What Is Your Age?
It is evident that there are several generations posting in this forum. We are all parents of inmates, but due to our differing ages we find ourselves at various points in our lives. For example, some are young with small children to raise.Some are middle-aged and still employed. Some are retired with older children in prison. Each presents its own unique set of circumstances.

Therefore, it might be interesting to observe how many fit into each age category and help us to find others close to our own ages.

MotherJ 02-28-2009 05:52 PM

Alright, so it appears that I am the one who is older than dirt. :o I will turn 64 the 16th of March. Just celebrated my 45th wedding anniversary with dear Hubby the 15th of Feb. I guess what is more important than age is if you still enjoy life and can contribute to this earth and your fellow man in some way. While the body is heading south I find that I am happier with myself than I've ever been. I have 7 children with the oldest 40 and youngest who turned 17 today. There are 11 grandkids so far with oldest 8 and youngest 1. What fun that is!

Happy Birthday Wendy!!

End of Confession!

Well I guess I win the prize Huh? I am 72yrs 6mo and counting-- I am thankful for every day as motherj said --I am heading south!! I have seen so much in my life time that it never cease to amaze me with people. Being a mother of 4 daughter 53, 50, 48, 46 and 8 grandchildren 30-20, 6 ggreat and I love them all they keep me young. I am the widow of a ret Army man and enjoy my family and all Gods people. So as a mother and wife it makes me the jack of all trades and master of none!
"Age has it compensation" my mother law told me in 1968!! How true she was.

meg'smom 03-02-2009 01:59 PM

I feel a lot older than i am.... I feel about 80 some days but i am 39 about to be 40 in June. I wish i could figure out my grandma's secert... she is 27 and still holding!!! I think it might be the cane she will hit you with if you argue with her!!! :D

everymom 03-02-2009 03:07 PM

I'm 52, my oldest is 30. He FINALLY married his sweetheart of 13 yrs. this past summer.... I hope they don't drag their feet that long for my first grandchild....
My youngest is 22 and has, God willing, only 2 more years of his visit with MDOC.
I work in a produce dept., and feel right at home with all the other fruits =]

addictsmom 03-03-2009 01:03 PM

I will be 49 in July, today I feel like I am face and body are really showing it. What a downer I sound like...I have really notice the older I get the less I care what anyone thinks of me. Life some days never end and others end way to soon, of course the ones that end to soon are the fun ones. Such is life, I will feel better tomorrow

do97jdl 03-04-2009 10:33 PM

Well, don't know how I missed this one! I am 56 and my eldest son is 26 and is the one incarcerated.
I also have a son who will be 25 next Monday and a daughter who turned 23 in Dec. Three close in age but very different in many ways.
I was a nurses aide, went back to school for an RN, then for a Masters degree, so I could teach. That eventually propelled me back to medical school at age 40. And after all that school and residency stress I still managed to hide my age well....until this that is!

boop's mom 03-05-2009 08:38 AM

WOW congrats on all your accomplishements Dr.

CSR'sMom 03-07-2009 06:40 AM

I'll hit the big 50 in June and have a 25 yr old son in prison.
