my son is going to be 1 year in a few days so that is and I have been preparing the b-day like crazy. I will only be making cup cakes - but assorted flavours etc. I will post a pic when I have them all ready because believe me I hate baking and it is quite an achievement.... on to the sad part - I posted a few times that hubby and I are on different continents, and first we thought he could make it but now he cant.... . now I really don't want anyone at home to notice that I am rather sad because I can't stand this kind of stuff - I am a tough girl... (well not really). and I shared once which led a whole bunch of un-invited comments from some people in the 'family' who have dedicated their life to nothing other than believing their way is the only way. anyway, I also have my defence at the end of the month so I am up to my ears preparing and charged like an electric fence, so can't afford being down. and in the end we made the decision togetehr but the reason I am here is because I have to finish my studies - so can't really cry to him, he already missed his son's 1st year. and trust me, people are judgmental enough as it is, so I don't want to add by sharing my sadness.. but honestly, i miss him .
