Last week Lydia had a sudden request to bake cupcakes. Of course this pregnant body agreed with her that baking cupcakes sounded like an excellent idea. I wish we could say we made the cake batter from scratch, but it was spring funfetti boxed cake mix. And I didn’t make any healthy substitutions either. Just plain old bad for you cake mix. And it was good.
I have been slowly but surely learning to be a hands off mother when it comes to activities. The poor girl has no siblings to distract me yet so when it comes to cooking, crafts, and the such I am right there making sure the messes aren’t too big and that the craft comes out looking decent or how it’s “supposed” to look. When am I going to learn? Lydia needs hands on experience to learn and I take that away from her. This time I really tried to not care about messes or getting the batter perfectly in those baking cups. The only lesson learned here today was to not let a three year old try to crack eggs just yet. I let her lick probably way too much batter for all of her hard work. But don’t worry, no one got sick here!
And guess what???!!!! Gregory is taking Lydia and I to St. George for the weekend! Could not be more excited to soak up the sun. It’s supposed to be in the 70’s. Heavenly weather here we come.
