school shopping for baking and decorating a cake for pack meeting
funny shirt for decorating the cake with a skull
the shirt I picked for decorating the cake with Olympic rings made of M&M's
the compromise for..........................
well the compromise didn't work so well this time. I had already bought everything for the Olympic Rings cake while Owen was still at school, hoping he would go along with my idea, since they don't have ready-to-frost frosting in BLACK for his skull idea. When he came home, I pitched my idea. Isn't it great, the Olympics are going on right now, yeah white frosting, even better M&M's. VICTORY!!!!, or so I thought. The only thing he wanted to change, was to make the rings out of FIVE DIFFERENT COLORS OF FROSTING. Sorry charlie, I already bought the pre-colored M&M's (how handy that they are in the colors of the Olympic rings, never mind orange and that you have to pretend that brown is really black) and was not on any terms heading to Wal-mart at 4 in the afternoon to buy more frosting. You know the rest, you never blah blah blah, ever blah blah listen to your kids. I am giving the meanest mom a run for her money this week.
Needless to say, I won. Once it was time to frost he had perked up a bit. And once we were putting the M&M's on the cake, he was all for it. I did have to be a bit of a dictator and make sure we put them on "M" side down. After all, Mars & Co. wasn't shelling out any cash for advertising on our cake.
