If you are five-turning-six your birthday is a big thing. BIG. If you are almost older than dirt it is much less so. In the fall we perused the birthday chart to talk about ourselves and become familiar with the months of the year and various other things. Someone noticed that there were no birthdays in June and I casually mentioned that mine was and that seemed to be the end of the conversation. Until Wednesday. Wednesday was June 1st and one of the Team Awesome members exclaimed that it was my birthday and they began to sing with huge smiles and gusto, proud that they could bestow on me this special gift despite my protestations. I explained that it was not my birthday and the interrogation began, "Well when is it? You said it was in June. How come you don't have a birthday cupcake on the calendar? When is it Mrs. Bowden?" and it continued for most of the day. So I relented. For the first time ever I put up a birthday cupcake with my name on it on the calendar and they were so thrilled and excited for me that I couldn't help but smile and wonder why I hadn't done it sooner. Guess I'll have to rummage around for some cupcakes so we can celebrate in style. :-)
