If you’d have told me 10 years ago that I’d have two kids both born in the month of September, I very likely would’ve punched you square in the face and un-Friended you on Facebook (if Facebook had existed). I’m serious. But here I am, ten years later, and I’ve had to change my whole world view because that’s exactly what happened …two of my kids were born in September.
I have never been a fan of September born people, but I love my two little Septemberians (I’m assuming that’s what you call folks born in September). And the good news about having two of your children with birthdays so close together, you get to throw a combined party and get all that gathering of family out of the way in one shot.
One of the traditional songs my family sings at birthday parties is “Happy Birthday” and while of I have fond memories of my mother and my aunts taking the high notes while Uncles sang bass, and grandma beat-boxed (we would’ve dominated as a family a capella act on The Sing-Off, btw …recaps of my favorite show at spunkybean), it’s entirely possible we sounded more like we do in the videos below.
I know at least one person who hopes the new “screaming” v. “singing” doesn’t catch on. And I’m sure the “screaming” was a one-time thing, right? Cuz I know kids …they hate screaming and laughing.
Hard to believe my youngest is 5. Enjoy this little-known birthday song and let me know if you need to know where to send gifts.
