Happy Un-birthday!

"They gave it to me — for an un-birthday present."
"I beg your pardon?" Alice said with a puzzled air.
"I’m not offended," said Humpty Dumpty.
"I mean, what is an un-birthday present?"
"A present given when it isn’t your birthday, of course."
Alice considered a little. "I like birthday presents best," she said at last.
"You don’t know what you’re talking about!" cried Humpty Dumpty. "How many days are there in a year?"
"Three hundred and sixty-five," said Alice.
"And how many birthdays have you?"
"And if you take one from three hundred and sixty-five, what remains?"
"Three hundred and sixty-four, of course."

Well, we are having a busy birthday/unbirthday weekend around these parts. My husband and my oldest share a birthday on Monday, and my baby, Vivian, turns two on Tuesday. So in addition to the regular busy-ness of basketball, soccer, and choir performances, this weekend has also featured an 11-year-old slumber party and a family gathering to celebrate the multitude of early-March birthdays. Good times!
Happy Sunday,
