Mine On Monday {M.O.M}

No one ever told me when becoming a mom you have to be a cake decorator, chef, home designer and nurse; that I would be up in the middle of the night cleaning up all kinds of bodily fluids and as tired as I may be, it most likely will continue in the daytime; that runny noses don't mean I am a bad mom....but most of all I had no idea how much I would love these kids and that is why I feel I have become a jack of all trades, master of none. I don't do any "MOM" skills well, but I still want to try because THEY are worth it!

Tomorrow we celebrate a birthday for a fun-loving little girl. She loves to make us happy and reminds us often when she does. We are so glad she entered our lives and she is SO excited for her birthday.

She has been begging for a princess cake. It didn't quite turn out how I wanted it, but I have a feeling she won't really notice. She will just love that it is hers and that it is pink! (Do you think it will still be standing in the morning...it looks a little tipsy!)

I love it...I don't cake decorate very well and your cake is a 100 times better then any of the ones I have done for my kids...I tried making a castle for Ruth and it turned out aweful & her crown cake was the worst...I think I need more practice...looks like you got it down though.

I hope your little one has a great birthday!!

Very cute, it looks great. I always dread having to come up with cute cakes, it would be so much easier to buy one, but they are way to expensive. If I ever need a Barbie cake I'll let you know.

Very cool! It took me a second to even realize that it was homemade, not professional or someone else's work. :) Happy birthday, Lexi!

That is IMPRESSIVE. Way to go.
p.s. I think you are a master at LOTS of trades- but that's just my humble opinion.

That is so cute. I love it. We did one for Abby and thank goodness she ended up decorating it. It turned out better than mine would have. seriously so cute though.
