Happy Birthday, Babe

Sunday, June 10, 2007

Well, I am thoroughly and completely exhausted. Having both grandparents over for the Babe's 2nd Birthday party is a version of insanity. But we had fun. Even though my mother told me that my cake tasted like wallpaper paste (when was the last time she ate that, I wonder?) and then she proceeded to let a giant fart that Mr.C's parents were aghast to hear. The woman is in another dimension. One that extends far beyond the twilight zone.

Anyway...the Babe had a very lovely day and it was a nice family weekend. Now, back to some form of reality.

So,...how was your Freakend?

    You mother sounds like quite a character. They always say that daughters grow more like their mothers as they age - maybe that's why Mr C's relatives were aghast.

    Sounds like a happy birthday all round.

    Love that picture of all three of you. You really have two cuties on your hands.

    lol your mother must be a piece of work!
    I love the pictures so much :) And the cake looks brilliant, no matter what it tastes like (I'm sure it didn't but then I've never tasted wallpaper paste).
    Congrats to the Babe and to you - pretty people ;)

    Happy Birthday to your little one.

    Umm... am I mistaken or are there three candles on the cake? Were they more for decoration than numerical accuracy?

    oh i am late!
    Happy Birthday to him. He looks so beautiful and happy, and you look beautiful too.

    Bite your words!


    Thank you (and the cake isn't that bad, actually!)

    Thank you, sweet friend. I ate a piece of the cake for breakfast, just this morning; really not bad...

    My mother takes the cake!

    (The always observant Crag;)...one candle is the #2 and the other two are two stars (see first photo). But actually, when my mom saw the cake at first, she said the same thing...

    It doesn't taste like wallpaper! Really!

    Dr. Deb;
    Thanks :)

    My mother is the ULTIMATE farty pants. The worst is the fact that she is so amused by her own farts. The fart itself wasn't so embarrassing; what is embarrassing is her never-ending laughter after the fact. Seriously. Give the woman a whoopie cushion and she is off in hysterics for hours.

    You aren't late!
    I can't remember Monika's mum very well; I think I'll have to go abck and watch a few episodes. But I really don't think that there is a tv character quite like her. She's too over the top. She also plugged the toilet while she was here and Mr.C's mum went in to discover that one!

    Oh Darn! I'm 2 days late! Happy Belated 2nd Birthday to your sweet precious Babe :)..I could totally have some chocolate cake now at 8:15 am ..lol

    omg, cathy!

    I am laughing out loud this morning! your mother is too funny!

    your son is precious : )

    i bet your cake is good!

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    You're not late, actually! And I ate a piece of cake for breakfast in your place...

    I am sure that my mum would amuse you, then...do you know anyone who pees their pants laughing so hard from the sound of their own fart?

    that comment about one of the grandmothers saying the cake tasted like wallpaper paste brought back a memory: my grandmother yelled out in a chinese restaurant after biting into a fortune cookie: it tastes like cardboard!

    your senses dim as you get older, it's true, but her sense of taste and smell was gone for her last 20 years.

    ps: my mother cuts ones which'd knock a buzzard off an outhouse - bless her.

    Oh, Cathy, I am sorry I missed the day ... Happy belated Birthday to your Babe ... hope he had a brilliant day.
    Your mum sounds like a character !!
    Take care, Meow

    Two? Already? Wow...where's all the time gone? I hope you asked about the wallpaper paste :) A friend once told me black licorice was gross because it was like licking car tires...I didn't ask & have always regretted that.
