Back in August, I told Layla her birthday was coming and asked if she wanted a Mickey Mouse party.
Her eyes lit up.
She had been to other parties and watched other kids blow candles on their own cakes, and this was the moment Layla realized that she, too, would have her own candle-blowing moment of glory.
Layla doesn’t know the difference between an hour, a day or a week. So for the next month she asked frequently about her Mickey Mouse party and wondered what the holdup was.
She even prepared by watching YouTube videos of kids blowing birthday candles.
The week of her birthday was busy for Sajan and me, so we had little time for prep other than a quick evening of decor and grocery shopping.
We woke up at 6, and the baking extravaganza began!
