We went to the hypermarket yesterday, to do our weekly shopping. As I was picking up some doughnuts at the bakery section, I could hear a strain of “Happy Birthday to U” being sung in one of the lanes by some kids.
Smiling, I walked towards the sound of music to see who was singing it. The voices were gaining in momentum at every step I took & a sense of familiarity overcame me. I quickly turned the corner and came upon 2 children ……my own flesh & blood, belting out the Happy Birthday song.
Kids of all ages were rushing towards the area to catch a slice of the action.
Parents of these kids & other people were grinning at each other in amusement.
And my kids……they were standing in front of a yummlicious Birthday Cake on the display stand and giving it the respect it deserved.
