My dad was 37 when I was born and 40 when my brother was. My mom was 9 years his junior though.
Yeahhhh. That doesn't count.
She is 79 coming up on 80, and is still kicking ass Definitely in little old lady land. If you picture Violet Crawley (aka Professor McGonagall) from Downton Abbey, who takes no shit but gives it, that'd be about right
She's enjoying her gardening, still gives me shit for whatever I'm doing wrong (like job hopping ) and spouting racist bullshit that she used to give my dad (who passed back in 2000) shit for saying, I blame certain TV stations and Facebook for this bullshit though. Alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll of us minus her on firmly on the......correct......side of things, so she gets annoyed with folks She knows I'm more in the middle and gets annoyed when I correct her on the bullshit she gets from those not-so-reality-based news sources
She loves watching her grandpuppies though, and spoils them rotten (which is why one is a bit too tubby for our vets liking ).
Also, at you ever being an insensitive asshole. Sorry, just can't picture it.
Oh, thank God. Felt so shitty to ask.
I live my life ever vigilant of the fact that I have a lot of years on the kiddo, and I want to see as much of her life happen as I can. I've seen some anecdotes tangentially about 7-8 or so years ago that women who get pregnant and carry for the first time later in life often show signs of *younger* reproductive system which extends out to other factors. I'm hoping to find some truth in that, but your post helps.
