Do any of you parents out there have that problem where a pharmacist, doctor, or teacher asks for your child’s date of birth and your mind draws a complete and total blank? No? Just me? For some reason it always takes me a beat to remember which kid is which month on which day in which year. Maybe I’m just slow … or maybe this is a symptom of having 3 kids in 5 years.
But I know two sets of parents who are never going to have trouble remembering their babies’ birthdays, thanks to a rare number sequence in the calendar last week.
The New York Daily News reported that baby Nicholas Whittle was born in Michigan weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces at 10 a.m. on 11/12/13. Get it? 8-9-10-11-12-13! Nicholas arrived 5 days past his due date, so The New York Daily News quipped that he must have held out to make a big entrance!
Similarly, KWTX.com reported that Nicollette Brynn Anders was born at 2:15 p.m Missoula, MT. The parents realized Nicollette was born 11-12-13 at 14:15 in military time.
I love both these stories! Now if I could only remember my own kids’ birthdays…
