Dear Lord, what a glimpse I got. I was trying to spend time with her, clean, bake, and still shower and look presentable. I've seen TV shows and met women who can do it. They look amazing! Their houses are perfectly ordered. They violate thermodynamic laws of entropy! It's disorder to order.
From a scientific standpoint this is NOT POSSIBLE! I tried. Those women must be TV magic or aliens. Or perhaps it takes years of practice. That's not to say I didn't complete some of my tasks, but all were not accomplished or all were only half done. How do they do it and make it look so easy? How is it that our society shuns these individuals as if they don't have 'real' jobs? Let me tell you, before you DARE insult a stay at home parent, try it yourself for a few weeks. Some people can't even handle their own kids that long. It's challenging. However, it was a truly rewarding experience and I only did it for a few days.
One thing we did she got a big kick out of was frost some leftover strawberry cupcakes I had frozen for this exact purpose. I placed some purple buttercream frosting I had from a couple of days before in a pastry bag with a 2D tip. I've also heard you can place the same tip in a big plastic bag you snip a corner off of. I've even done the work with a smaller star tip when I didn't own a 2D. The result of this is hydrangea cupcakes. Yep, the beautiful 'snowball' flower as we called it when we were kids.
|She was so proud!|
|Isn't this just the cutest!?|
|These cuppies would look even better with a mix of lighter purple and blue or pale green and pink to mimmick real hydrangea flowers.|
|Oddly, she really just wanted the icing off them.|
