5 signs you're OLD

  1. Your mom gives you some clothes that aren't fitting her anymore and in exchange you give her your blood pressure cuff.  (This makes you old on two accounts - 1: You're happy with clothes from your mom, when in your teen years you would have scoffed at the idea of wearing anything your unhip, totally uncool mother would have bought, and 2: You purchased a blood pressure cuff?  Seriously, you're old.)
  2. You finally have some alone time and you decide rather than drinking a glass of wine you'd like to work on a cross stitch project.  Or knitting.  Or scrap booking.  You see where I'm going with this - you'd rather do an old person craft than drink?  Who are you?  You're 21 year old self would be ashamed.
  3. You get worried about drivers you see on the road, thinking "Are they really old enough to drive?"  I mean, I saw a kid the other day, and I swear he was 12.
  4. You'd rather buy clothes for the baby than for yourself.  This happens for a number of reasons, including the previously mentioned Battle of the Bulge and the fact that baby clothes are so freaking cute.
  5. You get into bed just minutes after putting the baby down.  And your baby goes to bed at 7.  Yea, it's official, you're old.

  1. Ahh, yes, going to bed as soon as your children goes to bed...That's where I'm heading in just a few minutes. Gotta get that un-interuppted Facebook time! LOL
    But I still go for the wine during quite 10 am.... But I *could* just be an alcoholic. That is yet to be determined. :)
