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? ┬áBecause 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!
