I had this conversation with Haven the other day about her upcoming 3rd birthday.
Me: Haven, what do you want to do for your birthday?
H: Umm, blow out my candles. All by myself! I don't need annny help.
Me: Okay, we can do that. What kind of cake are you going to have?
H: Strawberry. Strawberry Shortcake with a big H on it.
Me: Okay. What else would be special that you would like to do on your birthday?
H: Just blow out my candles.
Me: That's it?
H: Well, maybe someone could get me a castle. Like the one I saw in that magazine and a pony and a carriage and some people.
Me: Yes, that would be nice. What should we have for dinner on your birthday?
H: Chicken, roast beef...carrots.
Me: What kind of chicken do you like?
H: The white kind. And roast beef, too.
H: And maybe we could have some friends over. To eat cake. With a big "H" on it. And blow out my candles. All by myself. Mommy, I don't need annny help!
All duly noted and taken care of. (Except we're having pizza, not roast beef!)
I doubt she will always be this easy to please!
