Not married? Not old!

Going up the stairs of the TC library to see the giant bear:

Sophie “Let’s run up!”

Me “What? No, I can’t run up Soph.”

Sophie “Come on Jedge!”

Me “Soph, I’m an old lady, I can’t run up.”

Sophie “Je-Ji, you’re not old, you don’t even have a husband!”

Apparently, these kids have a “different” understanding of what a grown, old person is, or at least of the requirements for it. Remember when Nick thought I wasn’t an adult and thus not responsible enough to care for him, because I wasn’t married? I seem to have had it all wrong. It’s not that I’m getting old and I’m still not married, it’s more that because I’m not married I can’t be considered old… win!

  1. Apparently I'm going to be forever young…

  2. Don't you worry, we can be young together! 🙂

  3. i love the way children think! only two options – to be old and married or young and single! how funny! i wonder if they think there’s such a thing as being married too young!

    • I wonder… I’ll ask Sophie to see what she thinks about getting married young. Although, I have a sense that she thinks 15 would be perfect for getting married, since she told me the other day she thought I was around 22 (!)
