When you have children you have to say "no" a lot. "No we can't go to the park today, it's raining." "No, you can not eat candy right before supper." "No, do not climb that shelf!" ...etc.
Every once in awhile it's nice to be able to say yes to requests.
One of those requests today was eating lunch in the living room while watching cartoons. Such a simple thing but it made Big Sister very happy. I even got a big hug and kiss out of the deal!
Another "yes" was to make cupcakes. We have a counting book and one of the pages is counting cupcakes. Occasionally Big Sister will look at the book and when she comes to that page she asks if we can make some. Usually I say no, but today I said yes!
So I searched my beloved Pinterest App to see what kind of cupcakes would spark my interest (and what ones we had the ingredients for) and I found this recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes!
Sprinkles make everything more fun!
Look at this frosting! So light and fluffy! I had to resist eating it by the spoonfuls!
Big Sister had fun helping me stir the ingredients and she was a great help cleaning up the beaters afterwards! ;)
