Mathematical Genius

I've heard it said that you age 5 years for every child you have. In addition, it's been said you can add another 5 years on top of that, for every teenager you've raised into adulthood.

So let's do the math to find out how old I really am:

Kid #1 (age 24) 5+5 10
Kid #2 (age 21) 5+5 = 10
Kid #3 (age 17) 5+2.5 = 7.5
Kid #4 (age 10) 5
Kid #5 (age 8) 5
Kid #6 (age 7) 5
Kid #7 (age 4) 5

Total advanced aging years: 47.5 years
Actual age (as of 12/12) 43 years

This makes me 90.5 years old.

I sure wish I had the wisdom that should go with being that old.
