"Mom, is this my 'bretend' (pretend) birthday or my real birthday?"
Advancing in age means little to my Ollie. It's all about the party. He has come up with a way to define the difference:
- Anniversary of the day he "came out of my tummy" - Birthday
- Day all festivities happen and the piñata is slaughtered - '"Bretend Birthday"
This little mite - despite his meager 5 years - knows a thing or two about a Birthdays. As he told an elderly man at the library last week, "I'll be 5 in two weeks - but my Mom DID NOT get to choose the day I came out of her tummy - the GALAXY did."
Nailed it. Library dude is still googling "philosophy on galaxies" but I TOTALLY knew what he was talking about.
This year of Ollie's life is all about:
- swim, bike, run
- laying future plans
Happy 'bretend' birthday my sweet.
