Me, it is my granddaughter when she is running around in the backyard, I sometimes can't keep up with her and I definitely cannot keep up with her energy

Its fun to play with Granchildren, I can't keep up with mind either. But I will try to spend quaity time with them. especially those twins, I don't half to to anything but look at them and talk to them, they just smile, I love to see them laugh or smile. they laugh or smile at everything I say. they are so cute. I know your Grandaughter does some things to make you laugh, or smile, isn't it alwsome!

At first I thought it was trying to keep up with my five grandkids. Now I know that it was when my oldest granddaughter (19 now) got engaged last year in November and told us she's getting married in June this year. I even told her she was making me feel older than what I am. It's hard to believe that she's old enough to get married, but I'm really not old enough to have great-grandkids in a few years (after they finish college...so they say). Didn't I just have my own kids a few years ago? Oh my! They're already in their 40s. Where did the time go?

When I'm not able to do what I used to. I'm not talking major things just minor things like bending to pick something up and have pain run through me. I feel like I should be a 138 instead of 38 at times. When I have a bad day and every joint hurts I feel a lot older then I am.

My kids. I have a 9 year old daughter that is constantly on the go. She is in either basketball, soccer, cheerleading, bowling, or others sports at any given time. Somemtimes they go right into each other. Like this fall, she would go to school, then go right from school to basektball practice, and then we would have less then 15mn. to go from that to the other side of town for soccer, and then when she had a game, it would give us about 15-20min. to go to another part of town to go to the game, and not get home till 9-10pm at night!! Then I have a 4 year old son that is considered autistic, and he is on the go all the time, so while we are doing this stuff, he is here and there, and all over. I also do volunteer work at both schools, threw the church and in the community. I am 27yrs. old, just for a week now:), but going to bed with my son at 12-1am, and then getting up with my daughter at 6:30am, and have a day like this, i get so tired I feel like I could be 50!!!

Playing basketball with my son....he is 13 years old. He is so full of energy! And I have come to realize, I no long have the energy to be jumping and dancing on the court as long as he does. So when I get the ball, I try to hold it a few seconds longer. LOL

Me talking to my cousin. He's about 6 or 7 years younger then me. But to hear him talk and be so mature makes me feel old haha. And that my cousin who about 8 or 9 years younger then me will graduate high school soon. It feels weird.
