In the car this past weekend:
“Mama, you and daddy are really old. Really, really old.”
I chuckled. “Oh, really, Button?”
“YES. Daddy’s so old he’s gonna need a staff to walk soon. And you’re so old you’re about to have all gray hair.”
Now I was really laughing. I remember when I thought 29+ was old, too. But gray hair and a cane? We’re like half our life away from even close to that! She was totally serious, though.
Funny thing… about 24 hours later, Niki threw out his back in such a bad way that he has to walk over hunched – and he totally resembles an old grandpa who needs a “staff” to walk.
I wonder in what way I’ll be getting “gray hair” soon?
