So my wife decided to make J's birthday cakes today, which meant it was my job for distraction. Enter a pot, a serving tray, a Starbucks drink tray, a bunch of uncooked pasta, and anything else I could find.
Most of the ideas originated from my wife or mother-in-law, but I was in charge of implementation, and I think I did a decent job of it all.
We scooped and poured. We played outside and inside. I read half a dozen books and took J on a fun but mostly unnecessary trip to Target. And in the end, Mommy made half a dozen (no exaggeration) cakes! I only wish I could have gotten more pictures, he kept moving every time I had a good one!
