Oh Children (:

7 year-old: I have a question I need to ask you. *Sounding ever so serious mind you...*
Me: Yes?
7 year-old: How old are you?
Me: Oh, I'm 19.
7 year-old: Wow!


Thanks to that little girl I now feel older beyond my years :) Children are the greatest!

That's funny! the same thing has happened to me. But, it was by an older child and also sometimes by adults. Everyone seems to think that I am only around 16 years old. It's funny to see their faces when I tell them that I just turned twenty! LOL!

Aren't little kids so cute, though!

God Bless,
Jessica

We don't think we're that old, but to kids we've got some serious years. I remember when I was 6 my oldest cousin turned 20 and I was amazed.

Kids are very special... they even think that their sissy (me) being 14 are really old! lol :)

I had someone thinking that I just turned 17.... I was REALLY surprised~! :)

BTW, did you see the pictures on my blog of Jyll (my new baby sister). If not go look... I am REALLY SORRY that I haven't written you a letter!!!!!!!!!! I have been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO busy!!!!!!!! You know with a baby in the house it is hard to find time to do anything!

Thanks for being patient!

Yep, little kids do things like that. My youngest sister started drawing me with wrinkles when I turned sixteen. LOL.

HA! that's funny and so cute. i guess i thought 19 was really old too when i was a kid :-) i remember thinking that all of the late teens 17-19 just seemed so cool and mature.

wait until you have to tell a kid you're 27 like me...THEN you'll really feel old :-o

That is funny. I am almost 15 , but most people think I am 11.

I am also going to graduate in 2011 instead of the original plan of 2013 by having no breaks in school. It is exciting to finish early, but I definitely won't fit in looking 13, but fitting in isn't my goal.

What college do you go to and what are you going for? Were you homeschooled?

Sorry about that, I was just rambling. All my friends are about 3 years younger than I am, so I don't really get a chance to talk about high school and beyond much.

I turned 18 when I was helping out with VBS. And of course people felt that they had to sing me happy birthday. A kid came up to me afterwards and was like, "Now you can buy the stuff TV!!!" lol
