Let him eat cake – wot so funee?

Once again Andrew has been coming out with some great funees this week. In his world, there is a lot of cake. If it’s something that looks edible, or is in a place with other things he knows are edible, but he’s not tried it himself before, then he will often call it a “X cake” [for X insert suitable describing word]. At the weekend I made some cheesy spinach and tomato mini muffins. They were in a tin on the table for Saturday lunch, and to try and alleviate the tantrum that was ensuing from the fact that I had dared to put soup and cheesy muffins on the table instead of his addiction of cheese sandwiches, I offered him one saying “Would you like one of these Andrew? They’re cheesy!” From behind the flood of tears, the drama king could just about be heard blubbing “Andrew want cheese cake” – to be fair they are kind of cheese cakes, but it tickled me thinking of actual cheesecake and there was no way he was having the treat of actual cheesecake.

On Sunday we went out for a picnic lunch with Granny and Grandad. Now Granny had been very organised and done up a cooler bag with food and of course an ice pack to keep it cool in the 19 degrees heat that we were finally experiencing. After we’d finished most of the food, Andrew was interested in looking into the bag, probably fishing for more food, just in case we’d missed anything. And we had – he found an “ice cake”, which was all blue and cold!

And along with these cheese cakes and ice cakes I won’t forget theย sausage cakesthat I made the other week, another funee from Andrew’s world of cake!

Sadly the parrot bouncy ball that I mentioned in a previous wot so funee post met a watery end last weekend (read the story here), but Andrew still has parrots on his mind. Every Tuesday morning he and Daddy go to a music group where one of the activities is singing songs and playing games around a big multicoloured piece of fabric – the “parrot-shoot” ๐Ÿ™‚

The toddler piรจce de resistance this week must be an incident in the communal bike shed by our flat that unfortunately I missed as I had gone inside to feed Joel, but Daddy recounted for me later. Daddy was locking up his bike as he had just got home on it, and Andrew was walking past the row of bikes wheeling his bike next to him which he’d just been riding for the past hour. Suddenly a not so subtle sound eeked out from Andrew’s nappy area. Daddy looked up and was greeted with “Daddy did it!” from Andrew who just continued toย nonchalantly walk past with his bike. “Erm, no, Andrew did it”, replied Daddy, but this was just refuted with a louder “Daddy did it!” at which point Daddy could see that he was going to lose the fight so gave up – he knows Andrew has inherited my determination.ย Thankfully everyone else in the flats seems to commute to London, so there was nobody else around at 5.30pm to witness this!

  1. Very smart boy passing the blame onto Daddy! In our house it’s the other way around with Daddy always trying to blame the kids.

    I like the idea of everything being cake too…I wonder if it would make my two more interested in trying new things!

    • Ruth says:

      I thought it was quite smart for a 2 year old too! Yes it’s him that’s decided everything is a cake – there is always cake around here though, even if he doesn’t get to eat it all ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Notmyyearoff says:

    That’s very cute and clever to try to blame Daddy, I love that photo too ๐Ÿ™‚ Andrew definitely has the right idea. I would love prettying all types of cake!

    • Ruth says:

      I guess he’s got his fascination of cake from me and Daddy, we love it, but usually when he’s in bed ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Any type of cake is good in my book! And I love that he has already started blaming his wind on others!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ruth says:

      Definitely – you can’t go wrong with cake ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, I thought it was quite smart for a 2 year old!

  4. Cathie B says:

    Funnily enough “Daddy did it” is a very common phrase in our house. I’ve even used it myself sometimes………………

    • Ruth says:

      Hehe! Yes I can imagine this phrase will be coming up more and more as Andrew grows up ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Adorable. My 2 year old calls all his food “Appy Soss” because for a while apple sauce was all that he’d eat. Now when he asks for it, I have to go through all the stuff in the fridge to figure out what kind of “appy soss” he wants. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ruth says:

      Aw, that’s cute. I read your post yesterday but couldn’t comment on my phone. I blogged a list of words that Andrew said when he was younger and some of them are very similar to what your son says ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll find the link and comment on your blog…..

  6. Love the cake thing – I’m going to try that next time my kids refuse to eat broccoli ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Ah, cake is good ๐Ÿ™‚ I wonder if I could convince my 6yo that it was vegetable cake… He might eat some without protest then! Love ‘daddy did it’ – my boys do that too ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hah my son tries to blame his Dad too!
