Getting Old part two

I left out something kind of funny/kind of rude/kind of "What?" that happened to Jeff and me the other day.

Jeff and I were together with Caedmon when someone who knows we are "older" new parents (OKAY!! We are at the point that is obvious that we are OLDER new parents, but we still feel young....well, every once in a while!) made a statement that really baffled and bemused us. A single, childless woman my age who knows how old Jeff and I are, came up to us and talked for a little while and then said before departing, "Let me just look at ya'll for a minute. I want to see what OLDER new parents look like. I still have hope that I will marry and have a baby someday."

Don't know whether we should be offended or just laugh it off! (OK, we have seven children...we are past being offended about how many children or how old we are when we have/had said children.)

p.s. I am finished Christmas shopping as of early this afternoon!! Hip! Hip! Hooray! Now I just need to finish the wrapping and the cleaning and the cooking and the.....

You are definitely far from old. I had my last child at age 35 which was two years ago and my doctor told me that I was high risk because I was an older mom. Ha!

I don't think your friend meant any harm by it but some people should be more aware of their words. Just laugh it off. :)

Oh, on combining the two maths....we just alternate days for subjects just like college. He has his struggles but we're going at his pace of course. Math is not his fav. He LOVES History but we can't graduated without that silly math. LOL

I just peeked at your curriculum and we ARE using some of the same things. Cool! Now I can really bug you with questions. LOL
