I've been trying to teach Julia about how old she is. People ask how old she is and she doesn't seem to know the answer. So I've been telling her about birthdays (birthday parties she TOTALLY is down with) but the AGE and BIRTHDAY MEANING doesn't seem to sink in.
I say "You are two. You are going to be three."
She say "I'm not two, I'm JULIA."
She puts her hands on her hips and says it defiantly. She is ageless. She is not DEFINED by age.
She is Julia.
Maybe I should be more like this.
