Before my son, Lev’s, 6th birthday, we asked him if he’d like us to do anything special. He gave me and my wife a slightly suspicious look and asked why we had to do something special. I told him that we didn’t have to, but that people usually do special things on their birthdays because it’s a special day. If there was something Lev would like, I explained, like decorating the house, baking a cake or taking a trip somewhere we don’t usually go, his mother and I would be glad to oblige. And if not, we could just spend the day as usual. It was up to him. Lev stared at me intently for a few seconds and said, ‘I want you to do something special with your face.’
