The Phone Call

The month of March is a busy one. For us, there are plenty of birthdays to celebrate - my father-in-law, my brother, my aunt, and A.R all have birthdays this month. Yesterday, it was my brother's birthday, and I thought it would be nice to give him a call before the boys went to school. When I told J.P it was his uncle's birthday, he immediately asked if his uncle was going to have a party. I replied that Uncle A. would have one on the weekend. If there is one thing you should know about J.P is that he loves birthday parties. In fact, any of kind of celebration! I also mentioned that we'd celebrate his grandpa's 70th birthday on Saturday.  He was very excited, and urged me to make the phone call to his uncle. I picked up the phone, and called but discovered my brother wasn't home - he probably left for work early so I decided to leave a message on his voice mail. I greeted my brother with birthday wishes then told A.R to do the same.

"Hi. Happy birthday Uncle A.! I love you."

I handed the phone to J.P. He took the receiver, and put it to his ear; he looked so grown up.

"Uh, uh...happy birthday Papa!" ( the boys call their grandpa "Papa")

Beep!  And he hangs up.

My mouth dropped open. Didn't he just asked me to call his uncle? A.R roared with laughter. So much for birthday greetings. Looks like we'll have to make another call.

Next year, I think I'll just send my brother a birthday card.
