Ghost Cupcakes

How stinking CUTE is that????

I am not sure what I was thinking when I said "Oh yeah I make cakes, I can totally make the cupcakes for the class Halloween party and be in charge of one of the games (more on that later)."  But I did say that so I decided to keep it simple and do 24 all the same and just do these ghost because they were quick and easy to do.    Seriously though, sometimes I think I forget that I have a crazy baby who gets into EVERYTHING (he discovered the stairs this week), children who need CONSTANT attention ("Mommy I am hungry, Mommy I need help, Mommy I have to be in the same room as you at all times... don't even try to go to the bathroom"), and a house to clean (whole cow, we are now to the point that if I don't do at least two loads of dishes every day I get seriously behind).  I think I need to starting editing the things I do and not just always saying "Oh yeah I can do that."  The problem is that I want to do that.  I want to create.  I want to do fun things with my kids.  I want to say "Oh yeah, I can do that."  

Hmmm...  Isn't this the problem every adult faces.  Balancing what I have to do with what I want to do and making sure I can find joy in both places.

I am not sure how a post about a cute little cupcake turned into my struggles with balance, but there you have it.   Maybe it just because it is after 11pm I still have more dishes and laundry to do before I go to bed and I am on my computer typing about a cupcake while Project Runway plays in the background because that is what I want to be doing.  


  1. Everyone needs the same thing- a place that is theirs, something that we love- and especially moms need something that STAYS done! (at least I do.!) You're not alone. And, it will get easier, and eventually more time will come to do more of what we want to do- in the mean time- hang in there! ;)

  2. That is to stinking cute! Love them!
