Mom's Birthday or "Is Something Burning?"

We celebrated my birthday just the way I like it, small and at home. I am not sure why there are two cakes. My first guess is that my husband was disappointed with my choice of flavor, so he got a second one in a flavor he preferred. My second guess is that maybe it is too hard to fit 43 candles on one cake. But, perhaps the main reason is so that each of my girls will have their own cake to blow out Mom's candles.

Pearl seemed to think it was her birthday. She was obsessed with it all, the candles and the presents. Even though we split the girls on either side of me and placed a cake in front of each of them, so they could have candles to blow, Pearl still managed to climb over her cake and then blew out the candles on Chloe's cake. As a result, her hair dangled over the burning candles on her cake and it caught on fire, but quickly burned out. She wasn't even phased. PLEASE REFER TO PHOTO below for the visual. Darn! There goes my nomination for Mother of the Year.

That's too funny! Glad to hear nothing "burned". Happy Birthday, Mom!

PS Don't feel bad, I think I was disqualified many years ago when I shoved a pacifier (obviously without knowing) full of shampoo in Amanda's mouth, only to realize it when her mouth started foaming.

I lost my Mother of the Year award shortly after bringing Peter home when we fed him formula straight from the can labeled, "Concentrate"

He sure slept good, though! :)

Scorched nipple soup was another big hit against my award.

Glad you had a good birthday anyway!
