This week both my boys had birthdays! AcrobatBoy is now 4 years old. BabyBoy is 1 year old. Time certainly flies. Early in the week AcrobatBoy asked a question that nearly broke my mommy heart, "Mommy, am I big enough for cupcakes now?". For those of you who don't know, he is deathly allergic to eggs. That means nothing comes in our house that has eggs in it. No cake, no doughnuts, no scrambled eggs, no cookies, no mayo, no to a hundred different things - including cupcakes. Now it used to be worse. He used to be really allergic to cows milk too. But he outgrew that. And I have learned to cook and bake a lot of things from scratch without eggs. But cupcakes just don't hold together without egg. I have perfected a muffin recipe though, and so we compromised. We made mupcakes. They are my pumpkin muffins with chocolate icing and sprinkles.
Everyone had some.
Everyone liked them.
Except AcrobatBoy .....
After two bites he asked for a plain muffin. And to think I was worried he was feeling deprived! Ha!
Today we had a party with some family and a few friends over to play and eat ice cream sundaes with us. To get ready this morning we made a cool space mural that the kids used to play pin the space shuttle in the universe. Technically they had space shuttles, rocketships, UFOs, and sattelites. Here is our masterpiece after the game. Tomorrow or the next day we will move it to the boy's bedroom as a wall decoration.
And while we had it we took a few quick pictures of the kids and I.
