me about a friend: He's like my little brother
Silas: Why's he like your little brother
me: Because he's like my brother and he's younger, he's Kaia Joye's age
Silas: Oooooh, she's a lot younger
me: Yeah, she's younger
Eden: Mom, how old are you?
me: I'm 34
Silas: How old is Kaia Joye?
me: She's 26
Silas, with a guffaw: She's in her 20's! Woah! she's probably not even a grown up yet! She doesn't make good decisions. She must be in college.
me: No, she's an adult, a young adult. She finished college and she has a job now.
Silas: What's her job?
me: Remember, she teaches kids on the island?
Silas: I wish I could be in one of her classes.
