Let her eat cake - OR - it's my birthday, dude...
So, my birthday was Saturday. My dad sent me some lovely flowers, the kids sent me cards and even the skids had a card for me. All very nice.
So - I am super careful about food right now and sugar and gluten are NOT a part of my life, so no cake for me. Which is fine because I am an adult and don't need a birthday cake
DH and I are sitting at dinner Saturday night and he tells me that BabyVoice asked if he was going to make a cake for me. He told her no, because I didn't want one and wasn't eating sugar and crap right now. She said "but I want cake." He said that maybe he would bring her a piece of cake from the restaurant. I said the following -
"since when is my birthday about what BabyVoice wants? Her birthday is in 12 days and she can have cake then."
he said "well, I was just trying to make her happy."
I said "not gonna end well for you, buddy. Today is MY birthday, so you really need to think more about making me happy."
He shut up and all went well.
Last night, my mom came over for dinner. She asked if she could bring a cake. I told her nope, we were good without cake. Sure enough, at dinner, BabyVoice pipes up that she wants cake. Now, I hadn't told my mom about the events of the night before, but G-d love her, after hearing BabyVoice demand cake, she said, "well, your birthday is coming up so you can have cake for your birthday. Today is WOB's birthday, so we will go with what SHE wants."
My mom doesn't usually "get it" but when she does, she hits it out of the park!
