    What is wrong with this sentence?

    I have two boys, ages six and four, that keep me very busy.

    Re: What is wrong with this sentence?

    I would write "aged" instead of "ages."

    Some people object to the use of "that" instead of "who" when referring to people.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
