Occasionally when I'm out with Sarah and Daniel together, people will think that Sarah is his mom and I'm the grandma. I know it's technically possible since she IS 16 years older than him (and I'm 16 years older than her, if anyone is counting ). I don't know why, but it really bugs me.

I am sure that will happen when and if I have another child. My son already looks a lot older than he is and I can only imagine what people are going to say when we all go out together.

My kids are 11, 7, and 7 months and people ask me all the time if I planned it or if I am out with one of my sisters people ask my sister about her baby..it drives me insane!

People never know my daughter is my daughter when they see us together, they usually think we're sisters, or worse, lovers (because she always holds my hand). When I was a child my mother was frequently mistaken for m grandmother too because she had me when she was 41. It can get very annoying and frustrating, because some people don't believe you or think you're joking about who's related to who. You're def not alone in this.
