    I realized that I was not cool, when dropping off my son in middle school and he pretended that he didn't know me.

    Have you ever heard the first rule of cool?
    As soon as something is classed as 'cool' it becomes uncool again!
    Some people might consider you to be 'cool' by having what look to be two great children and a fantastic focus to your life.

    Isn't 35 the new 25 too?

    In my family all of us'ns tried to think and feel 'cool' and at the same time we had our parents/relatives that once we got to the point where we thought we were 'cool' always brought us back down to earth.

    In my late teens however, I did try and be 'hip' with the way I dressed and acted, however being that it didn't get me any place fast or even slow - I realized that I'll just let those who think their 'cool' still think that their cool and I'll just be me.

    Sweetie you are YOUNG! Or you're only as young as you feel I guess..... Go out and buy yourself a sexy summer dress, go to the salon, put some make up on and GET OUT THE HOUSE FOR A NITE WITH THE GIRLS!!!

    I was never cool to begin with...! I can definitely relate to having 2 kids though & not enough time to do anything.

    I was never cool.  ever.   Being cool was never important to me.

    I am 36 and feeling cool has nothing to do with how old you are but how you live. A felt not cool at the time in my life when I realised I had stopped chasing my dreams and was living a life that was meaningless, day in, day out. So it is all about the inside of us that makes us cool or not.Not society's stereotypes or other people's opinions.

    Wow. Everyone needs a bit of an esteem boost!

    You're all cool because you're giving your own advice to others, getting feedback from people, sharing experiences (good and bad), relating to others, and are able to articulate things that people are actually interested in!  I -for one- find that COOL!!!


    Besides, our children aren't going to think we're cool now - until they're much older. lol

    And, CheapDaisy, that's an adorable picture of your kids!
