The answer is: "To make us feel OLD"

The question: "Why do we have children?"

My kids' homeschool drama group is rehearsing "Our Town" -- so I quickly put it on our Netflix queue.

"We'll watch both of them," I said, "the William Holden film and the live version with Paul Newman."

Annie (age 19): Paul Newman was an actor?

Joe (age 12): NO WAY! The Salad Dressing Dude? Really?

Mom (age nevermind) :::deep sigh, tinged with a melancholy disbelief:::

The list of movies now in our queue: Hud, Cool Hand Luke, The Hustler and The Young Philadelphians.
