How old are you?

From Monday Mom – Neetika:
Ever since Hudson turned three, he has become obsessed with how old people are. And since he’s three, he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with asking anybody and everybody he sees their age. I don’t know if teaching him adages like “you never ask a lady her age!” will really penetrate right now, so I just let it go and chalk it up to adorable toddler behavior.

Although Hudson does all of this comprehensive aging research, he rarely remembers what people tell him, and so he asks them pretty much every time he sees them. However, he is very confident that he is three and his sister is six. He has heard her say a few times: “I’m six and a half”, so of course he now enjoys saying: “I’m three and a half”. I constantly remind him that he’s not. It’s very cute.

Hudson’s habit is a cute reminder that age is just a number. It certainly doesn’t matter to him how old you are, as long as you are willing to be nice and play with him. What a great concept.
