It’s Just a Number

Yesterday while driving around in the car Andrew (5) announced, “Liam’s dad is 44.”

Me: “How do you know that?”

Andrew: “He told me.” Liam is a friend of Andrew’s at school. Andrew thinks the world of him.

Me: “How old do you think Liam’s mom is?”

Andrew: “Probably 17 or 18.”

Me thinking: Well, since Liam’s 5 that would mean she had Liam when she was 12.

Me: “Ah, probably not. I think she’s a little older than that.”

Andrew thinking for a moment: “Yeah, she’s probably 78.”
