You.


I looked over at my Litle Son today - riding shotgun -
"Hey.  I think you're the greatest!  You know that, right?"
He smiled...
"Of course I know!  You tell me every! day!!"
I smiled back.  "Good."

  3. Trev doesn't like cake.
    What are ya gonna do? Give him one anyway, just because God Knows Who said birthdays should have cake? :)
    He likes sour candies. So we made it work.

  9. Happy Nine to Trev!

    For Nic's ninth a couple weeks ago we stuck the candles in his root beer float because he is also, not a cake fan. Love those little lessons they share with us!

  11. And you are the greatest mama to your boy! When our 2nd son turned 3, he didn't like cake either and I made him a giant bear biscuit. It was huge!
    Blessings to you and your son.

  14. My guys don't like cake either. We often do some sort of cookie thing for them or...if there are people over we do a cake for the guests, and the boys get whatever they want to stick the candles into! :)
