Mobile Americans think I look very young

So ... call me insecure and unappreciative. But I have a baby face, always have and probably always will! Its a family thing. But Im 29... I always get ID which is fine but a CM said to me yesterday that I looked 15 😱 everyone here seems to think my wife ... who is four years older than me ... is my mum. Its really made self conscious... although we do always have a good laugh at it! But I hate the way I feel judged and looked down on etc, Ive even had a CM verify with another CM that my passport was not a fake. Americans look so much older for their age too! Its always bugged me and I know I will be thankful when Im older but its gotten me a bit down this trip 😔 I know.. I know! First world problems!

I used to look really young for my age and when me and DH owned our first house a lady knocked on the door and asked for my mum.

Im 41 now and dont look so young anymore. Enjoy it. It soon passes.

All 4 of my children look younger than they are my daughter was asked for ID a couple of weeks ago and she's 40
My youngest son who will be 30 in October has grown a beard but still gets asked for ID.

The only place they he doesn't get asked for ID is our local Asda as he used to work there.

Be thankful - when you had to be 16 to buy cigarettes (I was buying for my mum) I was asked why I wasnt at school , the shop keeper apologised when I said because I am 28! I would love to still look a lot younger but sadly my face has caught up with my age 😀 my middle son who starts training as a policeman on Monday has the same issue. Hes 21 and when he was helping me taking the groceries in from the delivery man the man said you will miss his help when he has to go back to school 😀 he left school 6 years ago !

My daughter is the same, she is 25 but will often be mistaken for being still at school, maybe because she never wears any make up and is a jeans and jumper gal? she bought a new car a year ago and we had to go with her initially due to the garage thinking she was just 17 and looking at her 'first' car so not taking her seriously on her own (they were fab after that and had a laugh about it with them)

ID'ing in the US is more routinely done than here though so not something I would take personally, I have never been ID'd in the UK but when in the US will get ID'd even though I am in my 50's
