There was a double birthday celebration at the inlaws at the weekend. Grandma H turned a grand old 76 and one of Little Zs cousins turned 6. So there was 2 cakes, lots of party food and Little Zs favourite song in the whole wide world; the Happy Birthday song.
His face was a little picture of excitement as he saw two birthday cakes being brought out with candles and prepared himself.
Except, he realised, there was something not quite right.
No one was singing to him and the words in the song didn’t include “Happy Birthday dear Little Z”. Huh.
He watched on slightly perplexed as the song was sing to other people and not him.
All ended well though as the candles on the cake were lit up again and the Happy Birthday song was sung to him four times!
I’m pretty sure he could have gone longer.
(Sorry the quality is slightly rubbish!)
