so in the spirit of it all, here are...
Thirteen Things about knowing you're old.
1.When you groan while bending over, and your butt "talks back".
2.While giving you a "mommy make over", your 5 year old gives you a comb-over to cover those gray streaks at the temples- you know... the ones that you thought were so darn sexy- because you have "lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of gray hair, mommy".
3.You fall asleep before your kids do.
4.You don't watch TV for entertainment anymore, you watch the History and Discovery channels because it's "interesting".
5.When you say "I laughed so hard, I peed a little" and actually mean it.
6.All the stupid things your parents said to you as a kid start to make sense. (If all of your friends jumped off of a cliff, would you do that too?)
7.Your prescriptions cost more than your groceries.
8.When you start saying " What's wrong with the kids these days?"...
9.And you can't stand to listen to the local Pop station.
10.Instead of reminiscing about your love life when you were a teen, you start to realize that one day... IN 7 YEARS *gasp* your kids will be teens too.
11.You can actually laugh at your own fashion faux pas while looking at photos.
12.You manage to roll over on your own (males and females respectively) *"hangy-downies" while turning over in bed.
And most recently...
13.Your 5 year old tells you that you're "not AS ugly with make up on".
*As said by Mark in a Once Upon a Blog comment, who heard it from marmite breath...:O)
