What did you do on your birthday? Unfortunately, Reesey’s birthday was during David’s “unnamed employer Crisis of 2016” and it fell on a weekday so David wasn’t home. We pretended like her birthday was the following Saturday because David felt so bad that he wouldn’t be home. By November the girl’s missed him a lot and they got upset when we talked about him not being home so it was easier to not discuss him being gone for her birthday and luckily she’s young enough that she didn’t get it. That Saturday, Kennedy woke up early and woke Reese up so balloons were a no go. We did presents and hung out while they played with those for a while. That afternoon, we took the girls to the fair so now Reese thinks the fair comes for her birthday and plans to again next year.
I have to mention this because it’s one of those stories you’ll never forget… I asked Reese what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday. She was very specific and wanted a cake with purple frosting, topped with horses and sprinkles. The girls and I made a double layer round cake and we made some buttercream frosting to go with it because homemade is the way to go. I frosted it later and when I finished it I was going to put it in the fridge. I opened the door to the fridge and the cake flipped off the cake plate to the floor. It landed upside down of course. I had to laugh because what else do you do, right? Cry, maybe. So I did what any normal mom would do and took the bottom layer of the cake that didn’t hit the ground and stuck it back on the cake plate. I stuck candles in it, her number 3, and a bunch of horses and we sang happy birthday. I made her a new cake the next day.
