Whose Birthday's Coming Up?

About ten times a day we engage in some variation of the following conversation:

Violet: Whose birthday's coming up?

Me: Violet's birthday!

Violet: Three years old! Chocolate cake!

And then she sings happy birthday. Chocolate cake and the spunk to sing happy birthday to yourself. Pretty much all you need to make every birthday a success from three to ninety-three.
