Last night JL was changing JSL’s diaper, so I took NHL to the bathroom before bed. We were chatting along the way. Here’s our conversation:
Me: “Wow, NHL you are going to be 4 tomorrow, you are SO old!”
NHL: “No, Mommy I’m not old, I’ll be old when I’m 20.” (He was very matter of fact)
Me: “So 20 is old is it?”
NHL: “Yes, 20 is old and 21 older.”
Me: “You’re right NHL. Wow, if 20 is old then how old is daddy?”
NHL: “He’s VERY old. He’s thirty!”
(Me trying not to laugh hysterically at the way he said it)
Me: “NHL he’s actually 32 now, what do you think of that?”
NHL: “Very old!”
At about this time JL comes with JSL and sees us laughing in the bathroom – kind of a strange sight .. . -er well in other households maybe.
It goes to show once again that kids say the darndest things!
