Calder's birthday is less than 20 days away and what have I done to prepare? Nothing. Check that. I have a half filled out evite that is primarily being sent to MY friends who no doubt want to spend a Saturday afternoon watching a three-year-old refuse to eat cake. I am sure of this.
After rotating through monster trucks, race cars, and then Lightening McQueen specifically, Calder seems to have finally settled on super heroes as his birthday party theme. Fortunately for me, lacking in time and energy to throw together anything really supertastic, the googles have a wide variety of Marvel oriented birthday party supplies which cater to Calder's specific tastes, Iron Man and Wolverine in particular. I also like this decision because I am of the opinion that a 2-D cake version of Iron Man's mask is much easier to produce than a 3-D monster truck. Having the whole week off in advance of the shindig I might even bust out some gumption and try my hand at fondant since that much red food coloring is bound to be rough on the digestive system. Amazon, however, will have my back for the rest.
