HAVING THEIR CAKE AND EATING IT, TOO!

My niece, Leah, took the cake at her First Birthday party yesterday ... literally. My sister and brother-in-law wisely got a special "stunt cake" from one of the best bakeries in Massachusetts just so Leah could do what every new one-year-old should have a chance to do: grab her birthday cake with two hands and dive right in. Leah had a ball and, as for the rest of us, we enjoyed a special second "Leah" cake, and a third cake, as well, given that my nephew, Jackson, is turning three and yesterday's party was a joint celebration. Jackson, never one to be upstaged, took to the stage to sing his favorite song -- the Cramps' classic Goo Goo Muck -- accompanied by his father's band ...!
