Let Them Eat Cake!
Ah, yes, Ian has discovered the wonderful world of CAKE. I'm not exactly sure where or when the most recent exposure came from, but one day he started spouting it out while looking at his birthday pictures. I didn't think he even knew what a cake was, let alone be able to say it. He kept turning the pages in the photo album and pointing out every place he saw cake. I decided we should have some in honor of the occasion.
We happened to have a small container of petits fours. Not exactly cheap stuff, but hey, he's worth it. I picked out a chocolate flavored one and cut it in half for him. If he didn't like it, I would gladly eat the other half. Needless to say, he LOVED it! He blurted out CAKE again and thusly received the remaining part (too bad for me). Now it seems, anytime we're eating, he's asking for cake. As if that's not bad enough, he's starting to sound like Homer Simpson saying, "MMMMmmmm, cake," followed by a river of drool.
Wonderful Paul had bought us some mini cupcakes for Valentine's Day. They were the perfect size for Ian to hold. However, he didn't know what to do with the swirl of icing on top. He kept putting it in his open mouth, but not biting down. Out came the cupcake, completely intact, not even a tooth mark. I finally got him to try the icing, he grimaced as he chewed. The next time he ate a cupcake, he turned it around so he could eat just the cake part. He left the icing completely alone and unscathed. Normally, kids will eat the icing first, sometimes that will be all that they do eat. Not Ian, no, he marches to a different drum.
