A Conversation with Charlie (Age 4, still) About Aging

HIM: WHEN! WHEN! When will I turn fiiiiive?!
ME: Oh it's going to be soon. I know it's hard to wait.
HIM: Am I five NOW?
ME: No. Here's what you do. Today is November 1st. Your birthday is November 14th. So it's thirteen more days. Then you're five.
HIM: How many is thirteen?
ME: More than twelve, less than fourteen.
HIM: I want to turn FIVE! I don't want to wait SIXTY ONE YEARS!

I looked at Charlie's Amazon wish list but he hasn't been updating it recently...I was expecting more robots and dangerous animals...
