Finished up my son's 17th b'day cake in the wee hours of the night and since I decorated it fitting for his Auto Class at school, decided to take it to his class! Yeah, at 17, I'm taking a chance with embarassing my kid. I sweated the whole time walking down that long hallway in high school to the Auto Shop room. Walked into class and my son was shaking his head 'no'. Now I was really sweating!
But the class started singing, and crowded around him patting him on the back for bringing in cake and said what an awesome cake it was (obviously they are not cake decorators as I wasn't happy with the way it turned out). Teacher even let me take a group pic of all of them. So my worries went away and I walked away a good Mom today. Whew!
Awesome job MOM! They will always be our babies to matter what age--don't they know that!
That's cool! Good job Mom!!
Awesome job and what a handsome young man!
What a great cake. I still want to take stuff in to my daughter's school when she is 17!!
Thanks everyone. I wasn't looking for comments on the cake or my son, but just sharing that (and I took a chance) it doesn't matter how old our kids get, or how cool they think they are, they still love when we do stuff like this. I remember when one of my daughters was 17 (ironically), I made HUGE posters all over the school for her b'day. She of course was a little more dramatic about it. Or when I taped one of my sons lockers shut and stuffed it with confetti and balloons only to find out he never used his locker and had to share one! Poor other kid was late to first hour cuz he couldn't get his locker open! That was the last time I did that. I think I'll stick with cake!!! Thanks again!
Such a nice story...thanks for sharing. Shows that if we raise 'em right, they will appreciate our efforts no matter how old they get.
Great cake! Happy Birthday to your son. That sounds like something I would do!
