I don’t know how good your memory was when you were a toddler (I’m not one of those
amazing people that can remember things from when they were two) and I sure can’t remember
any of my birthday cakes!
Most toddlers love cake though and if they’re old enough to be able to eat some, it’s something
really cute to have at your child’s birthday. Even if they’re not old enough to have a slice yet, the
grown ups can. It’s sometimes the highlight of attending kids birthdays as an adult, at least, it’s a
great excuse to eat cake - not that I need one, personally! Although I much prefer natural sugars
than processed ones for my little ones, a little bit now and again doesn’t stress me out.

Ok, I’ll admit it… sometimes I’ve actually had nightmares about travelling with my kids. It’s not that they’re not capable of behaving, it’s just that they’re toddlers and toddlers can be unpredictable! Often it’s not them I’m worried about - it’s me! What if I forget something? Something important like their food, a change of clothes or worse - an actual child!
I’ve been left in a cold sweat after dreams of running through the airport terminal in my baby food stained clothing, eyes in the direction I’m going, clinging to the bags for dear life whilst Coco sits patiently on the seat I just accidentally left her on.
