No, mainly because I look my age. I'll be 35 this September. Now my being young has distracted people from the real me. I have 4 children the oldest is going to be 19 this December so if you consider that made me a mom at 16. For a very long time people couldn't see past my age to what a great parent I really was. It took my kids growing up and being the ones getting great grades, working steady jobs, starting college, my oldest recently purchased a condo of his own with no help from me at all!
I now have the respect of all sorts of people, teachers, parents, employers and the friends of my kids for being a great parent.
Looking young is fantastic, but being 35 and having the respect of so many others struggling with young families is amazing!
