We all scream for ice cream!!! (My father used to sing this when we were young.)
Nathan celebrated with his second-cousin for her birthday on Sunday. As you all know, traditional birthday party activities include cake and ice cream. What was so interesting about this particular cake and ice cream celebration was that Nathan's Aunt Kathy was feeding him these treats like it was baby food and he loved it!!
You're probably thinking "so what, he's a child - all kids love cake and ice cream" and I wouldn't disagree. To understand why this struck me I have to give you a tad bit of context. My sister doesn't have junk food in her house and doesn't let her own daughter indulge that often. They eat and drink organic and her little sweet pea wouldn't touch white bread with a ten foot poll! And, I know she'll read this and say - I'm not much different and I won't contest that either. I think she's just trying to be the favorite Aunt!!! Not that I blame her, I do the same thing with Emily. Isn't that what Aunts are for? Spoiling!
