This seems kind of silly, but I am sooo sad tonight. I am 51 and have a 7 yo ds. I am healthy, not overweight, dress well, and IMHO, look young for my age. But lately, I am getting more people asking if ds is my grandson. I realize, in my head, that many women my age are grandmas. . .but, I just feel sad when this question is asked. I wish I had a child younger, but I had many yrs of infertility, and he is the best blessing of our lives. I wish I could completely identify why I get sad, and I wish I had a reply that didn't sound, well, almost , apologetic. Suggestions??? Insights??? Thanks. My dh is trying to be supportive, but I don't think he truely "gets it".
