Today’s my birthday; but my party was last night. I requested a low key pizza party with a rollicking game of Apples to Apples Junior. A friend assisted ML and her friend in pulling it off. Plus some unexpected roses and a huge cupcake.
Today my preschool story time friends serenaded me with a jolly rendition of “Happy Birthday” after I read them books about cake and cupcakes.
Cake Girl by David Lucas – With a birthday so close to Halloween, this book really appeals to me. A witch “bakes” a cake girl and plans to eat her. With love and kindness, Cake Girl saves herself while helping the witch learn how to be a friend.
Cupcake by Charise Mericle Harper – It’s hard being a plain old vanilla cupcake with plain old icing. Until, you meet a plain old green candle who also has flashy siblings… number candle, stripy candle, super-long candle. Suddenly, plain old green candle realizes a topping is all cupcake needs to go from ordinary to spectacular. Will he be able to find the perfect topping? Spaghetti, stinky cheese, a squirrel. It’s not looking promising. Or is it?
