Evelyn: *opens eyes* Why isn't it my birthday today?
Me: I know right?! Where the presents at?
Evelyn: Well I'm only getting out of bed on my birthday.
Me: So you're going to stay in bed for 364 days of the year?
Evelyn: Yep. When you ring school to tell them why I'm not coming in, you can tell them why.
Me: Well, I think it's a pretty good reason but I don think school would agree.
Evelyn: They will, Mummy. How will you know if you don't try?
Me: Again, you make a good point, but I'm not calling up your school to say, "I'm sorry, Evelyn isn't coming in today because it isn't her birthday."
*we both collapse in giggles* 😊
