Nina Thinks of Birthdays

As it is every day, Nina said before going to bed...

"It's my birthday today! yay!"

"No Nina, it is not your birthday today" I said

"Yes" she says with a whine, "Yes it is!"

"No sweetie" I continue, "Not today, but you will have a birthday in 2 weeks."

She makes a defeated face.

"You know, when it is finally your birthday, you will be four and we will have a party for you. Everyone will sing, "Happy birthday sweet Nina...""

"Oh yes! Yes! Sing happy birthday to Nina! Mommy! Good idea! Good idea!"

A good idea indeed. The first birthday celebration of her life!
