Today, on this Eve of Valentines Day, I grabbed Julianna from her math lesson to help me with the trillion cupcakes that I was elected to bake for a party tomorrow. She’s such a good sport for just jumping right in with no questions asked… or perhaps it was the avoiding math thing? One can never know.
She even helped me with the clean-up which was nice because we made a decent mess.
However, they say “many hands make light work” and it’s true because we were done in no time at all. Plus, it’s nice when you really love the person you’re working with, and it’s even more sweet since it was all about Valentines preparation, I suppose.
Isa always loves to watch the happenings in the oven since it’s right at her eye level. I had to stop the cupcake machine for about 20 minutes, though, to pop in some lunch for us. She paid close attention to make sure everything was rising properly.
And even though Carah Cate was napping during the cupcake extravaganza, I did get a picture of her earlier this morning in the exersaucer that we very recently brought out for her. I believe that if she could speak, she’d say that it is her Valentine this year. She hearts it. A lot.
Now the kids are outside rescuing a caterpillar from untimely death because the temperatures have dropped so much. At least that’s what they think anyway. I’m about to go make a hot cuppa tea and sit down to tell that caterpillar that he should thank his lucky stars that a couple of kids decided to love him today. I have a feeling he might not feel that way though.
