There's something about the word "daughters" that makes me feel old. Maybe it makes me feel like my mom ... and well, she's older than me.
It reminds me of parent conferences; when I was a teacher talking to my students' parents ... about their daughters (and sons). And the vast majority of them were older than me, especially early in my career.
I am a daughter. Have been for 35 years. I remember as a young girl thinking that my mom - heck, anyone's mom - was old ... perspective is a crazy thing, huh?
I often refer to my daughters as my babies or my girls. When someone points out that I have two daughters, I just feel old.
I guess the word daughter makes me realize that someday my two baby girls are going to be grown women ... perhaps moms themselves with daughters of their own.
And then I will be really old!
Regardless of my age - or how old I feel, I have two beautiful daughters ...
... and that is a wonderful thing!
