Cake Disaster Party

she loves me "anyway." It didn't phase her one bit that the plan was to bake a pretty, pink strawberry frosted, double-layer cake for a special un-birthday party day (we sometimes have those) only to have it turn out..in pieces. It didn't even make her flinch. I remember wanting to throw it out and she wanted to frost it. She said, "Come on Mom, it will still taste good and we can still put candles in it!" as if that was the very best part. This photo is from late last summer and while looking through my photos today on my computer I stumbled upon it and it hit me that right now she is loving me full force, completely...with no judgment's and no if's, and's or but's...she is in my court and in my corner. And then I had the thought that it might not always be like that. Feel like this. I love her so much and hope against all hope that she will always feel even just a little bit this way. That she'll love me "anyway" and despite all the future cake's that don't turn out or the day's that don't go just quite as they were planned.

Wow, I know exactly what you mean. I hope my babies will always keep on loving me too, even after they find out I'm not perfect. Have a great day!

Lovely thoughts and fab Photo too. kids at this age are so optamistic about every thing, oh if only we could bottle it and give it them back when they need it through their teenage yrs (it's usually a dificult time at some point)
