Maymay has decreed that next weekend will be forever known as Maymay's Titanic Birthday Weekend. I might get t-shirts made. ANYWAY, I'm not allowed to hide, complain, mock or otherwise impede the non-stop viewing of Titanic. This isn't even the part of the weekend that's making me want to run to Walmart, buy a large container of Draino, stick a straw in it, and end my torment. This is the easy part. The part of her birthday weekend that has me ripping my hair out, is she wants to have her first at home party.
Maymay has never had friends. I'm not going into huge detail right now, but she has had a very difficult time in school and with making friends. She is in a new school that has a population of autistic kids, and kids that are more understanding, and she has made a few friends. So, why am I nervously trying to figure this out?
Maymay is dead set about having a party that consists of watching Titanic and eating pancakes. Yep, that's all she wants. No balloons or streamers. Just Titanic and pancakes. Oh, and a cake. Not just any cake. She wants me to create a Titanic cake. This is causing me great stress. Maymay is steadfast in wanting a cake that not only represents Titanic, but looks enough like her that people will instantly say, "hey look. It's a Titanic cake". I've decided I'm going to cover the cake with blue frosting to look like the ocean and put some rock candy to represent the iceberg. When Maymay asks me where the Titanic is, I'm going to sadly tell her I couldn't save the ship and it sank.
sniff, sniff.....does this smell like a disaster to anyone else?
