My Husband Had A Birthday Without A Post? The Horror!

Dear Scott,

You turned 33 about a week ago. And we celebrated by making a cake and frosting from scratch and using said frosting to fill in the grand canyon that formed in the cake.

The rest of the candles fell into the canyon.

Oh, and I think that we watched soccer. I remember being very bored for about 90 minutes in the middle of the afternoon.

You said your birthday was perfect. Of course, you did. You’re so easy that way. But I know what you were missing. I saw those sad and confused puppy dog eyes crying out: Where is my Late Enough birthday post?

It’s here, baby! {hugs}

I want you to know that you are the most amazing man. You are thoughtful and funny and handsome and kind. But more than that, you are not afraid. You are not afraid to stand up for me. For our children. For what is right.

I admire your strength so much. I work to be as strong as you in the face of disapproving eyes and hearts.

You inspire me every single day.

Thank you for making me a better person through love.

Our family is amazing and healthy and happy. And it’s because of you.

Your hard work, your dedication, your faith, your hope, your strength.

Your hilariousness.

Happy Birthday, Scooterdoodle.

Thank you for being you.

Much love,

  1. Happy birthday Scott! You get to celebrate by having embarrassing pictures of yourself posted online for all to see. That’s something that you can’t buy in a store…

  2. I loved this post!! Wonderful words for your man! It is also comforting to think that across town there is another wife bored by the soccer game her Scott is watching. Happy Birthday Scott from The Childs Family!

    1. It’s a circus animal candle holder than my son wanted to use.

      I think that the frosting was heavy compared with the light fluffy wonderfulness of the cake — at least that’s what I told everyone.

  3. Hold on. Now just. hold. on. Is that a slanket made out of a sleeping bag? I mean, you’re rich now, right? Because if you’re not, patent that shit.

    Also, thank you thank you for the picture of the grand canyon cake. I can’t look at another perfect cake on the internet from all the baker/crafter types. This is a cake I would make. I also like the strange color of the frosting. Sort of a milky cardboard tone. So appetizing. Happy Birthday Scott!

  4. Happy belated Scott! Funny post…best part was when I clicked on the “boobs have feelings too” link from 2010…laughing uncontrollably…been there!!!!
