  1. The kids you used to babysit have their own kids and you’re pretty sure it’s only been a few years since they were wearing diapers.
  2. You remember being horrified when your ‘ancient’ parents turned 40, and never thought it would happen to you.
  3. You always knew you would be an adult some day, but it still doesn’t feel like you are . . . even with 5 kids.
  4. You’ve made a two column list of reasons for and against dying the gray scattered in your hair, and still can’t decide.
  5. You actually said, “When I was a young . . . ” out loud!
  6. Teenagers look at you in confusion when you use all your cool, rad, awesome, and stoked words in a sentence.  Or, you suggest a larger size when a teenager tells you someone’s pants are ‘tite’.  They say you must be ‘trippin’.  Since you haven’t fallen, you’re a bit confused.
  7. None of the kids in your life have ever heard of “The Smurfs”, “Gilligan’s Island”, “The Flintstones”, or “Inspector Gadget”.  You think “Pokemon” is something a kid does to someone sitting next to them.
  8. 6-year-olds routinely guess you’re close to 100 years old if you don’t give them hints before they guess.
  9. You’d rather people forget it’s your birthday so you can pretend another one hasn’t come and gone.
  10. After one game of ‘friendly’ basketball with other moms, you’re in pain for a week and can’t make it up your own stairs without groaning.

Yes, I’m having a birthday 🙂 I’m really young at heart, though, because I’m pretty sure I”m getting some Webkinz from my kids . . . and I LIKE Webkinz. 

Anyone else out there wondering when they crossed the line from kid to adult?

    If a birthday happens in a forest, and nobody hear the “Happy Birthday” song, did it really happen?

    I am trying my hardest not to actually come to the conscious realization that I’ve crossed that line. I don’t really want to be an adult. Therefore I shouldn’t have to be, right?

    Happy Birthday, Misty!

    39 is not old!
    You can do great things at the age of 39:

    Happy Birthday Misty!!! You think you’re old, Rob just turned 39. I’ve done many of the things on your list, so I am definately old. Somehow I think I am still 18 though.
