The adorable blonde ponytailed little girl that you used to babysit every weekend heads off to her freshman year of college, and thrives. So proud! 

Your own kid will be in highschool next year (and this thought makes you feel all panick-y and vomit-y inside).

You watch The Matrix and realize that it is more than a decade old.

Beavis and Butthead return, and you still remember the original.

@StaceyMay81: I had a pogo ball AND popples!

@lauramich: Oh God, I’ve been feeling this one lately!

@lovekiss: B&B rule.

When you still think the 90s were ten years ago.

You look over at the CHILD driving the car next to you and just KNOW they can’t be old enough to have a drivers license.

And I am/do everything on the first list ha ha!

@Juliepants: I’m guilty of that and I really don’t think I’m that old… I guess I’m getting there, haha.

When you’d rather listen to NPR or talk radio because the pop radio station is too fussy.

 

Oh jeez.

The first time you say “That is music!?”

Everyone seems to know a hot young star except you *cough ryan goslin*  still don’t know who he is.

When you have to ask your children who they are thinking about voting for.

You see a former highschool classmate at the mall pushing a baby stroller and you say “Is this your new little one?” and they say “Oh God no! This is my grand daughter.”

Yeah…I’m that old.***sigh***

A few weeks ago my Fiance and I watched Woody Allen’s movie “Manhatten” which I hadn’t seen in about 15 years. This time around I was really outraged about the affair portrayed between Woody Allen and Mariel Hemmingway. I kept thinking “That man is just a predator! For Gods sake, where is that girls mother?” Last time I saw the movie, I don’t think I even gave it a thought.  Now I see it from a true adult perspective, it’s a whole other movie.

Ugh. When you hear songs from your teen years on the Classic Rock station! (Fwiw, it was Pearl Jam’s Evenflow.) I was like, “Wuuuuuut? Seriously?! On the classic rock station?! C’mon! Dammit. *sighs* I’m officially old.”
