Teeth & A Thomas Cake

Today I picked the kids up from daycare, 
and as I reached out to snuggle love my little baby girl something white greeted me when she smiled and cooed...

Yesterday she was just an infant, and now she has two teeth!

T.W.O teeth at once!  

She seems so grown up all of a sudden...
And here is little Mr.
A few weeks ago Andy asked AJ what kind of birthday party he would like...
AJ squealed, "OMAS (Thomas) Pardy!" 
(surprise, surprise)
Then Andy followed up with asking him what kind of cake he would like.
AJ screamed, "OMAS cake!"
(of course)
Last week the following conversation went down...

Andy:  I am the best dad ever!
Me:  Of course you are.
Andy: I got AJ a 3-D Thomas cake!
Me: Really?!  He will be SO excited!  Where did you get it?
Me: As in the place where people order wedding cakes?
Andy: yes...I think we are talking about the same place
Me: hmmm...
Me again: So how much did this 3-D Thomas cake cost?....
Andy: well...I'm on my way to take out another mortgage on the house right now...
Me: That bad huh?....

brief pause...(I'm beginning to wonder if I really want to know...)

Me again:  Seriously, What is the damage?
Andy: Enough that it required a deposit.
Me: A deposit?!
Andy: Anything over $50 requires a deposit apparently...
Me: Over $50?!  How much is this thing costing us?!
Andy: maybe...$70

long pause as I catch my breathe again

Me: $70

silence

Me again:  Does it puff real steam?
Andy: No, but it has Happy Birthday AJ written on it...
Me:  Yeah, but will it also sing Happy Birthday to him for $70?
Andy: I'm pretty sure it doesn't puff real steam or sing...
Me: Wow, well he better talk about this cake for the rest of his life...I mean...like....
write his personal narrative in 2nd grade about his amazing 3-D Thomas cake...
Andy: yeah...something like that.
Me:  Okay, this is going to be a fabulous Thomas party!  People will talk about it for ages...$70...that's painful...I mean...that's equivalent to the cost of...
Andy:  Let's just not think about it...
Me:  Okay, what's for dinner?

Me:  He's worth it.  I mean...Thomas cake: $70....The look on his face when he sees it: priceless...

I hope.

Leave it to Andy to go overboard. He's the queen of doing everything to the fullest. I can't wait to see pictures of this cake. Wish I was eating a piece. I don't even think I got an invite...just kidding. Congrats to GF to growing those teethers. She's so smart.
