Lesson Learned – A Maniac’s Birthday


Maniac #2 celebrated his 4th birthday recently and I learned another lesson.

What happens when you give a 4 year old control over his birthday breakfast and birthday dinner party food?

You end up making cheese pizzas at 6am for breakfast. To be enjoyed with doughnuts and juice.


Then the family gets treated to a dinner of pancakes and breakfast casserole.


Lesson learned – That’s why we call them maniacs!
