I overheard this discussion between three of my kids yesterday:
C: Hey! Why is the year 2010? I thought it was 2009.
E: Don't you remember, C? On New Year's Eve the year changed. We moved ahead another year.
C: Oh yeah...I stayed up really late that night and watched this shiny ball fall and then I saw lights that said 2010...then all these people were kissing! Ugh!
R: You know, C, you're really not supposed to be watching that kind of stuff. It's not good for you.
