I'm Not Born Yet

Today my youngest son, age four, shouted to me from another room.

"Mom! Mom, come here!"  He sounded frantic.

"What is it?" I asked.

"Mom, I haven't been born!"

"Of course you have been born!" I replied, noticing his face filled with extreme concern.

"No, Mom. Look, I haven't!"

He showed me what he had found when he opened the filing cabinet: folders with all the names of his brothers and his sister, but not his.

"See, Mom.  Everyone is there but me.  I guess I haven't been born, yet!"

Darn it!  Looks like I need to go get a copy of his birth certificate (instead of waiting for him to start kindergarten) so I can make him a folder with his own name.

Because he has been born!  REALLY!
