This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

Birthday cakes

Hubby finally uploaded some pictures off the camera and I got the network to work. So I felt like sharing birthday cakes!



Ponito's 11th birthday Lego race car driver/astronaut cake (he wanted an astronaut, but secretly I believe this was really a race car driver). I forgot to take pictures before we cut into him so this guy is actually missing his legs, but I think he turned out pretty cute and a lot like the toy.

Kitty's 15th birthday cakes are here. I actually had pictures of them.



Bob's 14th birthday Runaway Turtle cake (before the turtle's escape attempt).



Didn't take a picture of Bear's b-day cake, but it actually turned out as pretty as this. It was rectangular though.

Bear on his 17th birthday holding a Bugs Bunny balloon made for him by my fav neighbor, Sharon. Bear shares a birthday with Bugs. Doesn't he look thrilled?!

I can't believe I'm the mom of 3 teens (and a tween). I can't believe the girls will be in high school in less than 3 weeks!

Miz K - that's after I told him to cheer up and smile for the camera!

Kristina P - thanks! I love making cakes. Even the disasters are yummy.

I think he's kinda cute (Bear, that is). He just does't want to be anywhere near a balloon rabbit. It would, you know *ruin* his reputation.

Now, if you made a Lego man cake in my house, we'd expect the hands to be in one room, and the head in another ... (good cake hands, btw).
