So, my sweet little Luke is having a birthday in about two weeks. He's at that age now where he actually has opinions and a few months ago I was looking through a Family Fun magazine and he saw this:
My little boy has a slight obsession with anything mobile. Especially tractors. So when he saw this- it was love. "Mama, can I have that cake for my birthday?" I like to think I'm a pretty fun mom, willing to try lots of different things, but this seems...a bit overwhelming to me. I'd love to. Don't get me wrong. And if I had 2 less children and wasn't already feeling exhausted from pregnancy I'd totally do it. Well, now I'm not quite sure what to do. It would be fun to see his face light up if I made it. But another part of me just wants to go to the store and buy a Thomas the Tank Engine cake, which he also has an obsession with. Speaking of which, I'm not even sure how he found out who Thomas the Tank engine was. One day he just started talking about Thomas and pointing him out in stores. Weird. But...I digress. So, what are your opinions? Should I make him the cake? (We won't even talk about all the "bad stuff" involved in the ingredients) Or should I buy one? Help me out! Thanks!
