Happy Birthday Mom!

”Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Mom
Happy Birthday to you -
and many more!

My Mom, Dorothy, is celebrating her 86th birthday today!

The day after her birthday, Mom usually begins saying that she is in her "next year". For example, tomorrow, she will say "I'm in my 87th year now!" Sometimes, she says the number for the "next year" often enough that she begins adding an additional year by mistake. But the other day she said "Well, I'm almost 90 now!" Uh oh... this could get interesting in a hurry!

Happy birthday to your mum, do people call her Dot?
I forget my age all the time, just yesterday in fact, I thought I was 37, Mr Brown gave me the bad news!

Hi DMM -
Yes they do. I think she prefers Dorothy, Dottie or Dot - but in that order!

So why were you dismayed to be reminded you are 29???

My mum's name is Rose, but we affectionately call her the OB (Old Bag)- stems from em talking to my sister on the 'phone one day and she asked if I would like to speak to mum,and I said "yeah, but the old bag on the 'phone", and this terribly English voice said " You'll find that The Old Bag is on the extension".... whoops ;o)
