A first - a birthday without dad's cake!

My son celebrated his 9th Birthday on the 15th of November 2010 and for the first time, Daddy didn't make him a cake! What?

Well, truth be told, we went away for a short holiday and were actually away on the day of his birthday as well so I didnt have the chance to make him a cake. However, I couldn't have him not have a cake to cut so what I did was to arrange a cake for him - complements of the hotel that we stayed at.

He was surprised when the hotel came into our room just before dinner, singing Happy Birthday and brandishing a cake brightly lit with candles. He was surprised indeed and asked me rather sheepishly how the hotel knew it was his birthday. I had to explain that I had arranged for the cake through email correspondence!!

Michael liked the cake but after eating a few pieces, he grinned up at me, said thanks for arranging the cake and then remarked:
"The cake is nice Dads, but not as nice as yours."

Ahh... what a loyal son I have!!

Happy Birthday Mike!
