happy birthday, canada!

A conversation while driving out to the Canada Day parade in North Van:

J: Mommy, what is Canada Day?
Y: It’s Canada’s birthday. It’s the day Canada became a country.
J: How old is Canada?
(Leave it to Josh to ask the hard questions! I dig into the recesses of my brain and for some reason, 1867 sticks in there quite well. I do some quick math and come up with…)
Y: Canada is 145 years old.
J: One hundred and forty five years old?! That’s older than Daddy!

And later on that day, Josh comes up with, “Mommy, what kind of cake does Canada eat on it’s birthday?”
