Is age really just a number?

This morning Aaron asked me if 6 is old.

“No, my boy,” I said, “6 is not old but it is older than 5.”

“Why?” I ask.

“When I am 6, will I forget things?  Because when you are old you start to forget!”

“Ummmmm…” Said I.

“Like you forget to make an appointment for me with the dentist!” Said Aaron.

Please excuse me while I call and make my almost 6 year old an appointment at the dentist!
