1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

I have 18yo friends ... and 60+ yo friends ...

 

I'm so sorry to hear that your range of friends is so limited.

"Ummm..yeah, I WOULD be somewhere in between if my LOWEST was 123 and I didn't say I was that low now." -------- Right, somewhere between those two numbers, towards the higher end (your talk of wanting to lose before your vacation etc).

Nah, haven't been that high since I was 9 months pregnant almost 10 years ago.

"So you have actually SEEN 40 year old mothers WEARING the examples YOU gave?" ------------- I am old, so I have lived a long time and in many places. Yes, I have seen people wearing all kinds of inappropriate and unflattering things.

Oh I believe you but the examples you used?

No, not that limited at all. I can know, and I do, people at those ages but that doesn't mean I "hang out" with them as much as my other close knit friends. There are things I can't do with an 18 year old and things a 70 year old would not want to do.

You know, that's funny. B/c the only time I hit the 130s was when I was nine months pregnant w/DS. I think I hit 126 w/my last pg...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Should I take a picture of the scale next time? Undecided

Which picture are you referring to as my weight has not been that high in 10 years, so I am curious. Laughing

Again, you are very small in bone structure and height, correct? It is all relative.

Oh geesh.   I have *friends* that are 18. I have *friends* that are 60+.   I have friends everywhere in between. Some I hang out with a lot, some I hang out with a little. Some I don't "hang out" with at all.   I don't have to do everything the same with all my friends.  That doesn't mean the 60+ yo isn't a *friends* just because I don't go do an obstacle run with her.

What do you do with a "friend" who is 18 years old when you are over 40? Just asking.
