Trickery

“Good morning birthday girl.”
(sleepy smiles)
“How old are you today?”
“Three.”
“No, you’re four.”
“No.”
“Are you one?”
“No.”
“Are you two?”
“No.”
“Are you three?”
“Yes.”
“No you’re not. You’re four today!”
“Are you tricking me? I’m three!”
“Don’t you want to be four? Four is fun!”
“Three is fun. You’re tricking me. I’m not four. No one has sung happy birthday to me.”
“Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear buttercup. Happy birthday to you.”
(smiles coyly) “I haven’t had cake yet.”
“You’ll have cake at daycare! Hey do you want to open your presents?”
“YES!!!”
“How old are you?”
(holds up four fingers)
“Ok let’s go!”
