Default JJ turned two today, BUT....

...he HATES the "Happy Birthday" song! He cries and says "No, no, no" every time he hears it!!!! I guess we need to find something else to sing that he likes better.

Two years flew by... I can't believe it's been that long since I was in the hospital just getting to know this little person and wondering how he would grow. Now he's so busy and full of life and he has brought us so much joy - more than we could ever have imagined - and inspired me to take all kinds of directions in my life I would not have done without him. I know I am supposed to be the one giving him things, but he's given me more than I'll ever give back to him.

lol That is so weird. Why does he hate it? Have you tried it in other languages (if you know any)?

Happy Birthday to him!

yes I did actually... he knows the happy birthday song and hates it just as much in French, Spanish or German. There is another birthday song I know in Spanish which is probably what we'll use.

Happy birthday JJ!!

Connor hates it too, and I have no idea why! He put his hands over his ears when we sang at Oliver's birthday party a couple weeks ago and at my niece's birthday in April.

Who knows what goes on in their little minds? That's cute though.

Happy birthday, JJ!

Happy birthday JJ!

My middle son hated all singing. So we'd whisper-sing the birthday song.

My niece HATED that song for the first 3 years of her life. Anytime we had a family birthday and it was time to sing, her mom would have to take her out of the room or else she'd start crying.

Honestly if you think about it, it's kind of a dreary sounding song, especially when you've got a room full of mostly tone deaf people singing it.

Sing him the Beatles version:

The years really do go fast when they're little...til they get to be teenagers, then time drags.

Happy Birthday, JJ!

RCW, I like the quote in your sig.

JJ had his last day at daycare - it only goes up to their 2nd birthday - and I am waiting to see if he will be accepted into the university centre or if not for pre-school to start, so he'll be at home with me for the next month and a half before my classes start (except when my mama takes him.)

Happy Birthday to Harry's "brother from another mother"! I hope you have a great time celebrating. I cannot believe our guys are two.

You could sing, "Sto Lat." It's the Polish birthday/occasion song.

Add me to the list of moms whose sons hated that song. He outgrew it, though. He'll be 10 this Sunday and still can't tell me why it bothered him so.

Happy Birthday JJ!

What about singing "For he's a jolly good fellow" IDK - it's kind of celebratory! My DS loves the Happy Birthday song - he makes me sing to everyone and everything...Happy Birthday Cars, Happy Birthday Nemo etc etc
