Everybody's Getting Older!

Happy birthday to my nephew, who is thirteen today!

Thirteen.

Thirteen.

I just keep looking at that word and boggling. Surely, surely I am not old enough for the next generation down to be hitting its teens! Except that every time I think that, I find myself remembering that when my mother was my age, I was already well into my college years. And this thought is really not helping.

  1. If it makes you feel any better, I'm not old enough to have a cousin who's a grandmother already.

    1. Oh, holy crap. No, I think that makes me feel worse. Since we're about the same age, and all. :)

    3. I think I'm beginning to realize that, mentally, none of us ever feels as old as we look. I never appreciated that fact when I was young!

      And thank you for reminding me that I need to mail your birthday card. :)
