really good day
Yesterday started with Dave getting up at 4:30 and heading out the door for a day trip to visit a client in DC. About an hour later, at 5:30, Andrew stands by my bed and says, "Mommy, I'm really tired. I want to sleep." His voice is snuffled. His head is hot. He is sick.
I've told you this before, and I'll tell you again: I LOVE it when Andrew is sick. I LOVE it. There is something about him being sick that really takes the edge off. And by that I mean his edge. Things that normally irritate him, don't bother him anymore. He is cuddly and agreeable and charming. Him being sick reminds me of myself after a glass of wine. Mellow, slow and happy.
So we spent our day doing Children's Tylenol shots, watching Little Einsteins DVDs (Thanks, Aunt Tara! He's hooked!) and deciding what makes a better tissue: a handkerchief or the couch. The couch is maintaining a strong lead. And I spent some time in the kitchen making Carrot Cake Muffins with Cream Cheese filling.
Though, I have to say, Mama V did some research about the difference between muffins and cupcakes. Turns out it's all in the ratio of flour::sugar::oil. And it makes me wonder if I have ever really made a muffin.
So, for breakfast this morning? Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese filling. So good.
