Finishing one of many shopping trips in preparation for the boys' birthday bash, I said to myself-- the best thing about having children with birthdays in February is that their cakes and chocolate milk will stay cold in the trunk while I run the rest of my errands.

Those fancy character cakes cost twice as much at the store. Who knew? I decided to buy plain sheet cakes and decorated them with my boys' favorite things: CARS for Liam and Dinosaurs for Henry. They were happily fooled into thinking these were the cakes they had picked out in the bakery book.
Some children will watch the same movie seventy-three times before their 3rd birthday. Who knew?
A happy family where once there was none. Who knew?
