Can You Hear Me Now?

I'm getting the kids ready for bed and Breckyn asks me, "Mom, can you hear the washing machine going?"

I pause and listen, "Yep, that's the washing machine."

Breckyn looks puzzled and says, "Huh, that's weird."

I'm a little confused.  "What's weird?"

She proceeds to tell me that they are learning about the human body in class.  Today they learned that the optimum age for hearing is 8-18.  She wanted to know if I could still hear everything that she could hear.  She figured I'm so old that I'd be going deaf by now.

I look at her with my mouth gaping open.  "How old do you think I am Breckyn?"

"Well, I just wondered...." she says.

She makes me feel so pretty sometimes.

Maybe she is just thinking about the last time I was out there and I couldn't hear most things. But you are far from old.
