48 Going On 20.

I look young, I act young. Just who I am.
My daughter says I act like I am about 20.
I am 48 and people usually guess my age from 30-40.
I was at my daughters school the other day. (She is 15) and she told me one her friends said I looked young.
I am certainly not going to complain.

hehe. I bet

And seriously, I look NOTHING like my daughter...LOL!! I would say very young 20's...so I don't know why people throw 12 around. If I looked the way I do now when I was 12...I would def have been the talk of the town.

I can understand you frustration. Looking 12 is a bit young.

I am 35 and a mother of 3. I have heard I am short and look 12 my whole life. It would be nice to actually be treated as an adult at some point. Many people are so rude and disrespectful. I think some strangers get very confused now though, because my oldest is 11, and many think I still look like a teenager. Can't be the teenage mom, the numbers don't add up..so I guess people figure I am the big sister. People that love me always say I will appreciate it some day, but that day is not coming soon enough. I know I would never be so bold as to say some of the things I have heard in my life to another human being. Being 48 and looking in your 30's is great! :) But being 35 and hearing you look 12 is awful.
