I'm Old

I have evidence that I am old. While some of you will deny the fact it is still true. For one, I had a birthday in March and it moved me up an age bracket. You know, when you fill out a survey and it asks you to fill in your age: 19-14, 25-34, then the next one. Yep I've moved up to the next one. Well, I've come to terms with the age bracket thing but then yesterday happened. Yesterday was Family Fun Day at the kid's school. I remember when I was a kid I could run around all day, climb on stuff, play games all that stuff kids do. In fact - all the things my kids did yesterday. They had a fantastic time on the bouncy castles, climbing walls, trampoline bungee and the tug of war. Oh right, the tug of war. This is the reason I am old. I was in bed last night and I just could not get comfortable. Trying to pinpoint the problem I realize my arms ache. What could I have done that would cause my arms to ache? Oh, tug of war! Do you know that 40 elementary school children can beat 25 moms at tug of war? I can also bet that none of those 40 kids had achy arms when they went to bed. I am old!

Oh - and I have to tell you about this climbing wall. I think I posted last summer a picture of Jordan on a climbing wall at Knotts Berry Farm. She scaled the wall like a pro. I think I need to print the picture out and put it in my wallet. We went over to the climbing wall with money in hand ready for her to climb. The man took one look at her and said she was too little and that she wouldn't be able to reach. There was a boy in her class doing his best to climb the wall and I know he is not much taller than her. I just had this thought that had she been a boy he would have let her try. I complained to a friend and she said "well obviously they don't know Jordan". Luckily I distracted her with the bungee trampoline again where she perfected the double flip. Take that Wall Climbing Man!

----Amazed - I'll work in your request or if you have a great way of blogging it let me know!

If it makes you feel any better I moved into that bracket years ago.

I'm sorry they didn't give Jordan a chance to try, that stinks.

i hate that too, the boy vs. girl thing!

i am still refusing to face the fact that i am in my 30's. the fact that i get "ma'am" from fetus waitresses makes me die a little inside every time!

Sorry that happened to Jordan! The man obviously doesn't know what she is capable of doing.

That happened to me last year, and this year I am starting to feel it too.

Is that all....that age bracket? Phisha...that's nothing. The next one is soooo much better. Wait. Unless the next one is 60's then I'm not there yet and I don't know. But I bet it will be :o)
