Giant piece of cake + that last piece of broccoli at dinner = bad news

We went to a party for our friend Sean's 40th birthday today. It was a lot of fun. The kids had a ball playing with all the other kids and swimming.

When it came time for birthday cake, Jackson was all over it. I don't know if he has ever turned down cake. That kid has a sweet tooth! Someone had a brilliant idea to give him a piece of cake the size of a softball with another two inches of frosting (he really wanted the balloon, which was a big glob of frosting). He ate the whole thing.

Fast forward to dinner tonight. We had some pasta and some broccoli. Jackson wanted to leave the table and I told him he needed to finish his broccoli. As he forced down that last bite of broccoli, his overactive gag reflex kicked in and up came dinner--- including some of the bright green frosting. YUCK!!!!!

I have no idea why I am documenting this story. Someday I will want to remember the unpleasant parenting stuff along with the fun stuff......right????

ewwww! Guess who won't be eating broccoli anytime soon? As for the cake...I am sure Jackson won't be deterred from that!
