Conversations With Luke,  Elementary School

Age: A Conversation With Luke

Eating dinner at Stevi B’s Pizza Buffet earlier this week (what can I say, we were weak, but we had a coupon!). They have a small selection of arcade games in the back. Note Luke is 3 months shy of turning 7.

  • Luke: Can I go back and play games?
  • DH: Let me finish my pizza first.
  • Luke: But I can go back by myself!
  • Me: Luke, you’re not quite old enough to do that yet. [Note: I was much more concerned about the other kids who were being totally wild back there than Luke doing something.]
  • Luke: What about when I’m 8? 8 is lots older.
  • Me: Probably not, but we’ll see. It’s not really about a number.
  • Luke: What about 10? 10 is like a big kid! Big kids can go back by themselves.
  • DH: Maybe when you’re 35.
  • Luke (horrified): Noooooo!! I just want to be 10.
