My granddaughter is 16 today! (Zowie's daughter, Pretty Baby) Last night we baked cupcakes for her to take to school today. She wanted to be with uncool grandma and bake. Because I have one billion different kind of sprinkles, no doubt, but it was great. She talked and laughed until about 11 - I was almost late for work, but it was entirely worth it. I just kept looking at her and thinking about how beautiful she is and special she is. I want to hold her in my heart just as she was last night, laughing and funny and just incredibly her. I am so lucky.
Of course I was so busy, I had to use a rice cake as the cake of the day! You'll have that!
