Simon is almost two years old. I can’t believe it. My baby….is not a baby. We took some time to celebrate his birthday with my family over the weekend. He had a blast seeing and playing with everyone.
I baked him some chocolate cupcakes for dessert since those are his favorite. I gave him one, and since they are just mini cupcakes, I gave him a second one when he asked. Then he somehow convinced my mom to ask me if he could have a third and while I would usually never allow that, I decided to say it was ok since it is his birthday after all.
Meanwhile Elias had partially licked the frosting off of two different cupcakes, but otherwise left them untouched on his plate at the table.
At some point while I was cleaning up a bit and everyone else was socializing, Simon discovered those two unattended partially licked cupcakes. I caught him about halfway through the second one and took it away. This resulted in a short but very loud tantrum. He was quickly distracted by the balloons and ended up having a bunch of fun after that, but I can’t believe he ate four and a half mini cupcakes.
I guess there are worse things that could have happened.
All in all it was a very fun birthday celebration. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us!
