This afternoon, Abigail and I went out for our annual date to pick out her birthday plates, napkins and party favors. I happened to have my husbands iPod with me so I scrolled through as we sat in traffic. We listened to Phantom of the Opera and sang loudly with the windows down. Then I came across something a little different. I am not sure of all the words to this song, so forgive me if there are some bad parts which neither one of us would approve. Also, forgive me if I am getting my husband in trouble right now. ;) I stopped at a song that I remembered was kind of a whistling type, so I threw it on to play for Abi.... "Will you still need me? Will you still feed me, when I'm 64?"
Abigail: 64!!! That is sooooo old.
Mom: Well, that's close to Oma and Papa's ages. (sorry Dad's and Mom's, just truth but we don't think you are old at all)
Abigail: What?!?! No way.
Mom: How old do you think Papa is, Abigail?
Abigail: 40 (how's that make you feel Daddy?)
Mom: Well, if that's the case he had me when he was about 6.
Abigail: What?!? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (she finds this very funny!)
Mom: Abi honey, Daddy and I are closer to 40 than Papa.
Abigail: Really?!? (still totally shocked and mouth gaping)
I certainly remember when 30 was old. How about you?
