When it is your birthday, and you are two, your room is full of balloons when you wake up, because magic.
When it is your birthday, and you are two, your oatmeal is pink.
You get to open all the presents in the house, because they are all for you, because it is your birthday and you are two.
You get to help make your own birthday cake and yes, whatever, taste-test the flour all you like. It's not every day you turn two.
And go ahead and lick the bowl, because salmonella can't touch you when it's your birthday.
And drink from the birthday cup
and have hash browns and grapes and 'fancy cheese' for lunch, because it is your birthday and you are two.
And there are two candles on your cake, because you are two.
And the whole cake is yours, because it is your birthday, so lick all the icing off first, if you want.
And then watch The Jungle Book and make elephant sounds. You are very good at them now, because you are two.
And then have a bath and brush your teeth and read Llama Llama and go to bed, because some things still have to be done, even though it is your birthday, and you are two.
