Happy Birthday Little Miss Liar Fire Pants
Imagine my surprise when I picked up AK at school the other day and she is wearing a Birthday crown and her friends are all waving her off with birthday wishes.
When we got to the car I said, "Hey AK, why is everyone wishing you a Happy Birthday?"
AK: Oh, I told everyone it was my birthday to make the day more fun.
Moi: Um, but your birthday was last month.
AK: Well, today is my birthday for this month.
Moi: Sweetie, it just doesn't work like that. You can't just decide to have a birthday on any old day.
AK: But I got to be line leader and pass out pencils and they sang to me, it was so fun.
Baffled, I really can't blame her, I mean she got to be line leader AND pass out pencils! Plus she has a summer birthday, which means she misses out on the school birthday experience. What I can't figure out is how she convinced everyone that today was her birthday when the forms I filled out all have a different date. This girl needs to be a salesman, she can get anyone to believe anything.
**Up until last year, anytime Mr. Boy thought someone was lying he would call them, "Liar Fire Pants" instead of Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. It made me chuckle every time and the phrase has stuck.
