20 Kids Who Made Adults Realise How “Old” They Are

Published 5 months ago

Despite the years under our belts, we still feel young at heart even after we’ve had kids and started our own families. So it can feel brutally shocking when our spawn reminds us that we are old, whether through an innocent comment about how The Lion King came out 30 years ago or mention ‘the 19-hundreds’ as if it was the era of the dinosaurs. 

Indeed, there’s a whole new generation in town and one viral thread on X is where parents get together to discuss with as much humour as possible all the little ways how the kids keep reminding us that we are actually rather obsolete fossils at this point.

A girl : My mom was 40 when she had my brother. She was sited in the school newsletter as having been part of PTA for 21 years. I always joked my parents were Vulcans. Every 7 years, they had a kid. 10/56, 1/64, 12/70.

Zoey Rayne: I can top that. I was teaching preschoolers about dinosaurs, and a three year old asked me if I was there when the asteroid killed them all! I’ll give her points for thinking I could somehow survive a mass extinction event.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
