Today is The Great Cake Day! I was planning to make cupcakes, however, D surprised me with a cake on Friday night. So here it is:

Hubbs and I talked a lot this weekend about IF and how we're feeling. Sometimes I assume he's not affected by this whole nightmare I guess b/c he doesn't have diarrhea of the IF-mouth like I do. But he is hurt. He is sad. He is scared we won't be parents. He is scared he won't be a father. He is scared he won't get the chance to create a human life and teach him to be a better human being. It's strange how him showing his vulnerability makes me want to be stronger for both of us. So, this is cake dedicated to D. Besides, he ate most of it anyway :)

I still know nothing about his results. Will update when I do.

Mmmm, it looks so pretty (though I bet it has enormous chunks taken out of it by now as well it should!). I'm glad he surprised you. And shared all of that with you.

A man who surprises you with cake. Now he's a keeper.

I'm sorry he's hurting too. I know what you mean, they talk so much less so we assume they care less, it isn't always the case.

But surprise cake. I'm very impressed.
