Question on the parsha

In this weeks parsha, Sarah (Why didn't Sarah spell her name "Sarra"?) overhears that will have a baby, laughs and says her husband is old. When Hashem repeated the story to Avraham, he changed the story slightly and said that she said the she is old. I remember learning back in the day that the reason Hashem was able to change around Sarah's words were for Shalom Bayit purposes. So that Avraham wouldn't get mad at Sarah.
My question is, didn't Avraham know that he was old, I joke around sometimes that my Ayshet Chayil is old(er than me) and she isn't close to 100 years old. Avraham and Sarah had been married for many many years at this point, I'm sure it came up in conversation that they weren't spring chickens anymore. Is there any other explanation given as to why Hashem changed around Sarah's words?

Save the year!

For all of you who like to plan in advance... in 12 years is Sruli's Bar Mitzvah followed by Chaya's Bat Mitzvah 6 months later. Things may change, but at this point Sruli likes crayons, blocks, and cars...Chaya likes taking long naps
Have a great Shabbat :)
(yes, 2 weeks is a long time between posts)
