22 years ago . . . . .

This is what Sid told the kids on New Year’s Eve . . . .

“Boys, 22 years ago on this night,  I did something I had never done before.”

The boys are quiet and intent on Sid’s face.  They can’t wait to hear this one.

“22 years ago, I kissed your Mama for the first time.”

Dead silence. 

Then Sidney says “Oh.”  A hint of dissappointment.

But Lincoln quite earnestly responds, “Well, THAT was exciting.”

Sidney says, “You were 16 years old and Mama was 15 years old.”

And I was immediately exasperated that he doesn’t do his math work that quickly.  Since he so obviously CAN.
