27 June 2011
My daughter has been talking about her birthday non-stop for quite some time. She'd wake up every morning and exclaim "today's my birthday," to which I'd reply "no yet."
Then she started asking me when I was going to make her a polka dot cake. I'm not really sure where the idea of a polka dot cake came from but sure enough the subject came up every single day for the last three months. It actually made me a little nervous...can I deliver on my soon-to-be-three year old's expectations? What if I make the polka dots the wrong size or the wrong color?
Finally, June 26th came and Josie's polka dot cake was unveiled. She was ecstatic to say the least.
After the festivities were over and the atmosphere calmed, I asked "what was your favorite part of the day, Jos?"
"My polka-dot cake, Mommy!"
It's the best feeling in the world to know that all the presents and hullabaloo didn't live up to a little flour, butter, eggs and polka dots!
