See he woke up at 6:25 am this morning, got himself dressed and went on down to the kitchen to finish up the cupcakes that we baked last night. He was taking them to school for a bake sale. Now, I am pretty sure that most moms take care of these things but not this mom. It is tax season and all I can be responsible for are the basics. In my book last minute cupcakes are not the basics. Therefore, if you want cupcakes you make them. This is no big deal around here. However, when I came down for coffee I felt a surge of pride watching my guy ice his cupcakes. And no mess to boot! I don't know where the feeling came from. Probably initally relief that I didn't have to do anything out of my normal routine and then pride because he just did it without even asking for help. It was a good feeling to have. As you parents know you have many feeling and stresses while raising your kids and every once in awhile you see a glimpse of what the child may become. Here my glimpse was responsible, self sufficient, and happy. I like that.
Then i got the look. Glimpse gone, why in the world do you need to take a picture of me making cupcakes at 6:45 am??
Help me. She is singing some song from the 90s and gushing about how wonderful I am.
