    Yesterday I went into town to buy them their 25th wedding anniversary present, that made me think they probably are getting 'old'. They aren't actually that old though, 47 I think.

    Wow, I've never really thought of my parents as old. I guess they are kind of old but don't really act old. My parents don't have greys as they dye their hair to avois the greys (they have been sice the age of like 30). My mum looks very young considering her age - people have thought we're sisters since I was like 12. My dad looks older but doesn't act it.

    I don't really think my parents are old. In fact I know that they are not old!! My mom and dad are both 41. People think my dad is my older brother! I am 18 but people think I am 15 so I guess he looks pretty young and my mom looks young too. When I was 10, the moms in the school playground thought she was my baby sitter!!! When she said I was his mom they were like 'oh'. And in secondary school people were like omg you're mum is a slutz lol.
