For those of you who may not know....the Genius is a typical first-born child and VERY type A personality. I think it will serve her well in life. A few days ago she was talking about her upcoming birthday. She was going through a cookbook and had found some cupcakes she liked. But she was feeling conflicted because she also LOVES a good cake. She really, really loves cake. Once I had made a cake and we came in and found her singing to it. The kid loves cake! So choosing her birthday cake is a really big deal to her and she must get it just right! Last year we had a cupcake bar. I made chocolate cupcakes and then we set out icing and tons of sugary toppings and everyone got to build their own! But this year she wants something differnt. So, a few days ago she says, "My birthday is coming right up (it's really in June! Ha!) and I need to make a decision about my cake. I will decide on may 1st." I had forgotten this and this morning I went to get a cup of coffee. As I passed the calendar I said, "Wow! It is May 1st already!" The Genius sits up and says, "Oh my word! I have got to decide about my birthday cake today!" LOL! You have just got to love her!
