Missy & I decided to pick up a cake for DH's birthday. We were looking at cakes, ice cream pies, and ice cream cakes. Missy said she didn't want anything with ice cream. So we looked at cakes. DH likes chocolate so I chose a small chocolate cake. Then Missy points to a half sheet and says she wants Dora! (nickjr link) It was one of those cakes with Dora character figures on it. Of course she would notice this. That Dora cake could have been way over on the other side of the store and she would have sussed out where it was hiding. I tried reasoning with her and explaining that this cake was for DH, not for her, and she eventually agreed on the chocolate cake. I told her that the cake would be a surprise and not to tell Daddy about it until after dinner.
DH was running late from work. Now what do you think the first thing Missy blurted out from the doorway as DH was walking up to the house?
Missy: Daddy, we got you a cake!
Missy: ... with candles!!!!
DH thought this was cute. But still! It was supposed to be a surprise!!!
Missy loved putting candles on the cake, as you can see in the photo above.
