Here’s a secret I am going to share. A silly one. Der & I buy cakes to celebrate x.silly‘s birthday every year. It has been something that we have been doing ever since Der gifted me with x.silly. I think I shared before, but I can’t find any blog post on it. And yup, we love being silly like that.

So this year, it is the same. I bought a cake and Der happened to give me a ride home from the train station that day with the kids in tow. Jerry spied my bag cautiously..

Jerry (J): Mummy, what are you holding?
Mummy (M): It’s a cake for x.silly.
J: Why you buy a cake? Why you never buy me a donut?
M: It’s x.silly birthday! So I bought him a cake. Later when we reach home, we celebrate x.silly’s birthday ok?
J: It’s x.silly birthday ah. You buy him a cake ah..
M: Yes. Today is x.silly’s birthday. We’ll sing Happy Birthday to him later ok? Then we can blow the candles and eat the cake.
J: But mummy, x.silly is not…… real.
M: *taken aback by his reply* I know, but it’s ok. X.silly have a birthday and we can still help him celebrate right?
J: Hmmm… OK.
[5 seconds pause later]
J: Mummy, but x.silly got no mouth!! (to eat the cake).

I.. cannot believe my 3.5yo said that. And that he actually challenged me with his thoughts and what he thinks is correct. Amazing. He is really growing up huh. Nonetheless, he’s a great sport and went along with the celebrations any way.

Do you have anything silly to share with your other half? For me, its one of the little things that keeps the relationship going, or how we add sparks to our otherwise mundane lives. If you don’t mind, leave me a comment and share and maybe I can learn from you too!

I haven’t been blogging as often all week, but I’m struggling with solo parenting all week – the husband’s off to reservist, and my family is off to Japan without me. Be a little patience and I promise more posts coming up! I have so much to say, but can’t find time to sit in from of my laptop.
