Cacoy, a close friend/cousin's youngest son whose real name is Caesar had a birthday last week. He turned 13 but to me he is still my baby nephew thus I ought to be forgiven for buying him a cake that does not look exactly like a teenager's cake. Aside from an exuberance of color candles, it's bursting with what resembles Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit for crying out loud. But unlike my son CJ who cried at seeing cherries instead of Ultraman on his cake (couldn't blame the poor, then 5-year old though), Cacoy was generally cool around the whole thing. Anyway he was probably too busy entertaining his buddies to care about what his crazy aunt has gotten him this year.
CJ's cake issue by the way has been sorted. (I'm a working, divorced Mom; do not have time to comb Bangkok for an Ultraman cake) I gave him Hong Kong Disneyland for his next birthday to make up for the girly cake. Boys!
I have been wondering about something for some time: technically I do not have nephews and nieces as I am an only child. But I am considered aunt to my cousins' children who call me Auntie. I'll appreciate it if any of you bloggity friends reading this, especially those from the mainly English-speaking side of the pond could tell me if you are also aunt / uncle to your cousins' or close friends' children. Thanks.
