Starting to feel old? Here are some thoughts on feeling old when you’re actually not that old – it can be tough to balance in your mind!
This funny thing happens when you have a kid – you start feeling old regardless of how old you actually are. In my case, it’s exaggerated, since I had my first child at 23. Did you know the national average age for a woman to have her first child is 26? Yeah. I’m a bit of an overachiever. Sometimes it makes me feel isolated – being one of the only people I know my age with a child. My friends from high school and college are still going out and partying, dating around. They’re starting exciting new careers and living in hip cities. I’m (very happily!!!) a married stay-at-home mom living in the suburbs with a mortgage. It can be hard to find things to talk about.
