    At One Point I Worked At A Liquor Store

    and when I ID people they would always ask for my ID. I've been told I look between 12 and 16. I know it's going to be great in the future, but it's frustrating right now. Especially at work. "Haha, never heard that one before. You're real funny there Mister." I went to a...

    "These Can't Be All Yours?"

    That is the Number one line I get while out with my kids. I will be 32 this year, usually people think Im 18... sometimes younger, when they first see me. Is it because I smile a lot? It's it ODD that a mother of five smiles a lot? What if I do enjoy my kids? Someday my age...

    I Look Like I Am 16.

    Almost 20

    I am almost 20 and people always guess I am 25 or so  when I don't shave or 17 or so when I am shaved. No one ever guesses my age only undershoots it or overshoots it.

    I'm nearly thirty, but I am often mistaken for being in my early twenties.  I really do appreciate the comments, and count them as compliments rather than be insulted by it.  When I was in my early twenties, I was always carded and often mistaken for being sixteen or so.  I...
