I was busy working in the kitchen, but I stopped and looked at my daughter. “Because we go by the calendar,” I answered.
“But how do you know it’s my birthday?”
“We just talked about the calendar in our school work yesterday. Don’t you remember? The months and the days… ”
“Yes, but how do you know when it’s MY birthday?”
Clearly we were not on the same wave length. How else would I know it was her birthday? Sometimes it takes a kid to understand a kid I guess, because her sister walked in and exclaimed, “Because that’s the day you were born!”
“Ooooooh!” The light came on and she went on her merry way.
Me? I was left standing there with my mouth open! Birth Day. Birthday? 🙂
