Life goes on...with a little indulgence.

Now that James is a mobile little man, he is just about covered in scrapes and bruises. I knew that this time would come. Yesterday James had big fall - from an elevated surface, to the hard wood floor, head first. It scared me to death. Was he okay? Did he break any bones? Will he have a concussion? I HATE that this kind of thing is going to happen all the time now.

I was heart-broken listening to my baby sobbing and shaking for what seemed like forever. I HAD to make him feel better. I would do whatever it took to see him calm down and smile again. So, I did what I do best - I threw food at the problem - old reliable. As soon as he calmed down I left him with Shane and drove as fast as I could to my favorite bakery to get James a cupcake - his very first one.

He was intrigued.

What is this?

So, he gave it a try.

Oh yeah.

Then he got serious - he's just like his Mama, bless him.

Ding Ding Ding!

Dad needed a cupcake recovery too.

And, obviously I brought out the Big Guns for myself + one very large Diet Coke.

Of course, I don't intend to continue this kind of behavior. I don't want to teach my kids that food will solve their problems. But, doesn't all this talk of cupcakes put a little bounce in your step?

Who are you kidding food solves lots of problems...just wait until you get your first phone call from the principal's office. Dark Chocolate is the only solution.
