She's 8?

Peanut's birthday is next month. She's going to be 7 but everytime someone asks, she tells them she's going to be 8. She's quite convincing at it too, I had to actually pause and think about it the other day. She doesn't understand why she can't be 8 yet. So my question is, why can't we be what ever age we want to be? Why do we have to follow these stinkin rules that say we have to go in order!

Okay, then, I think I'll go back to 32.

Jeepers, I think I'd like to be 8, too! And what a great picture!!

Cindy, you could pull 32 off!!!

What a cute picture!
I don't know what age I'd pick.

R said...

Because there is order to things and order is good.

She is sort of right though, in four months she will be living for eight years...

Leslee said...

badoozie, you act like you're in your late twenties or early thirties. I'd go with that!

lynn, how old do you feel?

r, it took me a second to realize what you were talking about, but you are right!

I love that picture, Les..that is a great one!

7, huh? Great age. Aiden will be 7 in June. whoopie. Ellie will be 4 in 6 days, so I will have a 4, 6, 8, and 10 year old. (phew)

She's technically telling the truth. She will (eventually) be 8.

That's 56 in dog years, Mugsy. If I could reverse-convert my age as if they were dog years, I'd be 6 and a half.
