A few weekends ago, Hubby brought Eldest with him while he worked at the Boston Boat Show. Hubby had a badge, so he got in for free. Admission was free for ages 5 and under. Since he had no cash on him, before they reached the ticket window, Hubby quietly said to Eldest, "You're five, okay?" Eldest nodded his head solemnly in agreement.
Later that afternoon, Hubby was engaged in conversation with a client while Eldest was exploring a boat. Hubby then introduced Eldest to the gentleman, who leaned down to ask him, "How old are you, son?"
Without missing a beat, Eldest said firmly, "I'm five."
Hubby chuckled and shook his head and said, "It's okay, bud. You can be six now."
