it this time. Haha)
But yeah, my chiro asked if I wanted to use the maternity table - this was several months before I was pregnant. :(

lol I said that at 30 also, but had 2 more after that, lol.

 I'm 36 and i really think I am done this time.  6 is a good #  for me, Although we have not done anything permanent to stop having babies. :)
