My mental age
So tell, are you a grown up yet?
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24 (Tammy Gardner)
My mom (aka Ouma) once told me she feels the same inside herself as when she was 16.
And in my 40s, I find myself at a similar mental age: awkward, never dressed right, full of untapped potential.
I asked my husband his mental age, and he unhesitatingly said: '8!'
In truth it varies, I suppose. Sometimes I feel the burdens of responsibility so hard I feel as old as the hills.
Other times I laugh and laugh and feel exactly the age of my youngest son: 10.
