Those are stories I will tell you before too long but...
...someone wasn't feeling well at school today.
...so someone else had to be picked up early too.
And then the first someone perked right up 15 minutes after being home.
So the second someone demanded a birthday party for her baby girl, B.
B is a favorite who has been missing from Abby's clutches for a few days. Her brother found her which sounds suspect if you ask me but nobody cares because evidently she is back just in time for her birthday.
Of course you can't have a birthday without a cake.
We used my grandma's plug-in General Electric beater that smells like oil smoke the minute you hit "whip." It needs to retire but I can't seem to let her rest her weary legs quite yet.
My favorite is that it makes a heart shape in the batter no matter how fast or slow you go.
(Tillie wonders what kind of fraternity house she got herself into.)
And birthdays are always more fun when nobody sees them coming.
