My Baby, Ok My teenager (the one in red) recently celebrated her 14th Birthday. For a whole month I would ask her what she wanted for her birthday. Her only response was “I only want 2 things, a family picture and a pie in the face”. A day before her birthday, her father and I went to the store and bought a few items for her birthday party, including a pie tin and whip cream.
The day of her party, she had a good day and very helpful. At 4pm, a friend of hers came and she and the grandparents started playing “Mexican Train” which is like a domino’s game.
Once the rest of the group came for her party, It was a great afternoon of “Mexican Train”.
. Once the food was coming out of the oven and I had announced that the food was on the counter, it took a bit before anyone would leave the game. I wish we had more days like this as it was fun watching them all play.
Once everyone had eaten and were back chatting, we decided to do the cake and I went in and took the pie tin and whip cream into the laundry room. Mark was getting the candles on the cake.
I came out and had the cream pie behind my back, I had mom tell everyone to get their cell phones ready. Everyone started to sing Happy Birthday as I stand behind her with a pie, the song is in the last part, ready, ready. Go!
She was in shock for a second when she turned and got me. Of all people.
I loved it. Everyone loved it. After cleaning up, enjoyed our cake and opened up gifts.
Her grandparents gave her a cute gift of bubble wrap as for the last year, she has had a concussion from soccer, A broken thumb from being on a unicycle in gym class, and a sprained ankle form a kid at school tripping over her in gym class. So each piece of bubble wrap has a note on where to put the bubble wrap. I thought it was a great idea.
It was a great birthday for a 14yr old. Can’t wait to do it again when she turns 18. Can’t believe how fast they grow.
