Sorry, Dear, MLK, jr Day is Not That Kind-of Holiday...

Julianna to me: Hey, Mom....where are all of our treats? You know our presents...
Me: Why was I supposed to get you presents?
J: Uh! It is a HOLIDAY! And on holidays you are supposed to celebrate and feast!
Me: Sweetheart, I don't not buy presents in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.s birthday...We honor him by praying for peace and loving people no matter how they look.
J: it is not like Christmas or Valentine's Day?
Me: Nope, sorry.
J: Well can we make dessert for tonight, to celebrate not going to school?
Me: Sure!

Ask her what she's getting me for the month of February. Since no one else shares the month for their birthday, it's all mine. All 29 days this year.

Too cute! I guess the "holidays" like that are a bit confusing.
