A 5 year old told me I look old! I asked him why and he said I have bumps on my face. They're freckles...even young people have them! Okay... after 5 minutes of being depressed, I realized that I'm 55 years older than him and a 20 year old is old to him. lol.. I'm over it! I really love little kids.

I once had a 3rd grader ask me if I was alive when Abraham Lincoln was alive. I was in my early 40s.

Hah! One of my Kinders told me yesterday I must be rich. So, of course I asked him why because y'all know how affluent teachers are! He said, "Because you're super old and all old people are rich. My grandma is rich--she gave me FIVE DOLLARS on my birthday!" I'm 43.

I was 100 but now I am between 17-25

I told 3rd graders I was 100 and some of them were not sure. A boy said you can't be 100 you move too fast.

This year, just a few weeks ago, I was asked by my 1st graders and turned it around and asked them how old they are. After they answered, I said guess my age and braced myself. A boy says 25 and a sweet girl says 17!

Last year a third grade girl noticed the veins in my hands and asked about them because her hands didnít have them. I told her I was an old lady and thatís what happens when you get old. Then she grabbed her face by the jowl area, pulled them down and said, ďAnd old people get these, too.Ē Gee, thanks

And, when I taught second grade we used an app on the 100th day to make us look 100 years old. One dear commented that I didnít look all that much different. Gotta love those kids and have a sense of humor

I'm 48, and about 15 years ago, I had a kiddo say to me as I was laughing, "Hey! You only have one dimple!" I said something like, "Yeah, just the one." He was still looking at it when I stopped smiling, looked confused for a second, and then said, kinda surprised, "Hey! You still have a line there!" I remember laughing and then saying to him, "You never comment on a lady's lines and wrinkles! That's not cool!"

Kids! I just love 'em!

One year my birthday was on the 100th day of school, so it made perfect sense to my kinders that I was turning 100!

super freckly and I ALWAYS have my kindergarteners comment on it. One girl asked me this year what was on my face. I was worried about having food or coffee or something, then she clarified that she meant to spots covering me

I also had a student tell me that it looked like I was wearing white socks because my feet were so white.

I was a Girl Scout leader for years. One day at a Junior troop meeting (grades 4-6) we were talking about the meaning of the insignia on their vests. I mentioned that they could get a 5 year pin and one girl immediately noticed my 30 year pin. A look of amazement came over her face.

"Mrs. lisa53, have you been a Girl Scout for 30 years?"

I replied that actually it had been 34 years, and I would get a new pin next year.

She paused to digest this astonishing fact, and then mused, "Wow. My mom is only 30 years old!"

Your story made me laugh out loud! The look on my face says I should be retired, too. But, the look of my birth certificate says I gotta go in for at least 8 more years.

I had a parent tell me that I was old. (And I was in my 50s.)

His daughter came home and mentioned that she wanted him to come to open house to see that her teacher was old! So he did and he told me so. He was so excited and I was confused because at first I thought he was insulting me (the age thing) however, he cleared it up when he said that all the other teachers are so young and look like they are in high school. He was so relieved that his daughter had me as her teacher!

Yeah, little kids don't have any concept of age at all. I was teaching kindergarten one year, and while having a class discussion, one of the kids asked me how old I was. I was trying to be silly, and said I was 83 (I was in my 30s at the time). I thought they would laugh and me and say, "no, really, how old are you?!"

They did not laugh, just accepted it as my age.

Went I first started teaching a kindergartner asked how old I was, when I told her I was 24 she was absolutely amazed at how old I was, it was like I told her I was 150 years old.

Last year I was asked by a first grader why I have lines on my face. I think I may need Botox

When DS1 was in 1st grade they were learning about pioneers since they had an upcoming field trip. On the way home from school one day he asked me if his dad and I were pioneer children !
