    That kid's birthday in on 31st December and today is 1st January [As per the question]
    So that kid was 7 day-before-yesterday [30th December of last year]
    He became 8 yesterday [31st December of last year]
    He will become 9 this year [31st December of this year]
    And 10 by next year [31st December of next year]
