Am I losing it?

by Elizabeth on August 17, 2013

So Thursday night after another nap time I spent pinning away, I decided to make these fish tacos. They were a hit!

As a parent, I can honestly say each phase of development gets better and better (minus the 12-15 months stage? that one was hard!) Is 21 months too young to do housework? Absolutely not. And he even went and found this himself! I asked him what he was doing and his reply was, “got the buggie” aka cleaning the bugs off my floor.

For being such a good little helper daddy and I took him swimming after nap time. This face brings me joy!

I also stopped at a new little place called Cupcakes Etc. by our house yesterday. This one had a nutella filling and a hazelnut frosting. I decided I’m either A. Only buying cupcakes from Sprinkles from now on, (both places this week were a miss) or B. Opening my own dessert shop. Not kidding, I am seriously contemplating it. Anyone want to go into business with me?? ;-)

Before I knew it people were throwing more cupcakes at me and you know I didn’t complain! We went to a gender reveal party last night and I think I’m losing my 6th sense

I totally said girl and Joe said boy.

I love that pool picture, too! And those tacos look good. You’ve been posting a lot of delicious meals lately. I need to start looking for recipes on Pinterest too…

You can send that little guy over here any time…plenty of buggies for him to get! :)

Hm…when it comes to cupcakes, stick with what you know is good. Don’t mess with success! And…I highly recommend self-employment…although it’s much harder for me to accidentally eat all my profits, than it would be for a cupcake shop… =)

Luke loves the vacuum – we even got him a play vacuum. I wish he was big enough to use the real thing! Maybe in a few months. . . ;) And you let me know when you open your own cupcake place – I’ll come visit for sure!!

Noah is adorable! I am constantly showing your pics of him to my mom, and she said I will love being a mom because I will blog and take pictures all the time. I seriously can’t get over how cute Noah was “picking up the buggies”. :D

I am SO happy to hear that every stage of development is better! :) Your son’s a little older than mine, so I take that to mean good things are on the way!

I’ll go into business with you! As long as you can pick the flavors and/or bake and don’t let me eat them all. I am good on the business front….not so good on the baking front (but I do excel at treat tasting!).

Love the picture of Noah and his blue frosting lips! Your fish tacos look a lot better than the ones I tried to make a few weeks ago! Mine were tasty, but not pretty!

Mmmm cupcakes (when done correctly). Texas is in sore need of a Sweet Tooth Fairy. If you open one, I’ll be your first customer :)

I thought the whole point of having kids was to make them do our dirty work?!? haha kidding…kind of. If Nia begs me to clean floors, I won’t deny her that pleasure ;)

The picture of Noah with icing all over his face is priceless! That’s probably what I look like when I eat cupcakes too. ;-)
