My sweet middle child turned 3 yesterday, and we celebrated with family on Saturday. We had pizza, root beer, and cupcakes- all his requests.
The frosting on the cupcakes was destroyed when I added the red food coloring, making it look bloody, pinkish, and overall unappetizing. The birthday boy spilled root beer on his shirt every.time.he.took.a.drink, and sported the goose egg he managed to get on Valentine's Day (while he was pretending to be a dog).
It took him about 3 tries to blow out his single candle, and when his daddy got this picture, I had just seen spit fly onto the cupcakes.That's why I'm thankful for The Nester's reminder that "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful."
