One of the best things about being 4 is that you’re not above singing “Happy Birthday” to yourself.
And since this family is half Polish/Lithuanian, we sing “Happy Birthday” in more than one language.
He’s spent the past few minutes mutilating the Polish song “Sto Lat.”
I don’t know how to spell the correct version, though I have learned to sing the song. Little Brother knows the tune but he still mangles the words: “Sto lat, sto lat, gee a, gee a, gee a mom! Sto lat, sto lat, gee a, gee a, gee a mom! Yes, a dot, yes, a dot, gee a, gee a, gee a mom! Yes, gee a mom!”
His enthusiasm makes up for his bad pronunciation. Sto lat, Little Brother!
