When is a birthday not a birthdayMy girls are doggedly determined to make the new baby's entrance into the world something to celebrate. To that end, they're already planning the party.
"Mom, can we have the baby's birthday party a few days early? Maybe in April instead of May?"
"Well, we have to wait until the baby is born before there's a birthday. The day it's born IS the birthday."
Undaunted, they persisted.
"Then we'll have to have the birthday a few days after it comes. You don't want to be all tired and bleedy and stuff on the day of the birthday, do you? You need to be able to enjoy it too!"
Thoughtful, sure, but I don't think they're really grasping the whole concept of Birth Day!
