Not that I'm feeling old, or anything ...

But, last night I was babysitting my nieces.
It turns out that my nieces and my son are all obsessed with the question "how old are you?"
I have no problem telling them my age, but after being asked a zillion times by every child I meet, I grow a little tired of it.
So last night when my 5-year-old niece said to me "Aunt Laural, how old are you?"
I said "how old do you think I am?"
Kyla looked at me, thought about it for a minute and then said "Ummmm 82?"
Nice.
She was completely serious.
It turns out that I may be buying that wrinkle cream a little earlier than anticipated.
Kyla's baby sister redeemed them, though, when she guessed that I'm 4.
I'm thinking 29 is a happy medium???

Yes.
Quite a bit better than 34, which I will be in another week and a half.

I'm not counting or anything. LOL

29 is way better than 82, but I dunno about better than 4. I mean, at 4 there are no mortgages. lol

My 7-year old cousin counted the age difference between us, and determined that when he was the age I am now, I'd be six feet under. Sweet.
