Abby Four De July.............

I listen to the radio a lot and every time the commercials came on yesterday my dd Abby(4)would get real quiet. By last evening she just seemed totally delighted with everything and was giddy with happiness. I thought maybe she was caught up in the excitement of our picnic with the family and friends and the anticipation of the fireworks. She and I were sitting on a chair drinking some ice water when a commercial came on the radio and she started laughing really hard. I asked her what she was laughing at and she said today is my birthday and I said no, it's not your birthday and she said yes and I asked her why on earth she thought it was her birthday and she said because "he say Abby Four de July". It took me a minute to realize that she was talking about the commercials on the radio. All day she had been hearing "Abby Four de July" instead of "Happy Fourth of July".
