J-L’s birthday was yesterday and I spent Saturday with her and D. D turned 12 two weeks ago. One of my favourite times of the year is spending their birthdays with them.
It is also one of the most difficult times of the year for me as every birthday that J-L reminds us how long Yolandi has been gone.
The weather was not the best and when the rain let up, we took them to Spur.
I cannot believe that D is pre-teen and I did the typical “mommy” thing and unintentionally embarrassed him and a girl that likes him.
D loved his skeleton cupcakes- he wants to be an anthropologist and trust me trying to makes cupcakes to suit this “theme” was not an easy task- so skeletons it was.
J-L loved her Ballerina birthday cake, although the perfectionist in me was not happy with the cake.
The kids loved it so that is all that matters at the end of the day.
