Let's Get Ageless With Olay - Toronto Teacher Mom

Let's Get Ageless With Olay

Friday, January 22, 2016

Next month, I will be celebrating my 10th blog anniversary here on Toronto Teacher Mom. It's hard to believe it has been a decade since I first ventured into the blogosphere. Since then, my blog has seen many changes in terms of format, template, content and more. For a while, though, I kept my bio pretty much the same. It went something along the lines of: "28 year young kid at heart with a passion for languages, Latin rhythms and licorice." Many of my social profiles still bear that same bio and year after year, I would update my age without a blink of an eye. This year won't be any different. You see, age is but a number and I never worried about whether I looked my age, nor have I ever felt the need to keep my age a secret. Except maybe where my students are concerned. I only keep it a secret out of sheer amusement so that when I do tell them my age in French, I make sure to say it so fast that many of them can't figure it out anyway. (Insert mischievous laughter here.

Oddly enough, what shocks them more than my age is when they learn that I have two children age seven and ten. That's when the jaws drop. I suspect my frequent uninhibited attempts at grabbing their attention with exaggerated song and dance routines, among other silly antics, are what make it so difficult for them to believe I am mature enough to have kids of my own. But then, I'll use some outdated expression or make reference to an old movie and then their doubts are erased. Take, for example, the expression: "You sound like a broken record." To think, none of my students have ever seen an LP record before. The closest explanation for a broken record would be likening it to a corrupted MP3 file. Old sayings aside, nothing made me feel "old" as much as the chance encounter I had last month when I bumped into a former grade 4 student at the liquor store. Um, yeah. Nuff said.

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging #PGmom

Are you among us Canadian women who do not feel defined by our chronological age? Chances are that you might be. Ninety per cent of us believe that age will continue to become less and less relevant. Last month, Olay unveiled their Ageless initiative that explores how Canadian women and their counterparts around the globe approach aging. Women are encouraged to share their expectations when it comes to beauty as well as their age ‘giveaways’ (e.g. having a teenager, the type of music they listen to, etc.). Can you relate to the age 'giveaways' in this video?


I just saw that video today and I kid you not but, had you been in my living room two days ago, you would have caught in mid MC Hammer dance. Oh, yeah. You can't touch this!
