Having a child born in the year 2000 is a special thing I think. They will be a class that for many reasons had different expectations over them than others.
They forged the way into a new millenium…they will always know how old they are as long as they know what year it is….all the ideas of what ‘life would be like in the year 2000’, from years past come to rest as we look ahead to different milestones.
When I mentioned that it was our responsibility to come up with dessert for the family Easter gathering, he quickly said “what about a chocolate volcano cake?”
Being the nurturing mamma that I am, I applauded that idea and proceeded to ask “what would it look like? what kinds of things would we use?”
He didn’t ponder long and decided that chocolate bars and cherries would make the perfect volcano. I think I shocked him when I asked “so, do you want to make it?”
After a short conversation, we had our shopping list made:
4 different kinds of chocolate bars
Whipped cream ‘in-a-can’
Now you have to understand…..his Chef Daddy started cooking at age 5 or 6, so the fact that HBI was ready to take this on at age 7 was really a proud-daddy moment…!
Here is the result!
That photo looks better than any Pioneer Woman has ever done!
Anyone else raising a kid from the class of 2018? Would love to hear from you!
