D-D-D-D-D-D-Dora

While it is still on my mind, here are some funny things about the Little Jamaican's birthday. Ever since her 3rd birthday wrapped up, she had been asking me for a "Dora Cake." Usually she is very fickle and changes what she wants often. And I mean often. We can go out to eat and she will change her mind three times between ordering and getting our food at McDonald's for crying out loud. She had been dead set on a Dora Cake for almost a year never wavering. So here it is:I think the bakery did a nice job. If you look a little closer at the "y" and "B", you might notice where someone got a little impatient to taste the birthday cake. I'm not saying I know who for sure, but I put money on My Son or the Little Jamaican. Then there is the inescapable sibling rivalry that happens when one of them gets a new toy. The Wild Child is pouting in this puddle. Kind of makes you wonder about a few things, doesn't it?I really wanted a picture of the Little Jamaican on her new Big Wheel, but she and My Son are way to fast for my "not so expensive" camera. This is the best shot I got. Hard to believe there is three years between them.

That IS hard to believe, the age difference.

So is that a pee puddle she's pouting in?

Flea- No, just a sprinkler puddle on the drive way. Why she had to pout in the puddle is beyond me. Thanks for stopping by.

You home school? How cool is that? I did for nine years. The last four were odious, hence the damage to my children. Lots of moms love teaching their children. And it sounds like it's right for you and your family. I just hated it. It became the measure of mom-hood for me. Being a rotten teacher equaled being a rotten mother. That's when it was time to quit.

I never consider a birthday party a success until someone cries or throws a tantrum. So congrats to you.

Thanks for your comments on underage Chinese gymnasts.

I think she has to pout in the puddle because it is much, much sadder than pouting in the dry :P

Also, that picture does make pouting look cute, so maybe she knows what she's doing.
