Double Digits

Tomorrow, as I have been multiply reminded, YG attains the big 1-0. I was informed today that I can bring the cupcakes I hadn't even thought of making to her class tomorrow at 1:15. This does not excuse me, of course, from making a birthday cake. And Friday the kid is Scout of the Day, which means we bring snack (cupcakes, of course). And Saturday is her birthday sleepover: cake required, naturally.

I may never bake again.

Keep making those sweets, dear.

But why oh why do you have to make cupcakes for the school if the child didn't ask for this in a timely fashion? She is almost 10.

Yes I know you will do this. But I'm just saying...

pcWish the girl a happy day. A present is on the way...

Indeed, bringing cupcakes to class does not excuse you from making a birthday cake. And taking the birthday child out to dinner does not obviate a party that Saturday.

What about this don't you understand?

I must make the cupcakes because the child has promised them to her classmates, and renegging would result in a loss of face.

We all indulge our children in various ways. Mine inveighs bitterly about the cruelty of a work in which she is not permitted to have a GameBoy. Cupcakes are a small thing to ask (by her lights anyway).
