So last night I was sitting in line waiting to be allowed into the theater to see Pirates 4 (Wonderful, BTW!) and was the first in line since I got there good and early. A couple and their great nephew (I know cause the man was quite talkative and told me as much) sat down on the floor next to me and at one point he nodded towards a young woman with a baby on her hip and said "She looks like a teenager. Man, so many babies having babies these days!" (He looked to be in his 50's or maybe 60's-I'm a terrible judge of age based on looks)
I looked at the young woman who admittedly DID look like a teen and while I didn't say "That's an interesting assumption", I said "Hm, I think I probably looked about her age when I had my first child 10 years ago." He gave me a surprised look and asked "YOU have KIDS?" (I was alone and in a Jack Sparrow sweatshirt and jeans I probably didn't look particularly motherly. LOL) I nodded and said "Yep, two boys, 10 and 8. I was 22 when I had my first..."
He blinked at me and then looked at the young woman with the baby and said "Oh...well, that's a good age..."
As someone who is frequently mistaken for being younger (and I'm not complaining! LOL!) I guess I tend to be less likely to assume that just because a girl who LOOKS like a teen and is holding a baby on her hip that she's a teen mother.
