Squink: Mommy, I think you can make your birthday a different way.

Me: What kind of way should it be?

Squink: I say December 50.

Squink: Yes it can, I'll make a machine and it's the law.

Squink just handed me a book and asked "Will you read me the copyright?"

I replied by reading "Copyright two-thousand and two-thousand and six; Kidsbooks LLC"

At this point he interrupts me and says:  "
No, I want to know how old it is?"
