Another birthday is around the corner for me, so it's comforting to know that my 3-year-old doesn't view old people as throwaways of society.
Madeline: When I'm older and bigger, I can do lots of things like put things in oven.
Me: Well, you'll have to be a lot older to do that.
Madeline: Are you old?
Me: Yeah. I'm pretty old, especially to you.
Madeline: I still want to keep you.
