We celebrated a birthday this month, and there is a little tradition at your school to bring cupcakes or a cake to school on your birthday. We are not a traditional family, so we made cookies. Yes, we always do things outside the box. You love cupcakes, but are not a fan of the icing. You like one of the icing but not the other, and you couldn’t describe to me which one you liked. Rather than set up an icing taste testing to make sure I get the right icing, I went left of field. Cookies! Motherhood has taught me this, that sometimes we need to go around the problem. I don’t always get it right but in this case I thought I would be ok.
I baked the cookies while you were at school, and you iced and decorated the cookies. It took us a little longer than we expected. We ran out of sprinkles, and we needed to run to the supermarket. When we got back, I needed to make another batch of icing. By this time, the light had faded and our dining table doesn’t get much natural light. I don’t like using a flash, and I didn’t want to turn on the lights, so we lit the candles. And that is how we have images of you decorating cookies by candlelight. A problem solved by going around it.
