NO, not me - but our first child. Just can't believe it, how can it be? HOW?

My eldest is 52 in June, and talking about retirement😮😮😮.

Yesterday I was taking her to school and brownies.

Suddenly seems to happen! Time flies! Lots of stories and memories though. Grateful we’ve made it, and long may good times continue!

How time flies! My baby will turn 30 this year, it's impossible!

Our little boy would have been 50 this year.
I often find myself wondering, and imagining what he would have been like

My eldest is 55 nearly 56 that’s what I thought was really old
It’s a very very strange feeling

Our eldest is 52 this year but I prefer to dwell on our youngest who is a mere 36.

I did have an inkling last year when DC1 was 49.
And to think I was an elderly primigravida too 😲

Someone a bit younger than me said to me yesterday "I expect all your DC are in their fifties too"

Well, no, they're not!

M0nica Wed 25-Jan-23 21:49:14

I know, I had mine late as well, Callistemon

Jimjam1 Wed 25-Jan-23 21:55:13

Kitty same as you. Oldest 52. Younger one 36. Dealing with 2 generations. Love my boys so much.

Sara1954 Wed 25-Jan-23 21:59:20

Mine are well spaced out, one will be forty nine this year, one thirty one and one in the middle.
The oldest doesn’t seem anything like forty nine, she looks youthful, goes clubbing with her friends and older children, and is constantly gadding around the country going to gigs and festivals., seems that fifty is the new twenty.
