(tim’s age) – (my age) = 13

Tim graduated high school the year I began kindergarten.  I find it very funny to see the tassel on his graduation cap with the same year I was learning how to share and spell my name.  I don’t know if it is a fad or if it has always been this way… older guy… younger girl…  I’m guessing the latter.  We don’t notice it – as anyone who is in the same boat will tell you.  In truth, you end up seeing the person for who you fell in love with and not for their age.  Granted, I do think there is a limit.  I would definitely notice if my husband was sixty and I was twenty-five.  Forty plus years would be a bit much.  Tim and I are thirteen years apart and it works.  My parents, especially my dad, freaked out in the beginning but they’ve come to love him like their own.  My mom even introduces him as “my other son.”  It is strange to think that for thirteen years Tim was around when I wasn’t. If he and I had met even six years earlier, he would have had to get a permission slip to pick me up from school because I didn’t have my license yet.

    New here and just browsing around. I am really enjoying what I have seen of your blog. Very witty, very relatable, so I subscribed — you are the first!
    PS: My guy is 10 years my senior and though the mental age gap is minimal, I often find myself thinking (and giggling) about the fact that when he graduated high school, I was perfecting cursive writing and such — much like your thoughts on crayons.
    Good reading. Looking forward to more.
