I´m a mom to two teens, a 17 year old boy and a 14 year old girl. I chat a LOT with them. :)
That stopped me in my tracks. For some days I felt extremely old. Yeah, I know. It was all in my head but it felt so real at the time.
Then I remembered a song by Ricardo Arjona that calls forty-somethings "the perfect mix of experience and youth".
That is what I wish to claim. My experience and my youth. ;)
