Yesterday was Tobi’s 6th birthday! I can hardly believe it.
We got a LEGO watch for him, which I was able to pay for with Amazon gift cards that I redeemed Swagbucks for.
After presents came the cake. I had tried to make it look like a rook from a chess game because he’s been obsessed with chess lately. It didn’t turn out exactly how I’d planned. So I wasn’t too surprised that he couldn’t tell what it was right away. Still, I wasn’t expecting the guesses he had as to what it was though.
Me: Can you tell what it is?
Tobi: It’s a cactus!
Me: Nope..try again.
Tobi: A fork!
Me: Nope..it’s supposed to be a rook
Oh well. I know now that I will never have a job in cake decorating. And no, I didn’t take a picture of it. I have to save some of my dignity, right?
