Every year, on our kids' birthdays, we give them a free pass to eat whatever they want for the entire day.
Usually this is an open invitation for them to indulge in foods they would never normally eat at our house... or more accurately, foods we would never buy for them.
And so Austin turned 17 today, and this year is no exception. When we asked him yesterday what he wanted to eat he made this list:
breakfast - chocolate covered crepes
lunch - Space Aliens restaurant
dinner - corn dogs and macaroni and cheese
I imagine the only reason he didn't request a Happy Meal is because they won't sell him one at his age.
So happy birthday, my big giant 17 year old. Maybe after we eat lunch we can go to the petting zoo and feed the little duckies. But we'll need to head home after that because you always get cranky if you don't get your nap.
