As you can see from the picture, K-man and Lou Bear were JUST as excited as I was:
So, I was thinking that there was absolutely NO WAY anything I received could come close to that! I was soooooooooooo wrong.
Qbear is out of town. Usually, he and the kids make or buy a cake. I mean we totally do it for the kids, right? They love to sing Happy Birthday. It has nothing to do with the fact that we just want cake.
Well, with Q gone, K-Man was very concerned that there wasn't a cake for my birthday. I calmly explained that Daddy was gone and that when he came home we could celebrate with a cake. I thought this appeased him. However, he kept coming back to me and saying things like "Mom, you should have a cake!" "Mom it's your birthday TODAY!" "Mom, we could make a cake!" Etc. I just kept telling him that it was fine.
Later in the morning, I gave the kids a snack and came to the computer to check my email. Well lo' and behold here comes K-man singing Happy Birthday with a bowl in his hand! Inside the bowl were some grapes and crackers?? Hmmm...okay, um, thanks buddy that is really sweet. "You didn't want to eat your grapes, did you?" To which his innocent eyes responded "No, Mom, look it's a cake! Dontcha see the smilie face? It's a smilie face cake just for you!" I had never seen him look more proud. It was like he had grown two feet just with pride! His eyes were virtually sparkling with delight. And, if you look closely, it is INDEED a smilie cake.
Eat your heart out Jeremy Camp!!
