I just realized that it’s my day to post and I have not, because I am stuck in a morass of back-to-school and climbing toddlerhood and Max, my middlest boy, turns twelve today.
I am sorry to fail you like this, so I will leave you with a parting word of advice on how to maintain a healthy diet during a birthday celebration.
Be celebrating the birthday of a boy like this one:
…who chooses healthy white bean chicken tacos for his birthday dinner, and root beer floats instead of cake. Because I have never in my life been able to frost a cake without generously frosting my tongue as well, but root beer floats? Meh.
Of course, to be celebrating the birthday of a boy just EXACTLY like this one, you would have to come and kidnap mine, because he is fiercely one of a kind.
And you can’t have him.
