How old will I be?

Lukas likes to ask how old he will be when Konrad is four years old...eight!

The other day he kept going: "How old will I be when Konrad is eight?" "Twelve."

"How old will I be when Konrad is twelve?" "Sixteen. Oh my, Lukas will be driving a car!"

Now it's a game! "How old will I be when Konrad is sixteen?" "Twenty."

I'll spare you the counting by fours, but we went all the way until:

"How old will I be when Konrad is fifty-six?" "You'll be sixty, Lukas. Wow, I can't imagine you as a sixty-year old man. Let's just enjoy Lukas as a four-year old, ok?" That was starting to get to be too much for me to handle, Lukas at 60, and me probably not there to see it (ok, I could live to be 96, but the odds are not in my favor).

Thankfully, he laughed, and he actually did stop the game.

after watching the video of him talking about plumbing I can just imagine him going on and on about what age he'll be! LOL
