"You don't look old enough to have 3 kids.." * Edit for those that think the kids look like me..*another edit -Thank You
December 31, 2012 at 10:59 PM

That is what I was told by two cashier yesterday.

I was buying shoes with my 3 kids (15 years, 11 years and 11 months). My 15 year old was holding my 11 month old and the cashier asked who the baby belonged to. They thought my youngest belong to my oldest.

I told him all three of my kids were mine. They seemed shocked. Now obviously I am old enough to have 3 kids cause I have 3 kids. And I can accept the fact that they thought I looked young, but I thought that was just an odd statement...

Anyway this is me (I am 36):

and here are my kids..

I think I look old enough to be their mommy...what do you think?

I do appreciate looking younger and I always say thank you. I don't mind being told I look younger. I just never heard I looked to young to have 3 kids....It is usually that I look to young to have a 15 year old

*EDIT...for those that think the kids look like me...this is m DH ( I think the look more like him)

 

Thank you all for the compliments :-)

I don't mind looking younger (even though I don't think I really look that young. I would say mayber early 30s, but I really do think I look 36.)

I wasn't upset or anything by what the cashiers. I took it as a compliment I just thought it was weird to say I didn't look old enough to have 3 kids...I know people younger then me with more kids :-)

And yeah my DH is pretty hot too (for those of you that thought he was) ;-)

    I get the same thing all the time. I'm 33 and my kids are 12, almost 11 & 4. I know it's because I look young, but sometimes I feel as if it is a curse. but I am sure that in a few years I will appreciate it.

    I get told that alot too, and I have 5 kids.  Then comes the "Oh, well a couple of them are twins, right?"  Nope!  Just had our girls really close together.  They are 13, 12, 11 and 10.  Our son is 4.
