Lucky Me

“Hey, Miles, guess what?”

My sleepy four year old rubs his eyes and lifts his arms to be picked up. “What Mama?”

“Today is my birthday!”

“Your birthday? Well, I already knowed that Mama. Dada told me about that yesterday

“Oh. Well, give me my birthday hug and kiss then.”

“No.”

“No?”

“For your birthday you can lay by me on the couch and watch Thomas. That is your good birthday.”

“Laying on the couch and watching Thomas kind of sounds like how you like to spend your morning.”

“Yeah. But it is for your birthday. ”

(pause)

“And, Mama? For your birthday, maybe you should make some red velvet cupcakes for me.”

(Thomas videos and the chance to make my own cake? What more could I ask for?)
