Default Can you guess...

So, for my twins' birthday dessert tonight, I offered them four options. Who can guess which one they picked?

A. Mom bakes cake(s)
B. Select cakes from grocery store
C. Visit the gourmet cupcake store
D. Select dessert from the huge array of options at the local diner

A, so they could help and advise with the decoration. (And no doubt with a bit of a push from mum?)

Not A or B.

Lily - they do like to help with decorations, but if I really wanted to bake their cakes I wouldn't have given them three options for me not baking. (Probably I wouldn't have given any options!)

If it's C they're developing a fine taste in fine dining at a very early age.

Not C or D either!
You gotta think outside the box, like they did!


At Micah's suggestion they sneakily rejected all my ideas and opted for ice cream sundaes at home.

We must have done D too recently for it to have the right appeal.

Cheryl, this is hilarious

I can tell that you are having so much fun with your intelligent active children! You must be so busy all the time yes in the good way of bringing up children to decide and take responsibility.

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
