Finding out that children I babysat were graduating high school was a big one for me. I just can't imagine those kids all grown up. Since I moved away from the place where I lived when I was younger, I didn't see that process happening, and only realized they had grown up when I heard that news. Another thing that makes me feel old these days is working with many people younger than me, and having to explain so many things to them that I am interested in or enjoy. I'll never forget when a girl I worked with was talking about a "new song" she liked and it turned out to be a remake of one by my favorite artist that came out before she was even born!

I felt really old when a small girl asked me if i was my nieces grandmother. I am old enough to be her young grandmother, but that girl really made me feel so much older.

i think, i will never feel old. you should accept the fact that as age will grow, younger girls are going to call you "uncle". when you accept this fact, you will never feel old.
