As I indicated in my last post, Julia had a birthday coming up. In addition to a party at our house, I'd also planned to make something for her to bring in and share with her class.
When it was Alex's birthday in kindergarten, he asked me to make brownies. I asked Julia what she wanted, and she said she'd like cupcakes. White cupcakes with pink frosting. I suggested we have a couple of colors of frosting (thinking of the boys in the class), and she agreed with that. So all set. A batch of cupcakes, some frosting and some food coloring and I'd be all set.
And then I happened to be talking to another mom with a daughter whose birthday is soon, and we moved onto the topic of bringing in goodies for the class. I told her I was making cupcakes, and she said "Um, you might want to check on that."
