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.
