Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Betty Crocker?

Okay, so yesterday my darling son was watching TV and came across a commercial for, I believe, a Betty Crocker cake decorating set. Now, while I'm no Betty, I did promise myself that each year I would make the kids cakes, I think I get better each year?

Hunter's 1st was an Elmo cake.

He had a regular chocolate cake for his 2nd.

Thomas for his 3rd!

Lightening McQueen for his 4th.
And this year is (was) supposed to be Spiderman.
Chelsea had brownie ice cream cakes for her 1st,
...And Dora for her 2nd!
Anyway, after watching the commercial, my son asks me if I would like one of the kits. I explained that I already had most of the stuff that was in it. He told me the Betty Crocker one was really easy to use. I explained that often in commercials they say things that may not always be true to try and get you to buy things. I also explained that the "supplies" I had were enough for now, adding "Don't you like the cakes Mommy makes for your birthdays?" He replied, "They taste great, mom, but they don't look as good as those." referring to the ones on TV.
So, should I really spend the time to make his cake...or just buy a nicer looking one? That will be my pondering today.
Wine at 5?
Tisdale, Merlot
A great wine I stumbled across for $3 a bottle!
