Six




*sigh* My baby boy is 6. Don't let his cute looks fool you... this kid did not sleep til he was 2 years old, we lived at specialist ENT centres, coz he had constant ear infections... which is believed to have actually made him deaf for about 12 months of his young life... leading to speech and learning difficulties now! BUT... all that drama, is ok, coz he is the sweetest kid alive. He dishes out hugs and kisses, and endearing comments hourly. Comments on how nice I look, tells his teacher that he likes her scarf today, is the first one to comfort a crying child, he has personality and spunk-plus!!! Yes, I may be biased - he is my kid, after all...


His six-birthday (as he calls it), is a 2-day event (see post below for Sat's activities) and today we had an afternoon tea with family and a couple of close friends! 18 kids, all up I think... from only 4 families!!! H-Man had a blast. See his cake below...

The cake was my ultimate frustration. The stupid sponge (store bought... I don't do sponges!) just fell apart as soon as I tried to ice it. The icing was sposed to be grey - and it went navy! If you can't tell... it was sposed to be a castle. I named it "Castle Under Attack" because the cake was caving in all over the place!!! Anyway, I was told it tasted good, and the jelly-moat was a huge hit with the kids. I put "Hershey's Kisses" (courtesy of Gen) all over the top of the cake... that was the "treasure" that the knights were guarding... had to cover a huge whole left because the sponge disintegrated!!!
Love you my Baby Boy.
