On a scale of 1-10, 10 being perfect, we're at 10+.

Which is not to say we've escaped the usual aging and family stuff. There have been many bad days/weeks/months along the way but we've learned to go with the flow. Works for us.

It's like we talk about. "Us? No. We're not getting older, the KIDS are getting older."

My 88 year old mother still calls my brothers (twins) in their mid 40s "the boys"

When my oldest sister turned 50, I asked my grandmother how it felt to have a 50-year-old granddaughter. She laughed and said, "pretty good!" She was 92 at the time.

I hope to be able to refer to my girls as kids when they are in their 50s.

My youngest brother just turned 50, so now my mother has a 69-year-old daughter and a 50-year-old son (and another four of us in between).
