Before DH gets home? So, today is my birthday and so far it's not been brilliant. My planned treat day out with the kids has ended in coordinated toddler tantrums and we've come home early. DS is napping and DD is now clamouring for CBeebies.

My sticky toffee birthday cake is sitting on the counter looking very tempting indeed ( especially since I didn't get a chance for a coffee and a cake at a cafe as I needed to bring the DCs home.) WIBU to have a slice with my cup of tea? Or do I need to wait for candles, "happy birthday" and DH?

Will he be bothered if you do? If you think he'd understand that you had need for cake then go for it.

Hmm, yes probably. He gets grumpy about me nibbling crap when I'm at home all day ( as I'm trying to loose weight for health reasons) - mind you that's why there isn't anything else in the house for nibbling on.

Oh dear, just took the lid off to take the photo and it smells lovely!

I'd send him a phot with a candle in it and say you couldn't resist.

It's your birthday. He'd be really churlish to have a go at you for 'not being healthy' on the day you're allowed and encouraged to have cake!

Wait for DH and family to sing to you later.

What is a birthday without being sang to? And it should cheer you up later.

Do you have any biscuits/other treats that you can eat instead?

Happy birthday btw OPflowers

Ohhh just read that you don't have anything else to eat.

I still would wait though...

Have a big slice through the middle, then put the two halves back together? smile cake

Aahpiston Its already been cut... still me and DD have had a candle and "happy birthday" and I think it's far better that the DCs eat it now rather than just before bed when DH gets home. It was YUM!

Happy Birthday to you! Mine was yesterday and similarly crap and tantrum filled. I bought a birthday cake to try and mollify the wee people, but it didn't work. So I went on birthday strike and we will attempt a cheerier evening tonight! cakegrin
