The Happiness Habit


"Okay, so Mama? So we get to do my birthday at home and at school and at my Saturday party? All of those times?"

"Yep."

"Why do I get to have three birthday times?"

"Celebrating is important. It's good to take any opportunity to do happy things. We should celebrate something everyday."

"Celebrate is not on my opposability chart."

"Responsibility chart."

"Yeah, the pose-ability chart."

"We should put Celebrate on there. That's a great idea."

"So can we put that on there and take off Brush Your Teeth?"

"No."

Happy Birthday Bob.

    And I love what your mom is teaching you: seize any opportunity for celebration.

    We live the same way here, esepcially with birthdays! Because birthdays celebrate SO VERY MUCH.

    Happy birthday, wonderful Bob.

    You make so many people happy.

  12. Hi Bob, it's me, the other Cheryl.

    I'm so late today, you're probably already in bed. Dagnabit! Happy Birthday little one. Let the celebrating begin.

    Did you hear that? Yep. You're right. That was my off-key rendition of Happy Birthday to You.

    Woohoo, you big boy. Two parties down and one to go? That's the way to do it, Bob. Ce-le-brate Bob times, c'mon! Let's get that party started...
    (oh, sorry)
    Oh, and Bob? Tell your mom that your opposibility chart is VERY impressive, and that I would not bear up under that heavy load. I don't make my bed. But enough about me. I want to hear about presents and cake!
