Happy Birthday

Katie has a birthday this week. She'll be 11. Last year we tried to convince her that she was on a downhill slide because she had hit the double digits. She wasn't buying it.


This year, however, she's worried. Why?


Because she can no longer has enough fingers to count her age.

Well, goodness, that's what toes are for. Although I still find it difficult to hold them all up at one time when someone asks my age.

LOL,
Yes that's what toes are for and why they should have nail polish on them.

Happy Birthday, Katie!

Now, I'm not recommending it for your kid, but if you hold a beer in each hand, you can count to twelve, at least.

Since we're all offering suggestions on counting, I should mention that if she learns to count in binary, she can use her fingers to count to 1023.

Cynthia: Ha! You are soooo helpful.

And Splineguy, you are soooo messed up, man. Messed up!

Ah yes, the ritual cutting off of the fingers. They grow up so fast!

Aaaw. Happy (belated by now) Birthday to Katie!!
It's okay Katie. Someday you'll want to stop counting, so you need not worry about those fingers anymore :)
