Birthdays and inanimate objects

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CONNER. To think, just 7 short years ago I could wake-up and not have to use the facilities before 5 minutes had past… {sigh} ahh… a youthful vaginal wall.

But, I digress.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUDE… who knew I was old enough to have a 7 year old?

Not I, that’s who.

I will do another entry titling all the things I love about having a 7 year old, but that will just have to wait, for we are off for a little train ride in a few minutes. I just had to show a picture of the cake:

Seriously, people — I was YELLING AT THE CAKE.

BTW, do NOT wait for your cake to thaw before frosting if you’re gonna do something dumb like cut i apart to make the space shuttle. The thing just kept peeling apart and I, being apparently dumber then the cake, kept YELLING at it for crumbing up. Needless to say, I just kept the mantra in my head that all things can be fixed with frosting, and it turned-out OK… but just so you know — those wings, there’y probably about 50% cake, and 50% frosting — Conner will love it. I think I was freaking out more because the cake was pink and no 7 year old wants a pink frosted space shuttle cake. What do you guys think?

Drew, being the awesome feller that he is took the kids away from me as I was screaming at the cake to “COME ON AND STAY TOGETHER YOU @#%&(*) CAKE” and didn’t even mock me. Hence, I made him his own strawbery-chocolate twinkie, filled with love and devotion (know that if I’d ever divorce him, he could use this particular day for grounds of insanity).

    Honestly, your cakes are getting much better. Even the infamous cake at his 5th birthday was just fine. Fine. You could calm down about them. I think it turned out fantabulous. :)

    You and your love and hate relationship with cakes. It’s like a bad boyfriend you should just stay away from but you keep going back to for more abuse! :-P

    You are such a good mommy that you make whatever your boys want. Oh by the way, I cannot bake, I tried to make banana bread in the bread machine today and it failed. How does that happen?

    I think your cake looks awesome! The ones that take the most work are always the ones that turn out the best (maybe like kids, don’t ya think?).
