I cherish the talks that Emily and I have, as I know soon either I won't be cool enough to chat with anymore, or my 4.5 years will be up and she will be off to college. (Yes, I will have a college student in 4.5 years **sob**)
This afternoon we were chatting as she got ready to study for her math midterm tomorrow and this is how it went.
Emily: Mom, when you were my age did people take other's cell phones and text people pretending to be them?
Me: Ummm, no. When I was your age cell phone's didn't exist.
Emily: Really? What about email. Did people hack into other's emails and send out messages pretending to be them?
Me: Ummm, no. Again, when I was your age we didn't have email.
Emily: Really? Are you sure?
Me: Yes I am sure. I may be too old to have grown up with cell phones and email, however I am not so old that I can't remember if I had them or not.
I felt like my mom, when she told me that she used to walk 5 miles, uphill, in the snow, to school everyday because the horse was in the shop having knee arthritis treatment.
I guess it's official. I am old.
