Birthdays

I shall be remembered as the mother who always made a birthday cake. A birthday cake that is a bit too bright, slightly lopsided, and a plan B. A B Cake. Always plan on presenting  a Plan B cake!

somehow the "pool" cake became a something that looks like a book dipped in paint

But I will be remembered, and I hope fondly. She who makes mental cakes… But at least they are delicious. Here is a hint. If you are afraid of the reactions to your hard work, make sure to substitute ingredients with coconut flavouring.

Ah birthdays, the one holiday that parents actually get to take credit for the work we do and the crap we buy! Between Easter Bunnies, Tooth Fairies, and Santa, it is a wonder that kids think we do anything more than prep meals and laundry! And then along come birthdays. And we create memory explosions. Crepe streamers Everywhere! Cake galore. All the food colouring! And crap they will remember unwrapping long after the stop playing with it, right?!

Well that’s another holiday done and gone. I’m ready to put my feet up, relax and forget about it for another year! O but wait, the kitchen is covered in cake and half eaten water melon, there is random stuff on the floor and mess everywhere! Forget the relaxing and the housecleaning, who wants to go for a swim?!
