Someone in our house had a birthday last month. I'll give you a clue...
He loves to shout out "Look Mom! I'm Free!" and carefully hold up three fingers.
Like any self-respecting home-schooled child he requested a school bus cake for his birthday. I had done a dump truck previously so felt pretty comfortable with that. However, two days before the big event he declared that he would only turn three if he ate a monster truck cake not a dump truck cake. My boys for some reason firmly believe that it is the eating of the cake that makes them change ages. Who am I to argue with that kind of logic?
I was not the only one who was compelled to take a photo of the cake:
The boys don't actually know anything about monster trucks. They know what a monster is. They know what a truck is. Logically they assume that a monster truck is a truck driven by monsters. To appeal to their sensibilities I drew monster drivers on aluminum foil to make the windows on the cake.
Me Too received some crazy cool, Montessori-friendly birthday gifts that will pop up in the photos in upcoming posts.
