Our little Georgiana has one of those summer birthdays. While being able to have a swimming party is awesome, it’s kind of a bummer that her special day doesn’t fall during the school year. It’s hard to get in touch with her school friends to send birthday invites and of course getting to be the special person in the classroom is the BEST! Georgie’s teacher is exceptional though, and makes sure that all the little people get their day, even if it doesn’t fall during the school year!
Thursday was Georgie’s day to celebrate. I had a big plan to take in unfrosted cupcakes with 22 baggies of frosting and 22 little shakers of sprinkles; alas my little individual had other plans. (If you don’t know the G, she’s VERY opinionated!) (And she is the only kid I know that scrapes off the frosting and eats only the cake!) She decided she wanted the homemade hostess cupcakes because they have filling, no frosting, and they are dipped in chocolate!!
In my opinion kids are the toughest critics. They are brutally honest because they don’t know any better! So I was expecting someone to say “EEW gross” or “I don’t like chocolate”. Instead I heard Georgie’s teacher saying, “Slow down, take smaller bites!” and the kids saying “there’s something in the middle!!” and “I wish I could have another!” I was so flattered. It made my day, and so did the smile on Georgie’s face…
p.s. I got my two blog posts in for the week!!
