Partially related: I told my friend about our template sharing from before and he said something like "Neat, it's like you're now bros with miscarriage."
Haha xD ved jeg sgu ikke.. Bare fordi du har angivet på din profil at du kommer fra Lolland, så tænkte jeg lige det kunne være sjovt at pisse dig lidt af ved at spørge om du havde fået en traktor.
There is a reason why newborns' ages are referred to in months rather than years -- and it has to do with development.
The largest amount of growth (relatively speaking) occurs in the first 5 years of a human's life. The changes that take place between 1 and 2, 2 and 3, and certainly 1 and 3, are absolutely enormous. So, instead, parents show the child's age in months.
The child isn't 2 years old, it's 28 months old (yes, I know that 2 years is 24 months, there is a reason I chose 28).
Regardless, it has to do with the massive rate of development that occurs in the first 5 years of life -- that's why we refer to their ages in terms of months rather than years.
I understand this, as I have a young kid. I did the whole month thing with my daughter up until 18 months.... she's now almost 2, I couldn't give a **** how many months old she is now, almost 2 is fine.
I was just ranting about this last night. How people measure their kid's age with months even after 12 months old. Once they hit 12, in my eyes that's when you start using years.
I hate whenever news and media use months to make a kid sound younger and make a person look guiltier. Like for example say they're trying to exaggerate some situation with a parent and a child, and they're trying to get the parent in trouble for some questionable thing they did, and they say like 36 months instead of 3 years just to make them sound younger.
They also do it on the show Bet on Your Baby too.
Although technically I'm pretty sure clothing sizes go up to 34 months or so before it starts in years.
Well, there is a really big difference in development all around between 1 year and 1 year and a few months. So I can understand wanting to use fractions of years. And in many ways in math, mixed fractions are more impractical to use, so maaayyyybe that has something to do with it.
But I think it would probably be best to just use mixed fractions. It isn't like they need to add or multiply the ages of their children. So probably best would be like 1 year, 4 months.
Makes me feel a bit like I should visit the furry board. It took a few minutes to respond because I kept looking at it and forgetting what I was writing about.
Oh yeah my S&W folder is fairly big too, took a while to decide on which pic to use as well.
