"The Olden Days"

Ty who is 8 years old comes into the living room...this is how it went:

Ty: "Mom, look I just invented something!"

He shows me...he wrapped a scarf around his foot and held the ends to make it easier to hop around on one foot (he had just fallen in the kitchen and hurt his knee).

Me: "Oh Ty, we did that when I was a kid!"
Ty: "Really?"
Me: "Yes. Sorry, but it's nothing new." 
Ty: "I can't believe you guys did that in the OLDEN DAYS!" 

Seriously??!! I'm 30 yrs old people!! How old do our children think we are?! 

 Anyways, I think I'll go make myself a glass of Metamucil and go take out my teeth....
