Generation Gap

Most of the time my husband and I see eye to eye, but occasionally we don't. The other day was one of those times.

I don't remember what we were discussing.  The topic wasn't important and it was only a casual, non-heated exchange but I couldn't understand where he was coming from and vice versa.  Ryan, our son, was listening in and sided with Dad.

They shared a look like, what is she talking about? 

Then my husband said to me, "It's because of our generation gap. You just don't understand."  A smile played at his lips.

I raised an eyebrow. "What do you mean, I'm only three months older than you?"

"Yeah but I'm in the 17-40 generation and you belong in the 41-80 category."  He laughed knowing he had me.

What could I say?

I laughed too, knowing that time is on my side.  By the end of September he'll be joining me in that older generation.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

  1. Forty-one is not old...
    We usually agree on stuff, but my wife does like to remind me that she's younger.

  2. So funny, and the boys always take dad's side! My youngest and his dad are so close in everything, looks personality - it's too sweet!

    I never win an argument in my house not with three men - Patches my Boston terrier tries to give support but let her lick your face and she's all yours! Traitor! :)

  3. So when he gets to 41, is he automatically going to side with you? :)

  4. Alex- I know, I still feel like a kid. He just likes picking on me! :)

    Yolanda- So funny! My two girls like to side with Dad too.

    JE- Oh no I'm sure he won't but at least I can pick on him about being in that "older generation" too. :)

  5. Aha Kathy he will join you soon! 41 is a kid these days.

  6. Well, the older generation should be the superior one anyway!
