Explaining Birthdays to 2 year olds is a bit tough:
I went into Ché's room yesterday morning, and when I pulled him out of his bed I said:
"Can I please have a hug," Momma
"It's Momma's birthday, can I please have a hug," Momma
"Yes," Ché, "Happy, Birthday, Momma."
"Thank you Ché! I love you," Momma
"Momma, birthday,?" Ché
"Yes, today is Momma's birthday," Momma
"Ché, birthday?" Momma
I then tried explaining birthdays and he got it somewhat, but oye was he confused at the end of the night because we told him to tell Grandpa "Happy Birthday," as his birthday is today.
I know it will sort itself out, but boy are birthdays hard to explain to a 2 year old.
All in all though I had a great birthday. We went to dinner with my family and Mike's family, and then everyone came over for cake and I did receive some very nice presents.
