birthday [Jul. 13th, 2004|09:13 pm]
Matt Flaherty
Not mine, my eldest daugher Rosie. She turned three on Sunday. Three is a very good birthday. It is the first time a child really begins to understand what is going on. Ask a soon-to-be-three year old how old they are going to be soon and she will do a thing with her fingers and say "three". This is more than most soon-to-be-two year olds can handle. We threw her a nice party on Sunday with about a dozen of her little friends and the mums and some of the dads.  beeblog made Rosie a cake out of little fairy cakes arranged as a snake. Here is a photo:

Pretty good, eh? Incredibly easy to serve too. Some would say in fact that this is cheating, although I would like to point out that she baked and iced these cakes all by herself from scratch and it was hard work. We had a gazebo set up, but the rain held off and it was a good day. The only thing winding me up was my fretful mother-in-law. She just gets so uptight around groups of children it is impossible for her to relax. She was nervously washing up and following kids around picking up after them and telling them off for basically just being kids. Sheesh! I'd like to think we could leave our kids with her for a few days once in a great while and that she would be able to handle it. Maybe when they're eight and ten.

A belated happy birthday to Rosie.

And, stunning cakework.
