You Know You’re Getting Old When…

Today at lunch my 4 and a half year old was talking about “the 90s,” asking if we had to do everything by hand.

I had never heard him refer to a decade before, so i asked, “How do you know about the 90s sweetie?”

“I just know way back in the 90s there was nothing electric.”

Ah yes. The olden days of the 1990s. Before the turn of the century.

And then:

“Can we go back to doing laundry the way you used to have to do it in the nineties with a bucket of water and a washboard and that wringing thing? That way is so much more fun.”

  1. Oh thank you for this post. So hilarious.

  2. Oh my God that made my day — why oh why did you leave New York again? I still want to do that interview – sorry I haven’t gotten to it with the babe and work. Major reports due soon & then I’ll have more time.
