Those two words are so much more meaningful when you have a PA child. Actually, when it is not our own party, it is usually not a fun experience for us.
We just attended a small family party at my sister's house. Her mother-in-law's tradition is to bring this huge fancy chocolate cake from an expensive bakery in Miami to all family functions. She is very sweet and very old and I am sure she has no clue about PA and cakes.
I felt very bad that both my sisters children, along with the rest of the family, could imbibe on this treat while my son had to sit at another table by himself eating a popsicle. My son handled it well but I was sad.
I am thinking that the next time we are invited to a party at her house I am going to give her a choice. She can have a cake that everyone can eat or we will come after the cake is served.
What do you guys think? Somehow I just know there are going to be a lot of stories on this.
As an aside, I usually send in Hostess cupcakes to school. He is not allowed to eat anything that does not come from home and whenever there is a party the teacher gives him one of those. We usually don't go to parties because we are too busy. But I cannot get out of a family party!!
