The Battle Against Sugar

The battle in the Lim household against refined sugar officially ended on April 20, 2008.

We'd done a pretty good job for 2 years, 8 months of keeping the girls away from sugary cakes, cookies and candies.

However, today the girls ate birthday cake and for the first time actually seemed to enjoy it. They finished off the party with a huge Rice Krispie square. What made it even worse is that Katherine followed the cake around for a good five minutes before the candles were even lit, waiting for her piece of cake.

Here are some photos of the sugar binge and the birthday party, just to officially note the date of surrender:

Caroline wouldn't look up at me because she was afraid I would take the cake away!
