    I am happy to report that neither cuttlekid had that first birthday.

    But I have seen them.

    Then you have failed as a parent.

    I have succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.

    And I taught them both to cook. (yeah, and to read, but whatever…)

    Or you could give her a bowl of frozen peas and watch as she happily eats them one at a time, or throws them around the kitchen, while you eat cupcakes and drink adult beverages.

    No, no, your way is better because she’ll have nowhere to go but up in the birthday department.

    I’m sure my older son had no clue what we were on about but he was more than happy to perform as the center of attention. So we have the requisite acres of icing photos and, when he wanted out of the high chair, he just downloaded to his diaper. He knew how to get his way.

    Sounds like a plan. They are tools for our amusement. That’s what I learned when I was them, and it must be the way of things.
