My job has a lot of perks. I get to set my own schedule, work from home (often in my pajamas), and I meet all kinds of interesting people. One of my favorite perks, however, is the cake. Since I'm usually around for celebrations like weddings and birthdays, cake is typically a big part of that celebrating. It's especially fun at first birthday parties when my one year old subject squish their hands into the icing and begin discovering the sugary wonder that is cake. Brooks was a little slow to dig in, but once he got a taste, he was hooked. It's probably a good thing we don't do this at adult birthdays. It wouldn't take me very long to look like a clown if I were to eat cake in this manner.
