You can't have your cake and eat it too

I once overheard Mom say that "you can't have your cake and eat it too". At the time I was confused. There was no cake involved, so I knew she was just experiencing a sleep deprived hallucination. Or maybe she was trying to distract me. Either way, you should never bring up cake unless you actually have some and are 100% willing to share.
So I had been waiting exactly 1 year to have a cake of my very own. And I had every intention of eating it too.

I was so excited I could barely sit still. (Thanks to Mom for keeping me focused!) 

I could not believe my eyes. This amazing sugary masterpiece was mine...all mine.

This was it. The moment I had been waiting for. I could almost feel the icing between my fingers; the impending sugar rush. Get I go... 

...and that was as far as I got. I totally froze!
All I could think of was that craziness Mom had mentioned about not being able to have your cake and eat it too. What was happening to me?
This could mean only one thing. I have officially grown up. That is the only explanation for my lack of interest in completely destroying the cake.
Who knew that growing up would be so tough?

The bucket list

You guys.

Something big is about to happen.

Based on Mom's recent Google searches, it appears that somebody is about to have a big birthday.

To find out who, I decided to do some investigative work. So I put on my thinking cap suspenders and got to work.


After some complex calculations that I won't get into (let's just say it involved the ratio of toys I have to the number of teeth marks in said toys) I've been able to determine that the somebody is...


Which means I don't have a lot of time. You see, there are things that every baby dreams of doing before they turn the big ZERO ONE.

So I put together my list and am happy to report that I'm farther along than I thought.

1. Work on my communication (check)

2. Hang out with a good friend (check)
3. Be adventurous (check)
4. Get my toes wet (check)
5. Find the perfect chair (still deciding)


6. Be silly (check)
7. Enjoy a good game... (check)


8. ...and a good show (check)


Wow! Now that I see how much I've done, I guess I am ready to grow up.
There's just one thing left on my list....
9. Eat cake
