Summer Birthdays

IMG_3845

I just finished packing up the cupcakes I made for my son’s birthday celebration in kindergarten today. His real birthday is in July, but each student with a summer birthday gets to celebrate like everyone else during snack time on one’s own day in June. Hmm. I’m feeling a little bitter.

Ok, I know it was ages ago, but my birthday is in August and I NEVER celebrated my birthday at school! One exception: my friends decorated my locker and bought me my favorite candy (sour watermelons) one day before the end of year in middle school. I remember it vividly because I felt that special feeling of importance that a kid has when she’s the center of attention.

Clearly, my lack of a birthday celebration in school didn’t scar me for life.  And I’m not really bitter, nor do I disagree with giving each student a special day just like the rest of the kids. I’m so glad my summer baby will have his special day today. He’s so excited for it!

Oh, and check out my picture!  I used a J. Crew box to hold the cupcakes.  It was perfect because of it’s deep height.  Then, to separate the chocolate and vanilla and secure the cupcakes in their positions, I put an empty paper towel roll in between them.  A genius diy hack, totally by accident!  Score!
