A Teenager? Really?

Today is my son’s 13th Birthday.

Where did the time go?

I am not old enough to have a teenager, by the way. I guess if you want to get technical and be picky about it and sit there and count the years or something, I am actually old enough to have a grandchild. But still, I don’t feel that old in my mind.

I baked a cake this year, instead of opting for the easy way out and buying a store bought one. Gave me a chance to use my aluminum cake carrier.

Totally off topic, but I love the handle on this thing. Something so Donna Reed about it.

I’m into minimalistic cakes. Or I ran out of red icing. Both work for me.

These are pencil toppers. I stuffed vanilla Tootsie Rolls into their behinds, so I could plant then on the cake without getting icing all over them.

So now you know why these birds are so angry!

You probably won’t see me for a couple days. Have some projects to finish and have to go out of town on Friday (please don’t rob my house). If I don’t see you before then, have a great weekend!

    Hey, I found out about this on Facebook. Now I know why I follow your blog there!
    Yes, you now have an old baby. But you don’t look like you’re out of your 20s. What’s up with that?
    Happy 13th Birthday, Max!
    Your Mom’s Friend, m.

    Anything stuffed up my butt would make me cranky, too. Love the cake carrier. I have one much like it that was my grandma’s. I use it often, especially during the holidays. Keeps the critters from licking all the icing off.
    Happy Birthday to the teenager. You fun is just beginning- big grin from the gal who’s teenagers all grew up!

    Well, just the carrier. Ha, Ha, Ha.
    Have fun,

    Happy Birthday, Max!!! May all of your birthday wishes come true! Please give your Mom a hug, she is feeling old, she needs a hug and kiss right now. Hey, my son is 21, so I’m so old I need him to buy me a new car, nevermind a hug. 😉
    (Only kidding! I ALWAYS prefer hugs to ANYTHING else!)

    I know, I still can’t believe that my oldest is in college! I guess I could technically be a grandmother too….oh no! Anyway, hope your son had a wonderful birthday. I love the way you decorated his cake! Have a fun weekend with travel and projects!

    Happy Birthday Max!!!!
    Great cake even if the birds are angry lol ! But who wouldn’t be with pops up your butt!
    Isn’t it scary to think we could be grandma’s? I work with teen girls (my eyes are rolling here) and it scares me to know I could be their mother!!! Where did time go???
    I love this cake holder! I remember our neighbour having one like it!

    Oh I think i will paint my room all white…but when is another story!
    Cheers to Max!
