We need our own middle-aged forum - to discuss antacids and cheap reading glasses and how we can't stay up much past 10:30 pm anymore!!! (and the joys of sunrises, children who are becoming their own persons, and what books we're reading...)

It is our choices that show what we truly are far more than our abilities. ~A. Dumbledore

I turn 41 on Tuesday. I told my son he better hurry and grow up (he's 19), so I can get started on my second childhood!

Second childhood...that's a good way of putting it!



I have a 26 year old son who's taking his time growing up...I wish you better luck with yours!

There are days when I'm surprised I can make it to 8:00 p.m. without passing out!

I am 56 and not a day over 12 some days. Age is just a silly number after all!!

Most days it seems I'm in bed by 8:00 reading and passing out sometimes soon after that.

I'm 47. I swear I was just 25 and have no idea what happened.



I can't do anything about it so I don't worry about it. My mother had me at 36 and to me always seemed and acted old. She envied youth and would often say she was young once. With her as a role model, I refuse to let my age bother me. And like I said, I can't change it so I'll do the best I can no matter what age.

I'm 52 also.

I'm not exactly proud of it or loving it, more like accepting of it.

Did you wear platform shoes when you were a teenager, too?

If one looks at average longevity and splits average life time into statistical pentiles it would be something like
0-15.4 Childhood
15.4-30.8 Young adulthood
30.8-46.2 Middle aged
46.2-61.6 Mature
61.6-77 Old
>77 Oldest of the Old

I think its kind of funny trying to guess what middle is tho.
One uncle of mine was so optimistic that he started his midlife crisis at 56! He died at 58, rather than 112.
My great grandma didnt seriously expect to live past early 80's and made it to 104.
My father died at 66, as did both his parents, thus at 30 I sweated a bit and started researching heavily to substantially change my lifestyle so I could live longer than them- an episode that I joke was me turning my midlife crisis into a 1/3 life crisis.
So for me with any luck middle aged are the years surrounding 45

51 1/2, me.

Big kid still though.

My favourite thing is playing online computer games and then letting the other players know that they have just been 'pwned' by someone old enough to be their grandad - lol!

I just made 42 a few weeks back and I had to get bifocals so I feel middle aged (even though i still look about 18) Serously, my quite grey hubby of 20 years is often mistaken for my dad! Plus I've had a hysterectomy so I am no longer in the period club. Another thing that makes me feel old.

****I have a blog--check me out!
