It's actually strange for me. I didn't have kids until my 40s and now I'm 53 and my youngest is 4 (oldest is 10), so I'm still doing the little kid thing while most of my friends are already into retirement and grandchildren. I am always assumed to be my kids' grandmother lol. 50 is weird...you know you're getting old and yet, your mind is still as young as ever. The body, however, reminds you you're old. :)

I can actually understand that from a child's perspective. My parents were in their late forties. It was embarrassing on occasion :(

I wish I could talk with them.

My parents were older parents also. It never embarrassed me. I guessed they raised you to be shallow then. That's disappointing.

Oh no, I don't mean that in a bad way. I adored my parents. They were my everything.

I'm 57. I love being in my 50's. I still feel young at heart, so do all my friends. It's wonderful to be post-menopausal. My kids are out on their own, so I'm done with all the teenage angst (they were born when I was 30 and 32). I'm still plenty young enough to do pretty much whatever I want.
