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."
