I took the easy way out this year when it came to the Cheese’s birthday cake. These are supposed to be basketballs which have obviously seen better days, but it didn’t seem to matter to the birthday boy. “It’s okay, Mom,” he told me.
This birthday was about one of the easiest that I’ve ever done. The Cheese invited 2 of his best buddies to come over on Friday night for pizza, beat up basketball cupcakes, and presents before heading to a Lakers game at Staples Center. I highly recommend having a birthday party where after about an hour the birthday boy and party guests have to leave the house for the remainder of the party and you, the birthday Mama, get to stay at home and relax.
