We were snowed in today and today just so happened to be my now nine year old’s birthday. Our plans were for he and two friends to go to Chuck E. Cheese, but his friends couldn’t come over and no one could go anywhere because of the almost 12 inches of snow we got. I decided to give him his presents first thing in the morning so he wouldn’t be too sad. His response was “you can’t open birthday presents before the cake”, so we had cake…at 9 a.m. to be exact.
What kind of mother lets her children have cake for breakfast? According to my son, well now, that would be the “coolest Mommy in the world”. A lecture from my mother is suitable and fitting for this event, – something about how mothers, me in general, have gotten lazy should do the trick. Don’t tell Grandma, you say? Unfortunately, Grandmas have a way of finding out these things.
