I spent most of today getting ready for Liev’s party. Please help me understand why I obsess over cleaning so much! My folks wanted to select Liev’s birthday cake so I met them at our favorite Albertson’s. Mom and Dad took turns chaperoning Liev around the store as my eyes glazed over looking at Shrek and Cars cakes. He returned from his second tour of the store with a cute fuzzy gorilla and a big smile. My folks are so going to spoil him! Anyway, after fifteen minutes of leafing through the Monster Cake Book of Tackiness, we wound up choosing a simple “Happy Birthday” cake. Screw you, Walt Disney!
