Wee Three: It said on the news that it's Nelson Mandela's birthday!
Me: (trying not to poke mascara directly into an eyeball) Yep. He's 95 today! It's pretty amazing!
Wee Three: They said he was in the hospital... I sure wouldn't want to be in the hospital for MY birthday...
Me: Nope, that would be pretty crummy, all right.
The Wee One thought for a minute, and then looked at me with a deeply worried expression.
Wee Three: Do you think they'll at least give him a CUPCAKE or something??!!
Oh, my dear... that wouldn't even touch upon repaying him for all he's done for us...
