5 myths about having a birthday

1) The birthday boy (or girl) is always photo ready:

(probably would have helped if I brushed his hair)

2) The siblings never help open all most of the gifts:

3) Said sibling(s) do not get jealous over gift of tool belt set and say it was what they always wanted.:

4) Said sibling(s) never throw tantrums on their other sibling(s) special day:

5) It is JUST NOT POSSIBLE to let your child burn his nose on a birthday candle:

No parent would possibly let that happen.

Happy Birthday Elliot (Eli).  Can hardly believe you’re two now!  And thanks for being over your stomach flu so you could have your cake.

And eat it too.  :)

LOL. Birthdays are ALWAYS eventful here too! I learned early the secret to squashing the "green eyed monster". I always have a little inexpensive something for the other siblings wrapped up nice and pretty so they have something to open too. This is something my mom use to do with me and my brother till we were nearly teenagers. The gifts were never expensive but when we opened our "special" gift, we felt important too.

By the way, GREAT LOOKING cake. Did you make that yourself???

Happy Birthday Eli!!! ;D

Cassie said...

Oh wow that must have been a heck of a day! I used to always get super jealous on my little sister's birthday too. Kids just can't help it I guess!

hotpants™ said...

Is it a little ironic that he burned his nose on a fire truck cake? My daughter's only had one birthday, but my son managed to act like a little stinker the entire time.

MamaJoss said...

Oh, that was HYSTERICAL! Loved all the photos - and the story behind them. ;) Happy (belated) Birthday to your adorable little man! :)

Jenny said...

Oh, what adorable children you have. They are just precious. And I think his hair looks adorable. So there.

Pinkie said...

Happy Birthday, Eli! And poor baby about the nose. Candles aren't always our friends. They either burn our noses or keep multiplying until you can hardly see the cake underneath. LOL

I hope he had a great birthday and tell Hannah that her birthday is next and it will be waaaaay cooler. LOL

And the fire truck cake...the best :)

OMG... Happy Birthday Eli!

And, I am dying laughing. Though we have never burned our child's nose on birthday candles everything else rings true. Matthew would be Hannah to a T. I love this post.
