Perfect intersection of child's preferences with Mom's Laziness
I don't mean to make this into a Mommy blog, but having perused some of my favorites, where creative, kid-pleasing birthday cakes are regularly put on display, I just had to get in on the act. Michael really does prefer Bavarian creme donuts a thousand times to cake, and, well, I didn't take any convincing at all, being a mother who is totally dedicated to my children. (but I really think he has superb taste in birthday desserts.Unlike that demanding brat little darling who insists on chocolate cheesecake every year.)
And for all those who wonder why I, a mother of seven, blog about that Divine Office rather than my adventures in homemaking...no other explanation is required.
