This is my other son James. James was 12 today!!! Happy Birthday, James. I love you loads!

Funny story actually. James is obsessed with chicken. So, Instead of serving him a birthday cake with candles in, when it was time to sing Happy Birthday to him, we brought him out a chicken with candles in. Of course, we actually had a cake but he didn’t know that.

Happy Birthday James

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear… Suddenly, We were interrupted by the sheer look of panic on James’ face as we brought out a chicken. Next, panic turned quickly to dismay as he thought he had no cake.

So I had to produce the goods pretty quickly and we did have a Spongebob cake on hand, but I believe by this point, I had failed as a mother and ruined his birthday. Unlike Dave, I never ruin Dave’s.

Then, I failed further in that I seem to have lost all the photos from that day. So clearly, I am a failure as a parent.

I guess I will just have to try again next year. I’m really sorry James.

Update. I found the cake. I lost the word Day.
