is the Big Day.

The day we’ve been talking about since all that hubbub, just over a month ago, about his brother. This time, it’s Andrew’s birthday. It’s kinda nice how we each get a birthday, isn’t it?

He’ll be four and he can’t wait. He tells us he wants cake and balloons and a red present. Sometimes he says he wants his red present to be big and sometimes he wants it to be little. And he’s always a little vague about what should be inside the present. It’s more the color of the wrappings that he’s sure about. And THAT, my friends, is from my side of the family.

We are having a small party for him on Saturday. This is the first party that we kept the invite list to folks about his age…and their families. This time, it really might end up to be all about Andrew.

Though, I did my best to decoy the attention with the dessert.

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.

    It's a chocolate cake, so I just dug up a little of it with a fork and put it in the truck and placed the scooper truck with his scoop down in the cake.

    What a fabulous cake/cupcake… installation! :) Did you build the cake holder as well?

    Love it, love it! Especially the forklift under the cupcake. Very creative, Robyn! Well done!

    It must be fun to have Isaac's birthday right before Andrew's, so he gets a reminder of how fun birthdays are and can really look forward to it.

    Have fun!
