Funfetti Cake Waffles

12 years ago today my life drastically changed. There was a baby. And he was mine. And I had to, like, take care of him and stuff.

It was crazy, man. It still is crazy, if we’re being honest.

12 years of being a mama. It’s an amazing thing.

12 years with the absolute sweetest little boy I’ve ever met. I’m always telling people what a great kid he is, but I don’t think they fully get it. Really, you guys, GREATEST KID EVER.

I love him to pieces, is what I’m trying to say.

So, to make his birthday extra special, I served him up some Funfetti Cake Waffles for breakfast. With a big blob of ice cream and a healthy drizzle of chocolate syrup, natch.

His day is off to a pretty good start.

Happy Birthday, Elijah. Love you always, no matter what.
