Out of the Mouths of Babes


Our sweet son turned to me after school yesterday and asked a good question. "Mama, were all parents that are alive now born in the 1900s?"
I had to think about it for a minute. Then I realized that he was right. "Yes, son, you are right. All parents who are alive today were born in the 1900s."
Then, I wanted to bow my head and cry. We are OLD!

My kids were all born in the 1900's, too...so I guess I'm REALLY old! I even have two that were born in....gasp....the 80's! ;-}

how funny. J and I were just having a very similar conversation. And I believe they are the same age. J will be 10 one month from today. YIKES!

Oh man, nothing like a comment like that from your kid to make you feel old, right?

My 6-year old asked me a couple months if I was around when dinosaurs went extinct. Nice.

Oh my stars....I've never thought of it that way and it's scary to think about!

1900s makes it sound sooo long ago. Say LATE 1900s. That takes the sting off a little. My children still can't grasp life before cell phones.
