So I realize I'm no spring chicken anymore. I used to always look young for my age, but after awhile, time takes his toll, plus I work nightshift, have 4 children (5 if you count Husband, which I do) and have a 3 month old, so, yeah, I look a bit older than I used to. Last night I was in charge and had a labor patient (go figure). My patient, 9 years younger than me, was in for preterm labor a few weeks ago and she was my first patient after my maternity leave was up and we bonded. So I was glad to be able to see her through her labor and delivery. Anyway, she was asking about my kids, where I live, etc. It just so happens that the H.S. girls volleyball team in the town I live in won State Championship this year and this came up when I told her where I live. She then asks me "Are any of your kids in high school?" *Sigh* I'll be going out to buy some awesome face cream later. Guess that happens to the best of us!
