I know, I know.....TWO blog posts in one day. While this is unusual for me, but when the situation presents its self, I must act. Perhaps someday I will be one of those blog gals who can write all my posts for one week while I'm waiting for the floors to dry on a Sunday afternoon, but for now, you get me on a "right here, right now" basis.
The Husband offered to keep The Little Boy while I was working tonight. Actually, my exact words were, "I'm taking the older two with me to work. If you think I'm taking that naughty non-nap taking 3yo, you have another thing coming, okay honey?".
On the way to the Y, The Boy was fiddling with the radio. Normally NOBODY messes with my radio stations, but tonight, he asked nicely & agreed to not turn the volume up, so we were good. He stopped at a station that was playing some 80's tunes; this made me happy. He started singing along to REM's "It's The End Of The World As We Know It", & asked me if I knew all the words. Why yes, of course, who DOESN'T know all the words, right?? The Girl piped up from the backseat & said, "is this song an oldie, Mom?". I told them that I've known this song for a very long time; that it's one of my all time favorites. The Boy asked, "well, just how old is it?". I told him it was about 25 years old. That's when he stated, "wow, I was barely in kindergarten then". WHAT?!?!? I told him that he wasn't even born; wasn't even a twinkle in any one's eye; was nowhere even close to being on this earth. So of course, the girl had to say, "25 years ago...just how old were you, Mom? I bet you were about my age, huh?".
Yes my darling daughter, I was "about your age".
And I feel fine....
