Basic Math

Conversation between Kirstyn and I today...

Me: Do you know what tomorrow is?

K: Um, YES (eyes wide and lit up)... It's my Happy Birthday!

Me: How old are you going to be?

K: Five and a half!

Me: No, just 5.

K: Four and a half plus one is Five and a half!

Me: Tomorrow you turn Five, then on Brother's Birthday in May, you turn Five and a Half.

K: OHHHH, does that mean James will be One and a Half tomorrow on my Happy Birthday?

Me: Yes! So how old are you going to be tomorrow?

K: Five and a Half!

I didn't even respond this time because Mimi was on the phone asking to talk to Kirstyn. Then, Kirstyn had the same conversation with Mimi. Mimi is always looking for a good excuse to go to Big Lots, so my guess is that James will be getting a Half Birthday present tomorrow when Kirstyn gets her presents! I am totally okay with that because I used to get presents on my sister's birthday in April (I still do most years!) because my sister got presents on my Birthday (never mind that my Birthday is Christmas Day).

Okay, so if you ask Kirstyn tomorrow how old she is, my fingers are crossed that she will answer 5. Guess we will see.

P.S. My posts may be a little sporadic this week since we are in Birthday Mode around here! Kirstyn and I are about to make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins for her Birthday Breakfast tomorrow so that we can put some candles in one in the morning (or 5 and a half of them!)

How funny is that, that we have 2 kids that are the same age? Lily's going to be 5 on November 20. She's so excited because all her party stuff came in the mail today.

I hope Kirsten has a great birthday!

I love her reasoning - she's 4 1/2 now, so add one more and she's 5 1/2! Makes sense. :o)

Happy birthday, Kirstyn!

Hi Natalie! Thank you so much. I'm sure I'll be hitting you up with lots of questions. :) Are you doing flex or core?

So cute!! I love little kids logic. It really makes more since when you think about it. And I think you need to share your recipe. Those muffins sound amazing!
