So the other day it was my brother's birthday and I announced to the kids that we should call and wish him a Happy Birthday. This is how the conversation went with my 4-year-old:
Me: Ok kids, let's call Uncle Jeff and you can sing "Happy Birthday" to him.
My son: Yay! Ok! Who's Uncle Jeff?
Me: You know, the guy who always buys you the cool superhero gifts for Christmas and your birthday.
My son: Oh, my birthday. What is Uncle Jeff buying me for my birthday?
Me: I don't know. But it's not about you right now, it's about Uncle Jeff.
My son: Why?
Me: Because it's his birthday.
My son: When?
My son: When is it my birthday?
Me: Not for a few more months.
My son: Aww, come on!
