Sometimes it is so bittersweet when the kids do things on their own that just scream to me how much older they have grown. However, I cannot deny the happiness that comes with a fresh baked batch of cupcakes, complete with frosting (that I didn't even have to get out of my chair to work on).
Now if she would just take some interest in cleaning up her messes? OK, so maybe it does make me happy to still be needed for something.
It also makes me happy that I didn't even get in trouble for sneaking a piece of unfrosted cake. I love how she just frosted the rest like she didn't notice.
