I don't know why I thought I could talk him out of it. My Son LOVES Dora. And truthfully, it doesn't bother me that he is a bit obsessed with the cartoon. I could think of worse things. But all the party stuff looks so girly. So I tried for over a month to convince him he wanted something else. A conversation would typically go something like this.
Me browsing at pics on the computer: Ohhh Evren, look at these cakes. Do you like Spiderman?
Evren walking over to the computer: I like cake.
Me while showing him pics of various cakes on the computer: What kind of cake do you want for your Birthday? Do you want a Spiderman Cake
Me: Do you want a Super Hero Cake
Me: How about a Monster Cake?
Evren: No Mommy, I want Dora Cake!
I might manage to distract him for a brief moment, but he would always come back to it. So I gave in. It had to be Dora. So here is my attempt at a hopefully not too girly Dora Cake.
And just look at that grin :) Priceless!
Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet little Man.
