biscuits and birthdays

Yesterday was my last full day of work. I finished the work I needed to do and today, although not really working, I have a feeling I will be on call answering emails and doing last minute details. I am hoping today can mostly be about preparing for Isaac’s party, which is tomorrow.

If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know that I like going crazy-loco-bananas for my kids’ birthday parties. This year though, I really haven’t done much. We are keeping Isaac’s party VERY small since he can get overwhelmed by larger groups. And it’s also going to be quite simple. I didn’t even send out invitations! Just an email!

But I also think it will be a nice time for Isaac. A few friends, cupcakes, pizza, and blue paw prints all over the place for a subtle “Blue’s Clues” theme. :) On his real birthday, next Tuesday, I’ll bring in cupcakes for his class. And all of that *seems* like it will add up to a birthday well celebrated.

I made these Cheddar Biscuits in a pan and cut them into squares. It was MUCH faster this way, but less appealing for my kids, who think they are about to bite into cake when the taste of cheddar biscuit leaves them pretty disappointed. Oh well. I like them. :)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
