1. I didn’t have to bake the cake myself. As my cousin said to me today, she can’t wait until she can tell her daughter, “Cook for me, my minion!” Today the cake, tomorrow DINNER! I’m seeing many a night off from dinner duty in the future and it looks extra real good, baby.
2. I’m thrilled that the kids are wanting to cook (even if Kaden’s only contribution to this particular project was sprinkles) – maybe they won’t be as useless as I was when I got married and only knew how to boil water, pour cereal, make cheese-toast and cook hamburger helper. Already I think both of them have far surpassed my skills at 20. In fact, on occasion they will take turns making me breakfast – cheese toast and chocolate milk. That’s multi-tasking, folks. When you are under 11 you should get allowance for stuff like that.
3. She decorated the cake for ME and her dad. Always a brown-nosing plus… especially when done on any form of chocolate.
4. She made me a card to go with it. And everyone knows I’m a greeting card junkie. Home made is even better. Maybe she needs an Etsy shoppe?
I’m sure she’ll post about her cake on her blog, too. But not today. Because I’m all blogged out. Four blog posts in one day is enough to make anyone NEED cake. In case you wanted to check out those other blog posts, you can do so at these sites:
See ya, round.
