first born

two friends have tagged me for this on facebook.
and since today is his day anyway, i thought i'd go ahead and do it.
hard to believe 15 years ago , on a rainy monday,
that my first born came into this world at 10:14 am.
i can still recall it as if it were yesterday..........

and marie calenders pie (cherry) with vanilla icecream.
Who/What irritated you the most? hardly anything because i slept all the time, but the sound of chewing really got to me.
What was your first child's sex? male.
Did you wish you had the opposite sex of what you were getting? no. i wanted a big brother to lead the tribe of children i'd have.

so off i go to make him a white-texas sheet cake-

it is his FAVORITE cake in the whole wide world.

it probably has more calories than all the cakes in the whole wide world too.

and i don't ever want to imagine what kind of life i would've had without him.
