I've read those crazy articles about children becoming Mom's at very young ages, 10 year olds even. I'm 23 years old, 24 in October and I am a teacher. I have been working with little kids lately but I still sub for high school classes sometimes and I tutor high school students. So, I was helping one 10th grader with his research paper and the day came when he was presenting his paper to his class and to the parents of his classmates. One of my colleagues asked me to find out whether the student she helped would also be presenting that day. So, I went to the group of 16 year old students who I know from teaching them German to ask whether Monika* was presenting today. They replied, "No, she presented yesterday." One girl, who I didn't know, who was sitting with them quickly asked, "Aww, why? Are you her Mom?"
UH, SERIOUSLY GIRL?! 16 Year Old Girl?! You think I could be a 16 year old's Mom?! Not possible, love. The boys were laughing so much, they're like, "That's our German teacher!"
It was a weird situation, I was totally surprised by her question, but I also thought it was really funny. I've been confused for a 15 year old many a times, but as a Mom of a 16 year old, never! Well, I guess I have been now :)
Not Lorelai Gilmore and not yet old enough to be! By the way, this was yesterday at the airport when I was picking up my sister and her hubby! And no worries, their last name isn't really Stankaroni ;) hahaha
*Name has been changed
Has anything like this ever happened to you?!
I need to get back to the States and get carded all the time again so I can feel young.
The kids at school are starting to make me feel old!
