Allegra: Ruby, do you know what day it is today?
Ruby: Of course I do, Allegra. It’s Mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Mom! Allegra, do you think she’ll get mad at us for sneaking into the computer room in the middle of the night to post this?
Allegra: I don’t think so, Ruby. I think she’ll like our surprise. We should do some other nice things for her today. You know how she always makes our birthdays so special?
Ruby: We should make her a tuna cake! Yay!
Allegra: I don’t think Mom likes tuna.
Ruby: Seriously? Who doesn’t like tuna?
Allegra: How about we try not to wake her up early this morning. We can just wait for her to wake up when she’s ready.
Ruby: But Allegra! What if she forgets to feed us breakfast if we don’t wake her?
Allegra: Mom would never forget to feed us. Let’s try and be quiet this morning, okay?
Ruby: But…. Okay, you’re right. She wouldn’t forget. I know! We should also get Mom some presents!
Allegra: That sounds like a great idea. What do you think she’d like from us?
Ruby: I bet she’d like a couple of moths. You know, like the one we caught the other day.
Allegra: I don’t know about that, Ruby. Besides, you ate it.
Ruby: I would save one for Mom. I love her that much! Okay, wait. I have a better idea. You know how much Mom loves it when I sit in her lap. You rarely sit in Mom’s lap, so maybe you could give her some lap time today?
Allegra: I could do that. I like sitting in Mom’s lap. I just don’t have to do it all the time, like you do!
Ruby: blows a raspberry at Allegra.
Allegra: What are you going to do for Mom today, Ruby?
Ruby: I’m going to kiss her and cuddle with her and love her all day long! And then I’m going to do it some more!
