Today is my sweet Amanda's birthday! Happy Birthday, darling.
This morning when Luke got up I asked him did he know why this was a special day. He didn't, so I called him close promising to tell him the secret.
Then I whispered, "Today is Mommy's birthday. Tell her "Happy Birthday, Mommy."
Amanda was standing in the hall ironing something. Luke leaned into the hallway and said, "Happy Birthday, Mommy!"
"Thank you," Mommy smiled.
Luke turned around to me with glee, "She smiled at me, Daddy!"
"Wow, she did?" I said.
"Yeah, I saw her teeeeeth!"
