Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Mom!
Happy Birthday to you!

In our fambly, on somebody's birthday, we call them up and sing "Happy Birthday." It's best if we can call early in the morning. Nobody sings very well in our fambly, except for maybe Mr Karate, so the more off-key the song is, the better. And it's against the rules to leave the song for the generic answering machine guy to deliver.

So Mom's gonna be yakking on the phone after day hunting, and she won't get anything useful done. Works for me. I will take advantage and sit near her and get scritches.


update: Mom is squeeing because Monty's KidBean just called and sang her the Happy Birthday song! What a sweet kid!

(p.s. Mom is fifty-something. I think that means she is older than dirt. Well, maybe not that old... maybe older than kitty litter.)

Happy Birthday from Zoolatry... where the "bean" is way, way, way older than dirt! Cause when you're "way" there you can have your cake and eat it, too.
Enjoy the day.

Happy Birthday, Lynne!

My mommy giggled at your b-day ritual. She apparently couldn't sing the song when she was a kid-bean and sang "Hat day you-you." Needless to say, her mom calls and sings that to her every year (and vice versa).

Enjoy your special day!

Camp Stanhope Happenings said...

We have that same ritual at our house, and the singing abilities vary GREATLY!!! Happy Birthday!!!
