Sobering thoughts.

Posted: June 1, 2009 in Baby, General

I’ve been on this earth 37 years now. It’s weird, 37 sounds so old. I don’t feel old, but the number sounds old. I’m closing in on 40 which is sounding quite old. I think back to my parents and my perception of them. When they were 37 I was 12, I don’t think I had a gasp on what was old and what was “older”. Then again, I don’t know if I ever really thought about my parent’s ages until I was well into my 20’s.

So I guess this is poignant because today is Zee’s first day of daycare. This started me thinking of the other events and our relation in age.

  • Zee will start 1st grade in 2015, I’ll be 43.
  • Zee will start high school in 2023, I’ll be 51.
  • Zee will (assumingly) graduate college in 2031, I’ll be 58.
  • Zee will be my age in 2046, I’ll be 74.

There’s a good chance that I’ll see 2050 (Zee will be 41, I’ll be 78), and a very slim chance I’d see 2075 (Zee will be 66, I’d be 103). Certainly possible that he’ll see 2100 (he’d be 91).
