Over breakfast this morning, my almost-two year old asked, “Mummy, when is my birthday?”
“Well, your birthday is next Monday but we’ll be celebrating this Sunday,” I said.
“Do you know where we’ll be celebrating?”
She answered earnestly with the name of the venue. I was surprised she still remembered since she’s only been there once.
“And all your friends are coming,” I exclaimed. “Do you know who will be there?”
“Beanie, Maia, Pakka, Carter, Hunter, Uncle Chris, Auntie Beverly, Sophie, Mia, Bake, Kai……. All YOUR friends!”
She went on with a grin on her face and I had to correct her before she added, “All MY friends!”
My heart melted and I could only think of two things:
(1) It’s so cute she thinks Uncle Chris and Auntie Beverly are her friends
(2) Who the hell is Pakka?
