Having Your Cake and Eating It Too

The 1st Birthday Ritual.
I still can't believe my brother and sister-in-law allow...and encourage this behavior.

Yep.  He really set this up.  Those are my brother's hands.

"Um. Mom. What is that and why did Daddy put it there?"

"Grammy.  I still don't understand. What am I supposed to do?"

"Well. Ok. I guess I'll just play with it then."

"Oooohhh. Deconstruction is kinda fun."

"And it tastes good too."

"Hmmm. I think I did a good job. Do you agree?"

Sometimes you just gotta break the rules and have fun doing it.
Life can be messy, but oh so tasty too.

Tomorrow I get to do something out of the ordinary. I will be meeting, in the flesh, a person from the blogosphere. To put a face, complete with expression and tone, with the voice heard through her words on her blog will definitely be like having cake and eating it too. It's not quite a year since I started this blog, but I think it's okay to celebrate a little early. Rules were meant to be broken occasionally.  Right?


  1. So cute... Your meeting sounds fun too.

  2. Awwww. That sounds like fun meeting someone you connected with. Good luck! I think it is time you celebrated, IMHO.


  3. awww what a sweetie pie! now i am hungry for cake. well um...gee i wonder who you might meet tomorrow. :>)

  4. Yes, even as a baby we know that truism: that IS what rules are for! Enjoy!

  5. Awwww, I'm jealous -- of your nephew and of you and our blogging friend!!

    Have a blast!

  6. Oh boy, I had such fun today. Three hours never passed so quickly. Our blogging friend is a REAL LIFE PERSON.

    But...darn it...I had a camera in my purse and forgot to use it. Proof that Lisa and Merelyme were in the same place at the same time. I'm so glad that my Sweetie and I went on a roadtrip for the holiday weekend and ended up in the Land of Synchronicity.

    We had a very nice time indeed. I'll have to share more later.

  7. oooh dang it! that is what i forgot! a camera! okay definitely next time. i had the best time with you guys. i was sad that you had to go. i cannot wait for the next time.
