Cake and Motherhood…that’s my thing

Although I admit I wasn’t initially thrilled to be looking for a job – as I feel strongly that motherhood is a 24/7 job on its own and those of you who work full time are my heroes – I was pleasantly surprised today when I went to a local bakery to play around in their kitchen for a couple of hours.  Not only was the staff friendly, but the position involves lots of my favorite aspect of pastry, which is cake decorating.  I did a cake with The Little Mermaid on it and I didn’t get to finish her because I had to pick up Luke from school.  I don’t like to leave work partially finished, but I think they liked what I did.  Hopefully today’s efforts will result in a job.  My generous and devoted mother-in-law offered to watch the kids one of the days I would be working.

When I picked up Luke I said, “Guess what?  Today I made a cake with The Little Mermaid on it!”

“Did you bring it home?”

“Well, no, actually I did it at work.”


“Yeah, Mommy is going to be working a little bit.”

He frowned, “I don’t want you to work.”


“I just want you to stay home forever and I want to stay home from school forever, too.”

“What if when I go to work, Grandma picks you up from school and stays with you until Daddy gets home?”

“Ok.  I like Grandma.”

Good to know I’m interchangeable with other family members.
