I love how kids change their minds. Parents – you know exactly what I’m talking about. Like the 8 different things they tell you they want to be for Halloween, preventing you from getting their costume until 2 days before? This year’s birthday dinner was the same way!
First it was Fish Tacos (which I sort of expected, because that’s a top choice each and every year). Then it got switched to Shrimp and Pea Pod Stir Fry. Then Balsamic Tilapia with Asparagus and Red Peppers. These changes all occurred over the course of a few days! And yes, my daughter loves fish.
Needless to say, I waited to do the grocery shopping until the day of her birthday dinner. And what happened? You guessed it – her choice was changed again to Shrimp and Sausage with sides of broccoli, corn on the cob, and crescent rolls. Good thing I waited.
The one thing that never changed? Her cake choice. Yep, you guessed it – Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. The other thing that never changed? Her choice of cake decoration.
Sugar Rush indeed! (For anyone who hasn’t seen Wreck It Ralph, I highly recommend it – a very cute movie with a very cute message.)
