Maymay woke me up before the crack of dawn in anticipation for her party today. She has three friends coming over, and DQ is coming home. Maymay planned her party all by herself. She knew exactly what she wanted, and by golly, that's what she was getting. Maymay's entire party is consisting of watching the movie Titanic, eating pancakes, and playing Disney Dance Party on the wii. If you don't know by now, Maymay LOVES Titanic. Seriously. Loves it. The kid knows every fact you can think of and many you'd never consider. She adores the movie too, and has watched it at least 2-3 times each and every week for years. The kid will recite each line from the movie, and yells at the movie about how to either avoid hitting the iceberg, or how to hit it and survive. Kinda depends on her mood.
Now, the biggest part of most parties is the cake. Everyone loves birthday cake. Well, Maymay decided that her cake should be a Titanic themed cake. She loves my brightly colored pink lemonade flavored tie-dye cake, but wanted me to decorate it like the ship. Up until it was time to bake it this morning, I was under the impression that I was making her cake. Guess who changed her mind? Yup, my kiddo decided that since it's her birthday she wanted to make her cake herself. She had a friend coming early so the two of them took over cake making duties. I was only allowed to get out the ingredients and supplies, and to actually bake it. After the beautiful cake came out of the oven I left them to frost and decorate it. Well...they managed to mangle the cake pretty well. I stared at the cake for a moment and then asked Maymay what happened. She grinned at me at said, "Look momma! I made an iceberg cake".
Looks like my kiddo got her Titanic themed cake after all.
