Red Velvet

I made red velvet cupcakes for a co-worker's birthday and squirreled a couple away for the wee ones, provided they ate their vegetables. One bite, fully chewed and swallowed and thoughtfully considered is all we ask. Sarah eats most anything but Kate, now the antithesis of her baby self, will taste almost nothing. Kate did not get her cupcake (we saved it for later). I told Sarah she could choose from the two cupcakes. Her face lit up and her delighted grin spread as rapidly as water on a cheap paper towel as she contemplated the plate of 2 cupcakes. She looked up at me, decision made. "I want them both."

Refusing to eat even one bite.

Destroying just one cupcake

I'll let you decide your own definition.

You should have given her both cupcakes. "Here's your cupcake, and here's Kate's cupcake."
Oh man, the shear shock of the decision and its consequences would have been epic.

The medication that would have been needed to pacify Kate.

@Chris - is it that one of the little kid licking that pig's snout that I've received 12 times in the past week? So crazy...

@Keith - Jeremiah told her he was going to split her cupcake with me and she stood her ground. She refused to give Jeremiah a goodnight hug and kiss, though.

Kate looks like a hyena ripping the flank off a zebra. (If you can do wet paper towel similes, I can do bloody flesh similes.)

LMP said...

yeah, alright, I'll give yout that. Except that's Sarah. Nice work, Uncle Kevin.
