The mother of a 2 year old birthday boy was forced to perform fondant cake surgery just hours before his birthday party.
The Mike The Knight fondant cake sustained multiple finger stab wounds and superficial lacerations- at the hands of the 2 year old birthday boy and his 3.5 year old brother. The older brother was sentenced to three minutes timeout and the birthday boy walked away with a warning and a good behaviour bond.
After a successful surgery, the patient rested in an undisclosed and very high location (Top of the fridge). Meanwhile, in another part of the house, the parents’ bed suffered a near drowning experience at the hands of the birthday boy, who was arrested at the scene in possession of an empty water bottle. The bed linen recovered in the dryer.
Later in the morning, the birthday boy was, once again, apprehended- this time with a rolling pin, covered in a suspicious white powdery substance. Subsequent testing revealed the substance to be cornstarch. The birthday boy alleged, in gibberish, he was attempting to roll flat the flat screen TV. Thankfully the TV suffered no damage to the screen and only superficial damage to the speakers.
Aressting officers were off duty parents who should’ve been prepping for a Mike the Knight birthday party!
The party was a great success! However, the birthday boy was so exhausted from all of the excitement, he didn’t make it to lunch time, and fell asleep in his mother’s arms. Later, at cake time, “Happy Birthday” was sung to him as he slept on in his father’s arms.
The birthday boy’s older brother, who experiences impulse control issues, opened greater than 50% of the birthday presents despite three timeout incarcerations, redirection, and increased security patrols to secure birthday present zone.
Overall, it was a enjoyable day… except for the cake surgery (the mother has a greater admiration and respect for cake decorators. She stopped counting after four hours of decorating… and that doesn’t include baking time!)
