My "baby girl" is about to turn 5, and today I'm filling out Kindergarten registration forms for 2008-2009 school year. Just doesn't seem possible. At all.
As I meet more and more people on Etsy, I feel older and older too. So many of them are young - some even still in high school! I was a pretty with-it kid in high school, active and smart and all...but no way would I have the patience and commitment to have an Etsy shop back then! Or the college kids - they amaze me too. I know what college is like, "busy" doesn't cover the half of it.
And while I'm being amazed by these young people, I'm wondering...when did I leave that category? I'm in my early 30s, for pete's sake - not my 60s! And yet, undeniabley, THEY are young, and I am not.
I'm not ready for this. I'm not ready to be old, or even "middle aged"!
