I inherit last week’s tabloids from my mother in law. The other day, People’s issue covering Kate Middleton’s 30th birthday was laying on the coffee table. My 10 year old daughter K noticed the issue.
K: Wow, she’s 30. That’s sooooo old!! Her life is half over!!!!
Me: Hello, your mother is sitting right here. I’m older than 30.
K: Well, it’s old for her, not you.
Me: Yeah, yeah… trying to talk your way out of it
K: You’re going to live to be 150 because you are always going to be around for me. She’s only going to be 60 or something so her life is half over.
I can remember being a kid and thinking that 30 was SOOOO old and thinking that I was always going to want my parents around (man did that change in my teenage years LOL). I will remind her of this in a few years when she gets into that stage.
I always say that you are only as old as you want to be. I try not to be “old”. 🙂
