Even though me and hubby are planners at work, when it comes to planning the house hold we are not doing it at all. So, there’s no grocery day planned for us. We just go grocery shopping once or twice a week, whenever we “think” it’s time to do so. Last night we went grocery shopping for fruits, veggies, milk, eggs, meat ( I guess everybody knows what grocery shopping means, :).Silly me!) We go as a family, so our two kids are joining us and lately they started to fill the supermarket cart with whatever they feel like having. Junk, most of it, but healthy food, too. Just in front of the supermarket there are two bins with watermelon. It’s the second time my son, almost 2 and half years young, reminds me to buy watermelon. Right after the entrence there’s the fruit section. Because of a missunderstanding from last week’s grocery shopping when I thought hubby bought strawberries, but , in fact, he didn’t, he made sure to buy some this time. Next to the strawberries there are the sponge flan cakes which I never tried, but my son took one and said : “This is my birthday cake!” (he’s birthday is December 8th), so we bought it. And that’s how we kept going and adding to our cart things that we never knew we’d buy, because, now, my two kids are shopping for us.
When we got home the unpacking was done by the two of them also, and when my son saw the sponge flan cake he started singing: Bonne Fete, Luca, Bonne Fete, Luca… He begged me to make the cake right away, but in the end I promised him I would make it the next morning and he was happy with having a slice of watermelon.
And here’s the “birthday cake”… Kids are so much fun, SOMETIMES!
