This morning on the way to work there was a doe and her fawn trying to cross the street and cars kept zipping by. I stopped and let them get across, as they reached the other side of the street the sprinklers came on. At first the doe shied away, but finally walked through it. The fawn was jumping and racing through the sprinklers, back and forth...so cute. Started off my day just perfect!

Fiona, how cool to see deer on your way to work, especially frolicking little ones. That would sure make me smile, too!

I had a lot of smiles this week but the biggest one today was at the Kid's Day Camp.

We served the blue cupcakes and one of the leaders told me of a conversation between two of her kids.
Kid 1 "Wow, these are really good. Do you remember the Panda ones last year?"
Kid 2 "Yeah, and these are even better. I wonder what the cupcake will be next year....bet it is even more awesome!"

Out of the mouths of babes I guess I will be making cupcakes for all the last day snacks from now one My heart soars when I can make kids/people happy with my creations!

Bringing smiles and happiness to kids is one of life's rewards.

For years I was bitter that I didn't have children of my own. Instead I get to to spend my time with everyone else's children. It isn't the same in many ways, but in others it is even better!

I am nobody's Mother, but everyone's mother. I got to be a Mom again today, asking the nice young man who bought Shrek's motorcycle if he had a helmet. He rolled his eyes and said, "Ma'am, you sound just like my Mom." I said, "Thank you." and he did have a helmet.
