"You don't look old enough to have 3 kids.." * Edit for those that think the kids look like me..*another edit -Thank You

Posted by   + Show Post

That is what I was told by two cashier yesterday.

I was buying shoes with my 3 kids (15 years, 11 years and 11 months). My 15 year old was holding my 11 month old and the cashier asked who the baby belonged to. They thought my youngest belong to my oldest.

I told him all three of my kids were mine. They seemed shocked. Now obviously I am old enough to have 3 kids cause I have 3 kids. And I can accept the fact that they thought I looked young, but I thought that was just an odd statement...

Anyway this is me (I am 36):

and here are my kids..

I think I look old enough to be their mommy...what do you think?

I do appreciate looking younger and I always say thank you. I don't mind being told I look younger. I just never heard I looked to young to have 3 kids....It is usually that I look to young to have a 15 year old

*EDIT...for those that think the kids look like me...this is m DH ( I think the look more like him)

 

Thank you all for the compliments :-)

I don't mind looking younger (even though I don't think I really look that young. I would say mayber early 30s, but I really do think I look 36.)

I wasn't upset or anything by what the cashiers. I took it as a compliment I just thought it was weird to say I didn't look old enough to have 3 kids...I know people younger then me with more kids :-)

And yeah my DH is pretty hot too (for those of you that thought he was) ;-)

Quoting Necie72:

Yes, you definitely look too young to have a teenager...  Is she also taller than you?  You have the same facial structure as her, so no denying that she's yours...  LOL  Your son looks like he favors his dad, but I can't really tell by the angle.  The baby I think is too young to tell who she favors, but she's gorgeous.  :-)  People probably think your older daughter is your sister...  People don't believe I'm 40...  My gray hair is starting to show, but people tell me that's not even a "sign" because people gray early....  I once had an older woman ask me if my DD was my GRANDDAUGHTER!!!!  I almost felt insulted...  LOL  But, then I realized at 40, I have friends who actually are grandparents!  They were teen moms who have teens who are already parents...

 Thanks...she is taller then me..I am 5'4 she is almost 5'7. My DH started going gray at 18 he has more gray now then you can see in the picture. here is a better picture of the kids

I've had comments like those.  I was even carded at a party the other night and my girlfriend go so upset.  I'm 47 btw.  I told the bartender I was old enough to be his mother.  LOL

But, I have a 24, 23, 22 and 3 year old and me and my hubby have been asked if the youngest is our granddaughter.  Totally annoying.  total sigh.  

Your 15 and 11 year olds look SO grown up.  Totaly jealous of the curls on the 11 month old.  Hubby IS rather hot, too!!!

You are beautiful as is the rest of your family.  Just accept that people say dumb things out of the best intentions.  :-)

Cute pic!  Yeah, your oldest looks like you, your son looks like a combo of both of you and the jury is still out on the youngest...  LOL  I think she'll look like you or a combo of both of you...
