Happy 3rd Birthday Jojy!


I had a lot going on during what should have a been a day of birthday celebrations for Jojy, thankfully he's only 3 and unaware of pretty much anything but presents and cake. Still, being a mom, and feeling like I should have done more to celebrate, I just indulged his every whim where ever we went.


That's how he scored this pink teddy bear sucker.

What kid doesn't love a giant bouquet of balloons? I let him pick any balloon he wanted at the party store (even though he wasn't getting a party...)




I always let my kids pick any kind of cake they want. They never say "chocolate" or "carrot cake", they always tell me the decoration. Jojy requested a "Money cake". Money? I asked several different times, just to be sure. And when he saw the finished cake he was THRILLED. It was very funny. And my hubby the finance guy said "That's my boy". Hahaha.


Seriously not my best effort, but he's three, what does he know?



I had to be at a song practice that evening, so I told the family after dinner (which he picked- Dino Nuggets...ugh) that when I got back we could have birthday cake. Well, when I got home at 8:30, no one knew where Jojy was. We found that he'd put himself to bed. He's NEVER done that before. So we lit his candles, sang "Happy Birthday" in whispers and his brothers blew out the candles.



Not to worry- we lit the candles and I let him have cake for breakfast.

I love that cake, that is so funny that he wanted money and not Elmo or something 3 year old like. You have the cutest boys!

I still think it's so funny that he fell asleep! Cute little Jojy! I think the cake looks great and don't worry about a low key day. I think you did it perfectly and sometimes we need to remember that we don't have to go "all out" all the time! He had a great day and that's all that matters. Good mommy.

I love that the cake is already partially eaten when he blew the candles out. I helped a friend blow her candles out on her birthday one year. She was so mad that she ran into her room crying and wouldn't come out. She's never really liked me since.

Great money cake! I think it is fabulous. You should be proud.
So funny he put himself to bed. He must have been so exhausted to do that. What a big boy he is now. He really does look so much older. He is loosing his little baby look & becoming a little boy. My how time flies.

Poor Jojy got so excited about his awesome money cake, balloons and sucker that he couldn't hold on any longer to eat it. What a sweet heart. You guys are the best parents.
