Perspectives on the passage of time

Last week Reid wore a super-cute skirt and top that used to be Danielle’s. They’re knit and have primary-coloured letters on a black background. While she was getting dressed we talked about how Danielle, who is not quite 16, wore the outfit when she was a little girl. Reid asked if people wore this sort of outfit a lot “in the olden days.” Yep, *in the olden days*, when Danielle was young, knit outfits were popular. Especially for the kids whose parents had newfangled inventions like the World Wide Web, portable cell phones and digital watches. (Sorry, I couldn’t remember back 12 years well enough to think of a really good third option. Feel free to supply a better example.)

Here’s to you, Danielle, old lady that you are.
