They're a lot like a box of chocolates. Like Forrest Gump said: 'You never know what you're gonna get.'
Even though I would like to be That Mom who always gets it right. I usually get it quite wrong...
Bowling or McDonalds
In our family we have instituted the tradition that the birthday boy or girl can choose a nice outing:
- a trip to McDonalds
McDonalds always beats bowling hands down. The children always choose McDodalds. So when I asked my son Ot what he wanted to do on his ninth birtday, I was already contemplating that all important question:
'Shall I have one or two Big Macs?'
So when he said: 'I wanna go to the movies,' I was kinda taken aback!
Still reeling from shock over the loss of my two Big Macs I asked: 'And would you like to have pizza or pasta for dinner?'
'French fries!' he decided
'And for dessert you can have ice cream,' I promised, feeling generous.
'I'ld rather have cake,' he said.
