So, then! Let's get on to the next cause for complaint! Next week is T9's birthday. He turns the big 0-2. We don't make a huge deal about birthdays around here. I mean, we do cake, party hats, and have some family for gifts, but there are no bouncy castles or clowns or pinatas. (Seriously, you think I'm going to give that kid a stick and order him to attack? I've spent the past six months discouraging precisely this behavior. Aimed at me. And the cats.)
So to make it special in a non-BIGEXPENSIVEPRESENTS! kind of way, I try to make a cool cake for the kid. Whatever he seems obsessed with most at the moment usually makes the cut. For example, when Plus One turned two, he got anxiety-ridden Pablo. (Let's not look into that too much, ok?)
This year, it'll probably be Spider Man. It most certainly will NOT look like this:
And since they both got this traditional panda bear cake for their first birthdays, this will be the first time I need to be creative for the two year old. And at the moment, he happens to be most obsessed with Oswald.
Oswald the octopus.
And I imagine my cake may turn out something like this.
Prepare yourselves for the pictures, folks. Because, really, nothing says I'M TURNING TWO like blue phallic limbs and misshapen heads.
And that blue frosting is going to be fun when....eh, nevermind.
