Hi, I just wanted to tell you ladies about what happened to me today. I am 34 but inless I look in the mirror I still think I am like 20. So I am at the Buckle in the mall today. It is a trendy clothing store that targets 16 to 30 year olds. I am looking at Affliction shirts for my hubby. And there is a young guy about 18 - 22 a few feet away. The sales girl comes up to us. She asks, "Are you guys looking for Affliction shirts?" as if we are together. I got the impression she thought we were a couple. And we both answered seperatly. So he walks off and she is helping me and then to my HORROR asks, "Is that your son?" absolute Horror. This smilie is exactlly what I did. It made me ill. My face flushed. I could barely respond. I couldn't even think to shop. I left. I *Still* can't believe I look like someones mom. While I am physically old enough to have had him when I was 16 or so. I amjust having trouble dealing with this age i am. I don't have kids and I am not saying it is bad to be a "Mom". But it is bad when you think someone is implying you are dating the hot guy next to you but then you realize they are implying you are his Mom. In that sense I don't want to look like a "Mom". I know I am not a kid any more. But, I don't feel like a grown up either. Besides the sheer horror of what happened today - In general I feel stuck between 2 worlds. I don't want to look like Fergie. A 30 year old dressing like a 14 yr old. But, I don't want to be the "Mom" out shopping with her hottie son. I was wearing capri's and a baby doll shirt, leather sandals and a cute long necklace and Guess handbag.
