The Crazy Things Dads Do

My kids hate it when Little Disney pulls out his feeding tube because they know I tend to do crazy dad things when that happens — like insist on taking photos of all the children together. For some strange reason, I like taking a photograph of the toddler when he doesn’t have something sticking out of his nose. I’m crazy that way. The kids better watch out because I might do something even crazier — like kiss and hug them. And if I mutate into a completely loony dad, I might even tell the kids something crazy like I love them.

Dairy Free, Egg Free Birthday Cake

The Little Monkey and I baked Little Disney a birthday cake on Saturday (his birthday was last Wednesday, but he was sick and didn’t stop vomiting until Saturday). Because my son is allergic to eggs and dairy, we used Duncan Hines cake mix and frosting. Unlike Betty Crocker, some of the Duncan Hines cake mixes and frosting do not contain milk. In place of eggs, we used Ener-G Egg Replacer (free of gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, egg, yeast, soy, nut, low protein, rice). I bought the Ener-G Egg Replacer at Whole Foods, but you also order it from Amazon if you can’t find it. BTW, everyone carry Betty Crocker cake mixes and frosting, but only a handful of stores carry Duncan Hines cake mixes and frosting. And when the stores do stock them, they only carry a few flavors (why do they stock lemon cake mix, but not lemon frosting?).
