498

Y'all, I'm stealing today, from my friend Lisa. She got me started in blogging a couple of years ago, and for that, I think I'm grateful. Jury's still out. She stole this from her cousin's blog. What fun!

"I recently overheard a mom say that her son was 31 months! Why not just say that he’s two and a half? I plan on saying that Audrey is one after her birthday next month, but I’ve heard a ton of people talk about their kids ages in months for the first few years. So, I pose the question to you: What age do you think we should drop the 'months' and move to “years”?

By the way, I’m 367 months old."

I'm not very good at math. Let's see ... 41 times 12 is (my Evil Sister, the engineer, would know this right away, I'm guessing) ... 492. Add the months since my birthday and I get 498. Dang! I'm nearly 500 months old! I'm going to start using this when people ask my age. I LIKE IT!

So - how old are YOU?

Until I write again ...

I am so old I ran out of months

Poltzie said...

I say you go with years (or years and a half) once they are over a year. It's just too confusing otherwise!

"How old are you?"

"539."

"Wow. That's old!"

Oh, this is hilarious! Ummm... I am 677 months old. There! Feel better? I'm going to use this next time a Mom tells me how old her baby is in months, lol.

I feel like a spring chicken around here at 371 months young.

I can't wait to get the dress. Anna wouldn't have been able to wear it for Easter anyway. Too flipping cold. It so happens we are going to see Mom the next two weekends too. So we can probably take the pictures we talked about too.

I'm 456 months. 4, 5, 6... that is kind of neat :) It depended who I was talking to/what I was talking about if I used months or years/half years. I did months up to about 1 1/2 and half years up till 4. Since at one point mine are (this year) 5,6,9,10 for 3 months, I still will specify... will be _ next month, or turned _ last month/in January.

I'll be 396 on Friday!
By the way, I think the month-age should stop at 2. That's what I did. After 2, it's just annoying.
