What’s made you feel a little old lately?

There's only one answer for me on what is making me feel a little old lately & that's the boy!

Now I'm not exactly old (Sweet 21) , but Oliver is making the time fly by for me. I got pregnant at 19 & had him when I was 20.

He has suddenly just got old himself. I keep mentioning it in posts about how Oli just seems to be growing and doing something different everyday.
Only this month he's started to walk , say things , learn to wave when people say 'ByeBye' .

We even had to purchase the next stage car seat as his long legs just couldn't cope with his baby car seat anymore.

So my son is making me feel a little old , But I've heard they make you feel more old the older they get. Does this mean I'm going to be really old before my time?

Of course I still remember my childhood seeing as It wasn't that long ago that I was still a child. Having Oli and becoming a Mother has made me grow up alot, Others my age are still at University , traveling the world or working full time and hitting the bars & clubs every weekend.

But I wouldn't change it for the world , I would rather be snuggled up on the sofa chilling on a Saturday night then squeezing my feet into uncomfortable shoes and trudging up town.

I wouldn't change feeling old for anything either , but will I be still saying this in twenty years time?

    It is not as much feeling old as the days just zipping past faster. There is so much more to do and something new from Oli everyday. And as you see your kid growing, you kind of think you are getting old.

    It's amazing how seeing your children's growth and milestones makes one feel their age. I can't believe I've got kids as old as I do. :)

    My kids make me feel pretty old because I know jack about technology. They're always like 'oh mum don't you know how to use an iPod' etc and they're only 6 and 9!!

    My kids make me feel old when they say things like "mum, in the olden days when you were young..."! To me the olden days is before electricity to them it is anything past computers. I also feel old when I find myself saying things my parents use to say. Very scary.
