I Almost Tried Red Velvet Funnel Cake

Dear Baby,

I understand that you like fruit, and you’ve introduced peaches, pears, and nectarines to my regular diet. I like real fruit, too, but I’ve really been enjoying your other fruit cravings:

  • Candy orange slices
  • Fruit Rollups
  • Strawberry preserves
  • Orange pineapple juice
  • Popsicles
  • Cherry Pop-Tarts

All of these are great ways to get my fruit servings for the day.

I was a little disappointed in you last Thursday at our local fair. Don’t get me wrong: your choice of a homemade apple dumpling topped with ice cream was deeeee-licious. Plus it counts as a fruit.


And when presented with options like deep-fried Snickers, Twinkies, Pop-Tarts, and Oreos, I understand why you passed since I’ve tasted all of those before.

However, I am a little disappointed in you for not choosing Red Velvet funnel cake with cream cheese icing. What were you thinking?

At next year’s fair, you’ll be about 6 months old. You better be up for some solid food by then. We have a reputation to uphold.


Your Mama
