How to make your mom feel old.....

Us in the Honda on the way to school today.......

Girls: (hearing the advertisement on Radio Disney for the new Witch Mountain movie) Oh we want to see that, can we go see that?, what's it about (imagine the three oldest all talking at the same time)

Me: I'm not sure what's its about but there were two more before this one you might want to see.

Girls: There were two more? What were they called? What were they about? Can we get them?( imagine again-all talking at the same time)

Me: I think Witch Mountain and Return to Witch Mountain (I've since looked that up and I was wrong)

8 yr old: Is it the same people in the movie?

Me: I doubt it-those movies came out when I was little. I'll add them to our Netflix so you can see them.

12 yr old: (with a tiny bit of tween annoyance in her voice) Are they black and white?


This is as bad as when my 8 yr old asked if we had toilets when I was little :)

Have a great day!!!

So funny! My son was really confused the other day when I said I used to play with the same My Little Pony dolls his sister enjoys. "But mom don't you know those were made for kids, not old people." oh dear...

Out of the mouths of babes. We teach them to be honest and it backfires on us! *sigh* My hubby was asked once by the kids if the dinosaurs were alive when he was little. He's 33 and I'm 30! What the heck!?

Yeah, I asked my mom if they had sidewalks when she was little!

Thanks for visiting my blog last week when it was featured on SITS.

Stopping over from SITS! Don't feel too old! I used to watch the Witch Mountain movies when I was little too, and I'm only 29.
The thing that will make me feel old is when one of my kids asks me what a VHS tape is.

Oh my! Those little ones have a way of making us feel older than we are, but it's so cute when they do it.

That's almost as good as when Eagles and Queen songs were re-released and we asked how we knew the names of the NEW songs? We told them that we'd been listening to them since we were their age--to which we were asked? How could that be? They're a NEW band and you are OLD. They're not OLD like you are!
Kids, can't live with them, but can't kill them! LOL

I never thought I'd be the one answering those questions. And I never thought I'd be the one saying, "I never had cell phones/computers/cable tv when I was your age."
