As promised, I cut the baby farm animal post short to spare any potential readers from an opinion post. There are so many blogs brimming with opinions on everything that occurs under the sun, and I know that the world is not waiting for my opinion on anything. However, I had some thoughts about the pressures that parents (or I alone) feel to provide our children with the perfect everything, including birthday parties. I realized when I was posting about the bunny cake, that if I'm keeping a blog, and writing or talking about our thoughts and feelings are considered to be cathartic exercises, I should probably write about my thoughts on my mommy blog, duh! (The light bulb can be a little slow to come on sometimes.) It makes sense, because if anyone out there thinks similarly and also wants to share, this could be a place to do it. Anyway, this is what was on my mind when I posted that one:
WARNING: Do not open this post if your heart cannot handle adorable kids playing with nearly as adorable farm animals!
Update: So, you apparently liked this cake! I recently found it on Pinterest! After following the link, I discovered that it has been featured on websites, "borrowed" by many, and viewed nearly 4,000 times here (on the blog I quit shortly after starting 5 yrs ago)! Of course when they are created from my vision, I only see the flaws in what I make. However, as much as I love looking at other people's cakes, it made me realize that people might actually want to see them. So I'm catching up on the blog!
