    Can't you easily guess?

    I'm not telling him.... I would not want to burst or flatten his ego. Self satisfaction is all I need

    The story behind it....

    Every year when Noah gets older I swear the next day- if he is in trouble he will say "You're going on 17 years old!" Even though his 16th birthday was the day before.

    So silly but this weekend he asked me if I wanted to finish his burger he ate for lunch, I told him it was too early for me to eat lunch. It was 10:05 am. He said, "It's going on 11 o'clock". I said, "um no, it's only 10!" He said yes, but it's going on 11.... so on and so forth. I explained to him that going on 11 meant it was almost 11. He says if it is almost 11 then he would just say "it's 11" and not say "going on 11". *sigh* *SMH*

    I just think it's quite cute actually-- funny how each of us interpret things differently! However, when the day comes for me to settle this once and for all.... I got backup!

    I also will be sure to tell me kids the proper use of the dialogue.

    @bullmama
    I agree with everyone else, to me it's means "almost".
    But technically, he's right. If it's past 10, "it's going on 11".

    So when I hear people say "Dave Mckenzie is 50 going on 12" it means Dave McKenzie is almost 12 right?

    Does it mean anytime after 10 o'clock or after their 15th birthday (like it could be 10:05 or 15 and 1 day old) or does it mean it's almost 11 o'clock or almost 16 years old?

    I believe it means it is "going to be". Going on 10 o'clock means it is almost 10. Going on 16 means almost 16 or acts like 16. Its like saying your 10 year old kid is going on 20.... Means your 10 year old is growing so fast he acts as if he is already an adult

    Your right Lisa, it means almost.
