Adult Onset Only Child Syndrome

Happy Birthday, Molly!

Molly’s birthday is coming up. As usual, I am planning it. I like planning parties for Molly because she makes outrageous requests, such as “I want a clambake!” (2008) and “I want to make people dress up as their own ethnic stereotypes!” (2009) and “I want to go to a bar and listen to live music like a normal person, but when we’re at the bar I want to climb up a ladder.” (2010).

Her party is still a week away, so I assume there will be plenty of bizarre requests lobbied at me over the next few days.  Here’s a sampling of what she requested this morning:

1. Costume party
2. Pony rides
3. a Barbie cake
4. cake pops
5. homemade cake pops
6. green tea cake pops
7. reindeer shaped cake pops

Molly:  Here.  Learn:

Molly:  i want this one: http://www.bakerella.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/02_cake-pops-reindeer.jpg
Claire:  It’s not Christmas!
Molly: i want the antelope ones. or reindeer. whatever
Claire: nope, antelope themed
Molly:  dammit
Claire:   your birthday party has just become antelope themed
Molly:  what does that MEAN
Claire: i’m not sure.
Molly:  can we switch to cantelope?
melon balls!

    […] sold out…  I’m sure I can’t be the only person in the world to get them confused when requesting their likeness on a cake pop.  Sigh.  If only there was a scientist or something to explain the difference….  Wait, is […]
