Too Old?

I keep wondering when "too old" is going to kick in.  And I'm not talking about me.  Guess I could be, but I'm not.  Anyway, my little guy, who is now fourteen, is still totally into both Halloween trick-or-treating and Easter egg hunting. 

Every year I ask, "Are you going trick-or-treating/hunting?"

And he says, "Duh, yeah!"  OK the "duh" is less and less utilized in the last couple of years, but before that it was standard issue response.  Hmmmm...guess that means I might have moved beyond being a "dumb" parent.  I will celebrate quietly, I assure you.

Given that today was Easter and we were going to a family egg hunt, the question came up again.

Me:  "Are you going to hunt for eggs today?"

Little guy:  "Uh, yeah!"  See that?  The "duh" has been replaced by "uh".  YAY!!  See?  Celebrating quietly.

Me:  "When do you think you'll stop doing the egg hunting?"

Little guy:  "I dunno, why would I?"

Me:  "I dunno."

Little guy:  "Mom, there's candy."

So there my little guy went a'hunting, he and the two two-year-olds and the four-year-old.  Did my guy feel out of place?  Absolutely not.  Duh...

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
