3 signs you're getting old

Sign #1: The other day, you saw the Harvard baseball players lip-synching to Call Me Maybe on the Today show. When you watch the viral video on YouTube, your 7-year-old thinks it's SO funny that Mommy is watching that. She's known the song for months.  


Sign #2: You think the guys are cute but what most excites you is that their YouTube channel supports Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of kids with brain tumors.

Sign #3: You start fantasizing about organizing a dance flash mob to the song. On your commuter train.

  2. Want to feel really old? That girl was signed by Justin Beiber. Yeah, that's old.

    And sigh, young, hunky baseball players? Set to cheesy pop music? Yes, please.

  4. I'm thinking there should be something in there about the secret, or not so secret, joy I get in embarrassing my children (mostly at home) by thinking I'm all that when I sing the newest (to me) discovered cool song. I'm pretty sure I killed "I'm sexy and I know it" for my teenager.

    And I"m thinking 9:30 is impressively late to even be awake.

  8. I am sorry to hear that; I hope your son is on the mend.

    Anon, you are so right, how could I have not noted the lack of seatbelts? Clearly that is a sign I am not really old!

    Jenny, I watched all the other lip-synch videos to that song—Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, etc. So we will have to find some way to get those hours of our lives back.

  10. I keep watching the video, trying to figure out who I think is the cutest (boy with sunglasses). Then I realize I'm old enough to be his mom
