“We going to get a RED cake and RED balloons and RED presents.”
We were at Publix last week and they were out of sprinkle cookies in the bakery. This led to our biggest public meltdown to date. She was bawling and screaming, “SPRINKLE COOKIE!” as I darted around as fast as I could to get our groceries. As I got to the cake mix all crying immediately stopped.
“I going make Seanie a birthday cake.”
It was all over. Just like that.
I managed to talk her into sprinkle cake instead of red cake. I had some Mickey Mouse cupcake liners I’d bought on clearance. I used a mini loaf pan to make Sean a smash cake of his own.
For the next two days all Caitlin could talk about was making Sean’s cake. After opening presents it was time to bake.
She was thrilled! For dinner that night we had Sean’s favorite: meatballs. He really enjoyed himself! As an added bonus we moved him from the high chair to the booster seat.
After a quick clean up it was time for cake!
After all the fuss over making a cake, she only ate a bite of hers. Oh, and NO icing. Just sprinkles.
Sean on the other hand was all about the cake and icing!
Grammy called and we were able to set up a video chat so that she could join in the fun.
Kisses from Caitlin
Sean had a blast!
We loved watching our happy little birthday boy!
