Cake Date

Last week I had an evening meeting and left the family with some dinner and a chocolate bundt cake for a special treat. When I got home I found two lone piece put away on a plate. Joseph came running down the stairs, "Mom, are you ready for our cake date?"

The boy who loves chocolate about as much as anything saved his piece and mine so that we could eat it together. So we sat at the table at 9 pm and had our first official cake date. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Joseph some day you'll want to take a very special girl out on a date. What do you think you'll do?

Joseph: Eat....Talk....Hmmm......Count Money?

Me: What will you eat?

Joseph: Chocolate, of course! And maybe pizza.

Me: What will you talk about?

Joseph: Wall-e, my inventions, the Bible....

Me: Will you kiss her?

Joseph: No way!!

Me: Will you hold her hand?

Joseph: Only if you say I can. *smile*

The big happening of this past week was contained in a little package we received on the doorstep. Joseph had saved all of his gift money for this item. Originally, he sent it with Grandma and Grandpa to Disney World last month with high hopes. They couldn't find it there, so we bid on ebay. He spent all of that he had and couldn't be happier.

Meet i-dance Wall-e.

"Don't worry, Mom, Wall-e will pick up the trash in his room."

Since his arrival Wall-e has had a birthday party which consisted of Wall-e shaped sugar cookies (we were making hearts), a hand made pinata filled with old batteries and various other festive activities. He also now has his own cardboard room. I think he's here to stay. I'm dreading the day that little hands get a hold of him. I guess I'll have to find a Wall-e hospital when that happens:)

That cake date is precious!!! My son has a Wall-E that he got for Christmas - he takes care of that thing like it's a real person! And little sister is NOT allowed to touch him! : ) He even wraps Wall-E up in his own blanket at night.

I've got one that loves Wall-E too. I love it when they save for something. It makes it so much more special to them.
