Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake.

Big boy room is 90% complete. We just need to hang a few more things over his dresser and we are done. He even moved in over the weekend and there weren’t tears by him or me. Next up, nursery!

Three times the man has squealed like a little girl since we have been life partners:

The time the mouse was killed in the trap and he went to dump it in the trash and it hit his hand.

The time we were watching a movie with friends and a character got his nose snipped with pliers.

And, my favorite.

The time we were in the ultrasound room and found out the second baby was going to be a boy. This was the loudest squeal of them all and sealed the fact that we needed another boy in our life.

Just perfect. 

The fact that Jenny Mollen (Jason Biggs’ wife) is so pro-breastfeeding and the thought about your dog. 

What’s it going to be like when there are two boys running around?

Just perfect.
