Let him eat cake

There were 20 loved ones at our home on Sunday celebrating a very special birthday.


There was music and merriment and tons of presents and a swimming pool heated to 88 degrees Celsius.


And yet yesterday when I asked Graham what, precisely, was his very favorite part of the party he didn't hesitate for a second before replying.


"My Backyardigans cake."


That single-minded devotion to cake? He gets that from me.

Apparently, he also takes after his Aunt Becky. Who is not, as you know, a blood relation. Sadly.

And holy crap! He's SO BIG now!

motherbumper said...

Any cake left? oh wait, like you'd let there be leftover cake. I know cake does not survive overnight in this house.

Happy belated Birthday wishes Graham!

Reluctant Housewife said...

I totally understand. I have a love of birthday cake that is just not normal in an adult... but I can't help myself. That stuff is good! It's fortunate, for my well-being, that it's only served at birthdays.

Happy birthday to Graham! You can see how happy he is with his cake - just look at that great big grin. Such a cutie.

Smiling Shelly said...

Oh, Kelly, He's getting so big!

Happy Birthday, Graham!! I completely agree that a cake - of any kind - is the highlight of every birthday :)
