Finn's birthday is in a couple of weeks. He was having his afternoon snack today and he said to me, Mama, do you know someone special who is having a birthday soon?
Me: I sure do know someone special who is having his birthday soon!
Finn: Yeah, his name is Martin.
Me: Huh? Who?
Finn: Martin. He was a really good man who did a lot of really good things for people and his birthday is next week.
Me: Oh, Martin Luther King. Yes, he was a really good man. Did you know you were supposed to be born on Martin's same birthday but you slept in another 5 days?
Niamh: Yeah, I knew that. That's why when Finn was in your tummy I thought you were going to name him Martin Luther King.
Me: Yep, but we thought that might be a little weird.
