Real Age

You know how people underestimate my age, and everything I said about my family in the last post? Check out what I got in my email just now!


"When You Were Just a Baby . . ."

Does your child ever ask what happened the day she was born, how Mom and Dad met, or about other family events from the past?

Take the time to tell her all the details. New research shows that the more a child learns about her family -- and her place in it -- the greater her sense of self-confidence and competence.

RealAge Projection: Kids who have close connections with family and friends generally struggle less with emotional issues. And as adults, these social ties can help them look and feel almost 4 years younger than their calendar age. Imagine that . . . your child, 40 years old but feeling 36.

The whole article can be found here. Tell your children everything.

I still can't figure how the heck you fitted in all that education and are still only 20, Olivia. ;)

(Ok, I read your Linked In Profile! You're even smarter than I had first figured, which was pretty darn smart!)

Minstrel - you know, earlier this year when I was complaining at the spate of people who were commenting on my age when I went shopping, etc., I did briefly doubt my birth certificate!


Ricercar - *sigh*


Selba - be right over. I am so bored today. Job apps, sniffles...
