I swear that other people's kids have grown soooooo much when I wasn't looking.  Then I realize that time has zipped by.  As I get older, time seems to go by faster and faster.

When I watch tv, I keep thinking that the dialogue is much quieter than the music, so I up the volume.  My kids complain that the tv is too loud.  My family thanks whoever came up with closed captioning.

I can't seem to stop making old person noises when I bend over and sit down! Also, I've noticed that most of the kids I used to babysit are married and having babies of their own. Talk about a time warp...

My girls and I were watching "You've Got Mail" and my oldest said, "What's that noise?". I asked her what noise and she said, "Listen"...it was the dial-up noise. She had no clue.

You know when you are getting old when younger children say how old are you, you then tell them and they say, " wow that's old, very old." I am not very old but when I hear kids saying that it just makes me speechless and then filled with laughter. Smile I have heard this many times to others.

I'm only 28, but I knew I was getting old when I bought tickets to a concert a few years ago. I had the option to buy general admission tickets and stand on the floor by the stage, or buy seats. I bought seats so I could actually "sit and enjoy the music."

I had my "aha, I'm getting old" moment not long ago when I made a mad dash to the store before closing.  I used to make that mad dash for ice cream or chips, now I made the run for denture adhesive and antacids!

I felt pretty old when everyone who called yesterday to wish me a happy birthday said you must feel old because you'll be 30 next year! Hello that's next year.  Plus when I looked in the mirror last week I started to notice these wrinkles starting to creep up onto the middle of my forhead.  But I try not to let it bother me.  A year is another year and you cant stop aging.  Plus God said we're like a wind here today and gone tommorrow.  Thanks for always brightening my day.

I am a 37 year old who has just returned to college, well I was at the local college book store searching for a text book for a class.  The professor was clear about needing volume 2 of the text but the young lady who helped me stated that volume 3 is the same book but was just released.  I asked her what is the store exchange policy and her reply was "just have YOUR SON keep the receipt and bring the book back to exchange for the correct one".  I knew at that time returning to college was going to be interesting.

Well, I may only be 14 but I've been listening and I just had to share 2 qoutes I found. Mark Twain says "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you dont mind it wont matter" and Chili Davis says "Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional"

A few weeks ago, I went into a convenience store/gas station grand opening, they were handing out free nuts and twinkies. I don't eat twinkies, so I told my daughter I had a treat for my 5 year old grandson. When she asked what I could not think of what they were. I described them as those sponge cakes with the cream filling that will out last all of us, and she patiently said... "mom, that is a twinkie. (very slowly as I was a little kid).

My son turned 18 in December.  He graduates High School in May.  I was thinking back to when I graduated high school at 17, and thinking of my grand parents.  I remember thinking back to when I was younger, around 5, and my grandmother was so old...she was always old to me.

Well, something made me stop and think about how old she was when I was graduating high school...and, she wasn't much older than I am now!  So...either she was young and my perceptions were wayyyyy off...or, I'm getting very old.  Reality is, probably somewhere in the middle!

I know we are getting old when we headed to the Rock and Worship Roadshow tonight in Indianapolis and left about 50 minutes into the show because we thought it was too loud!  We were looking forward to seeing Mercyme and didn't quite make it this time!  There will be many other opportunities to see them and the other bands in more contemporary settings!  Keep up the great work on the tour, and may god bless all you and your families as you travel from city to city!

I'm a Sunday School teacher for 4-6 year olds and one of my little ones proposes to me on a fairly regular basis. One week class he announces "I'm going to marry you when I grow up!" and one of my other students says "You can't marry her! She'll be dead by the time..." and then stopped and looked at me. I'm 25 by the way.

I am a tutor. I tutor mostly junior high and high school students in math.  I feel old when they pull out their fancy calculators and ask me how to input the problem, but I don't know how.  When I learned the math, we did the work by hand using a pencil and paper.

I didn't think I was getting that old (I'm only 24) but I work at a middle school and the kids were talking about cars, and one says, "Yeah, have you seen that '85 convertible so and so has?, What a classic car!" I said, "WHAT?! You can't call an 85 car a classic yet, I DON'T WANT TO BE A CLASSIC YET." Smile haha.. oh well..

My kid came home and said they were studying the decade in which I was his age. The description started with "...way back in the nineteen hundreds!"
And the conversation continued with "wow no microwaves? How did you cook?"
Another sign is hair where you don't want it more prevalent than where you do.
Trips to the Dr for other than birth control...
when you start knowing your parents medical history...You want to take naps...people ask you questions beginning with Maam...
Your kids friends talk about how old and dumb their parents are...and you remember feeling that way once too...
and I'll end with You call your parents for advice! Love ya Mom n Dad- and love you K-Love.

I listen to K-Love while commuting to my job as a counselor. I just like to listen and never bother commenting; but I couldn't resist this one. I don't feel old even though I have children older than most of the people who have commented about feeling old and 13 grandchildren (One graduating from college this year). Still don't feel old til I look in the mirror; but I really feel old when I comment to a client when they tell me where they're from and I reply, "I used to live there." Then I realize that I lived there before they were born." That's old! P.S. All the TV stars that I grew up with are dying and that is scary and sad. Also when I have to explain records, 8 tracks, tape recorders, etc. Oh well, since I am going to live for eternity how old can I really be?

You know your getting old when you 8 year old ask you if "Kiss" is a real band.  When you also inform you son that his grandfather use to listen to "kiss" when he was my age.  At that time I was in my 30's.  My son then asked me if they were still alive, and I answered yes.  He then said, Wow, they must be really old.  Wow did I just feel old.

Well, I was in the grocery store a few years ago with my sister and sister-in-law(I was 34 my sister was 24 and my sister-in-law was 31) and as we were checking out the cashier looked straight at me and said,"Oh that's nice are you all having a mother daughters day out?" I didn't know what to say. I walked out of that store thinking about all of the things I should have said, but I just bit my tongue...AHHHH :/
