If you were in The Chit Chat Club this morning or seen the question I posted you will be able to figure out what’s on my mind.
I was thinking about how we perceive ourselves as well as our kids and our parents at the same age.
I know for a fact that at 17 I was more mature than my daughters. My mom isn’t around for me to ask her that question and honestly we never talked about it.
So I got to thinking about our graduation pictures.
In the 50’s they looked older than we did in the 80’s. And in the 80’s we looked older than my kids do in this century. So do we have a version of Benjamin Buttons on our hands?  

I am going to dig up the graduation pictures of my mom, me and my daughter and post them here. It may take me a few since I have to dig them up then figure out how to scan then add here.

If you have any thru the years graduations pics please post them so we can have some memories shared.

    • I have often said how the generation gap has narrowed since i was a kid.  When we were 16, would we have been caught DEAD wearing something our mother would wear?  Now, mothers and daughters SHARE clothing.  When i was 16, my mother had her hair done once/week.  I wouldn’t leave the house after the second day of not washing my hair!  And the idea that i couldn’t drag a brush or comb through my hair would drive me to distraction.  Now, i see my same haircut on girls/women from ages 2-80.

      Perhaps as we begin to live longer, we have also begun to mature more slowly.  Why not?  We do have plenty of time (in the eyes of the young, anyway).

    • I think the styles were different...they were more stricter and the dress code was very different back then...and as the years went by things began to change...styles change...the dress code changed...parents are a bit more open-minded and this is passed on to the kids...when you come to think of it...everything changed...change is just a part of history and life...and in the end...history repeats itself...the styles of the 60’s and 70’s are back in...and who knows maybe our grandchildren will be wearing what we wore in the 80’s or whichever decade you grew up in.

      I remember back in the day...I hated bell-bottoms...and hipsters...now a days...my kids wear flares aka bell-bottoms and low-riders aka hipsters...and today they are considered hot...I even wear them when I get the chance...

    • I have a friend who has three generations of senior pictures matted and set in one frame. Her mom, herself and her daughter.  In their case, it’s like looking at peas in a pod.

      I don’t think I even have one of my own senior pics any more, but I think I look older than my mom did.  She was such a baby face.  I’d say my girls’ senior pics they look about a mature/immature as I did.

      i’ll try to find some pics to post.

    • Ok so the only reason I had mine were because my mom started going thru things when she had been given her prognosis and gave me stuff. That stuff was all still in a box that I hadn’t unboxed yet.
      I’m grateful now that my mom was such a packrat!
