Before coming into work yesterday morning, I made cupcakes.
This was not planned. It was completely spontaneous.
It was my youngest son, Theo’s, first day of summer break.
During his morning adventures in the kitchen, Theo found Mickey Mouse cupcake liners and an idea sprouted in his head.
My little boy absolutely loves to cook.
Theo looked at me with his big brown eyes and begged me to make cupcakes with him.
I had a hundred reasons why I didn’t have time to bake anything yesterday morning, but none of
those reasons were solid enough to hold.
So, I found time to bake with my little son.
His eyes danced and his smile was contagious as he poured ingredients and watched the mixer turn.
Everything was going well ...
That is, until the new dog, Luke, stole one of the Mickey Mouse cupcake liners.
Theo took that offense personally.
The chase was on.
Theo ran after Luke yelling to give the paper back.
Luke thought that this was a great game and ran so Theo could chase him, all the while chewing on the fun, new paper in his mouth.
I joined in to try and get the situation under control.
In short order, poor Luke was caught and I was able to retrieve a badly mangled, half chewed cupcake liner from his mouth.
I realized a couple of things after this incident:
1. It is time to leave a leash on Luke while he is in the house so I have an easy way to catch him when he steals contraband.
2. It is time to work on Leave it, Drop it, and Come with Luke.
3. Theo is serious about his cupcakes.
