Here is Nat’s Cake

Okay, even though I’m stressed out of my mind and running on fumes — albeit nice-smelling Joy by Jean Patou fumes — I have taken time out, with my darling darling Ned, to sketch a cake for Nat’s graduation. Thanks to Candy Allen, a friend from these autism circles we spin around in, we have a concept and design that Nat will understand and enjoy.

We are making a brief calendar, of graduation day through Nat’s birthday (Tues the 15th). Each day that has an event will have the appropriate brief designation. This is just the way we have always done Nat’s calendars.  The difference here is that there will be three 3-D figures to add to the meaning:  a frosted stick figure in a cap and gown and blond hair Nat); a gray van representing the van taking him to the day program; and a tiny birthday cake to sit on November 15th.  Yay Nat will be at the bottom.  Here is the drawing I did:


Very easy to understand…he’ll love it! Glad I could help (I owed you one, Susan.) Hope you all have a very happy celebration.

Candy, you are very appropriately named. 🙂

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy you and your family and your many elaborate cakes. Each time one of you has a birthday I look forward to what you will come up with next. I am sure that this cake will be just as good (if not better) for your sweet Nat.
