Lil' E's Cake is Posted

Lil' E turned five on the 4th but we waited to celebrate with cake and icecream until today. He has been asking for a shark cake for the past 3 months. However for the past two days he has been a little cranky. I have warned him over and over that if he didn't change his attitude and start listening to mommy, his shark cake would be turning into a tinkerbell cake. Well today he and his brother got a little out of hand and broke one of my willowtree figures. I told him that was his last warning about the cake and sent the two up to their beds for a nap. While he napped I came up with a Fairy cake as a trick. I frosted a shoe box with pink frosting and put one of Razy's fairies on top and then put some Rhodys on it...Do not eat Rhodys they are POISONOUS! The cake was not meant to be eaten so I thought the Rhodys were an easy decoration in crunched time.

We sent the kids out to play and had them come in for cake and icecream. This is what Lil' E came into see sitting on the table.

He took one look at the cake and quickly turned around and walked out of the house. No tears (yet) or words. Just a turn and leave.
I ran out to follow him. I asked him what the matter was and why he was upset. He told me..."I don't like it. I don't want to see it." I told him to come back in and I was sorry for making a fairy cake, but I had told him that it would happen if he couldn't change his behavior. My dad came out to help me and I went back in. He got him to finally come in and told him to really think about what he wanted his cake to look like and make a wish...

It still took him a lot of courage to look. He DIDN'T want to see a pink cake

He finally looked and the sadness had changed to joy!

After the whole ordeal he wanted to cut the pink cake for the girls....Ooops sorry no can do to a box. He got a kick out of that.

Yes I know that this probably places me into the running for world's worse mom of the year. But now we all...yes even Lil' E laugh at the whole thing. The REAL cake made him forget about the whole thing. To see pictures of the REAL cake follow the link below. There is also a recipe found at the end of the post of the Shark Cake.

I am in dire need of a catch up. It has been way to long since I last blogged. I will be doing so in the near future to let you know what we have been up to. Just know that we are doing really well, enjoying the beautiful weather that we have been blessed with, finishing up preschool, and enjoying life together as a family.
