Birthday story.

Yesterday, Hockey Boy asked Vivian, "Whose birthday is it today?"

She answered softly, "Will's birthday."

"Thats right! How old am I?"

Long pause. "Fourteen," replied Vivian in her quiet little voice.

"No, Silly. You're fourteen. How old am I?"

Vivian began to count slowly. "Fifteen... Sixteen... Seventeen..."

"Yes!" Hockey Boy told her. "Now will you sing to me?"

"Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to Will," Vivian sang quietly.

We all waited for the last phrase of the song, but Vivian was silent.

Finally, Hockey Boy asked her, "What comes next, Vivi?"

"Eighteen," was her reply.

She is absolutely adorable.

Thank you for your ideas on the cabinet. I'll have to post about it, when we finally get it all done.
