Thanks for all the birthday wishes to my 7 year old yesterday! I let him read my post from yesterday, and he got a huge smile on his face. He is shy, but loved being the center of attention for a day.
As promised today I bring you what he chose for his birthday treat. He isn’t much of a cake kid, so I knew that wouldn’t be his choice. I showed him probably 100 desserts from my Pinterest boards, and let him pick. He knew he wanted peanut butter and chocolate (takes after his mom), so at least we narrowed the choices a little. In the end, I think it was the Reese’s Pieces that won him over.
Unfortunately I waited until the last minute to make these, and the store I went to did not have mini Reese’s Pieces candies. So I had to go with the full sized version. I am sure they taste the same, you just don’t get the full “polka dot” effect. He had a tiny one after dinner last night, and said he made a good choice. Really, how can you go wrong with peanut butter, oats and chocolate? He picked his birthday dinner to be at Red Robin, and wanted them to sing to him this year, so he filled up on ice cream before we got home. Looks like the teachers or my husbands co-workers are going to benefit tomorrow
