So, I just came from a heated discussion regarding listing your kid's age in months vs. years. There appear to be a lot of moms who appear to have a stroke when they hear someone say a child is 24 months instead of 2. There was a mom discussing potty training and she described her kid as being "24 months".
To me...unless it's like "My kid is 157 months old..." I think you can probably let it slide. Really, what is the difference? When you're discussing developmental stages, there is a big difference between a kid who is just this month turning 2years old and a kid who is almost 3 and it's easier to say "She's 26 mos" and saying "She turned 2 two months ago". So I think there's a relevance in listing the number of months a child is.
I've noticed many moms vehemently defending that past one year of age (some do two years), you should only ever use years and if you say your kid's age in months you are an evil evil person who must be stopped. One mom even said "You say she's 24 months like she's some kind of object" Which...I find funny on a number of levels, including the assumption that people describe inaminate objects on the basis of how many months old they are. ("Please, make yourself at home! Have a seat on my 24 month old sofa" lol)
So, it's probably pretty clear how I feel about the whole thing, what are your thoughts?
