So it has come to this: both of my kids are in the double digits. What’s a mom to do?
Mary asked for a “Tape Cake” — one that looks like it was made out of a roll of tape. As it turns out, we ran out of time: the kids will be with their dad today for her birthday. But at least she got to blow out the candles on this one:
Both of my kids are practically 30 year olds anyway (this is from last year) but I’ll miss their little kid voices at the very least.
Nine was a hard age for me for my oldest. Both in double digits? Yeah, that will be rough. What on earth is a tape cake? Now I’ll have to look that up! Hope it was a happy one.
She’s completely obsessed with tape this year: painter’s tape, duct tape, bubble tape — you name it. I did end up finding a few pictures of “duct tape cake” on the web, and thought I could do something with fondant if I needed to, but since she wasn’t here for her birthday anyway, we missed out.
My youngest is 4, but my oldest is 10; and I’m watching the time crash over me like waves on the beach… It seems that even while I rock them to sleep they wake up too big to keep rocking to sleep. Thank you for this post!
Oh I know that feeling too well. All we can do is enjoy it while it lasts, right?
