Big Kid's birthday is Friday and he's been telling me that he wants me to make him a dinosaur cake (we have a big pirate party planned for the end of the month, this is his request for the family celebration). I figured if it was something he'd found on Nick Jr., then chances are I could possibly create something that vaguely resembled it or ask Publix to.
So today I asked him to show me and THIS is what he thinks I will whip up for him. Hmmm. I could swing the volcano part, but the intricate dino cookies??? Where the hell will I get those? Could a grocery store bakery do that for me? Would a baker bake a dozen dino cookies for me at an unridiculous price with very little prior notice?
I suggested we look for another cake and he wasn't happy with that idea. I suggested plastic dinosaurs and he explained that the cookie dinosaurs were his "favowite fing about dat cake".
Sorry kid, your mom isn't Martha. Your mom is also pretty damn tired this week, anniversary of your glorious birth or not. We may have to compwomise.
