Hap-da Birday To You! (cha-cha-cha)

No, in answer to your question. It is not Sage's birthday again. Having her once was quite enough, thank you very much.

She and Sawyer have been playing Birthday. They put party hats on themselves or other assorted creatures (a bear, a stuffed bat ray, a tricycle). They gather "gifts" which are usually Sage's Hello Kitty case and some matchbox containers filled with whatever they can cram in.

There can be guests: Her Cabbage Patch doll, Sawyer's stuffed Little Einstein's Rocket.

Sage makes a "cake:" a small tupperware container with play food corn, a strawberry, a chicken leg, and a block or two. Then she will bring it to you, sing "Hap-da Birday to Mommy" and then she will blow out the "candles."

Or, more likely, she'll sing "Hap-da Birday to meeeeee. Cha-cha-cha!"

This can go on for an hour. I'm amazed, watching their little minds come up with the whole scenario. Sawyer says he's having a Monster Truck part. Sage has, of course, a Hello Kitty theme.

They are so close, these kids. I love that they involve each other in this game. Tonight, when Sawyer said the party was over, Sage asked him to PLEASE come back. And he was all "Alright, we can still have our party."

Think of all the time and money I could save if this would REALLY satisfy them when there actual birthday comes around again.

Yeah, I don't think so either.
