It's been over three years since white bear had a birthday so Ben thought it was time for another. He announced this during the fun of getting the Wii and no one remembered. When I went to bed on Thursday Ben had left a note by my door telling me that tomorrow was white bears birthday. This was in fact an invitation but contained no invite and I forgot about it. Friday was full of Wii based fun until it all got a bit much for Ben, he asked us where white bears presents were and me where his cake was and when we all shrugged our shoulders he burst into tears and wailed 'does no one love white bear?. I asked him what he'd given white bear expecting the reply to be nothing but Ben had given him a toy car. Then Ben said 'but you got an invitation' , that's when I twigged the note was an invitation so I said 'great, where's the party? I can come' to which I was told I was in charge of providing the party. As it was bed time there was no chance of an impromptu party and Ben was sent to bed.
Mollie, who has to rank up there as one of the sweetest sisters, found some toys and wrapped them for white bear and decorated the sponge cake I baked as a cat (as requested by white bear) and Ben is the happiest boy today.
