A sure sign of old age

So Sunday night Aaron and I went to my sister Callie's Christmas concert. She is in the UVU institute choir. For those who don't know about Callie, she is my only sister and we are 16 years apart.... making her 22.

So the concert ends and Callie comes down to a small circle of family and friends to tell her what a great job she did.. yada yada. So in this small group of people is a friend of Callie's I have never seen before, along with my brother and sister in law with their baby. So this girl turns to Stacey, my sister in law and says, " are you Callie's sister?" Stacey says "no, I'm the sister in law and this is my baby." She then turns to me and says, "and your the mom?" Stacey busts out laughing as I say, "no, I'm the sister" she says "oh, sorry, so your the OLDER sister." yes, I am.

Now the rest of the evening at the institute is a blur as I am instantly aware of every wrinkle and grey hair on my head. All I remember is that she STUCK AROUND! I would think she would be embarrassed and take off, but no she just hung around right by my side as everyone visited. Then when we decided to leave she was right there with us and walked out the same time. Holy crap! .... get lost

I guess I could have had Callie when I was 16. It's not impossible... but geezzz really?

ladies and gentleman........my children!

So yesterday on the way home from school (I picked Anson up early because he threw up 2x in the lobby) he tells me when he grows up he wants to be a lunch server in the lunch room. It looks like fun and they always get to eat first.

Later that same day, I ask Morgan if she wants a banana, which she likes, and she says "no, I'm alergic to bananas cause they have snot in them."
