    Actually her mother wasn’t too off… I mean, in some languages, for birthdays, (Portuguese for example) it’s customary to say “Feliz Aniversario” which translates to Happy Anniversary… 🙂

    This got to me, because I too once was lost in translation, English is not an easy language. It’s heartwarming to see all the nice comments. A beautiful moment for sure, not at all awkward but glad it was shared!

    This is adorable and not awkward at all. After all, a birthday is actually the anniversary of one’s birth.
