{Pink Cupcakes}

January 28, 2011

I am a true romantic at heart...I have day-dreams about almost every situation imaginable and play it all out like cupcakes...the perfectly pink frosted kind.

This kind of mind set can leave you at times a tad disappointed.

Last night I was rocking Ainsleigh, putting her to bed. Sing Over Me (the sweetest cd ever if you have littles) playing in the background & Aiden came to the doorway. He is usually very preoccupied playing during this time of the evening but today has been an extra "im needy for you mama" kind of days. (which of course I secretly love, smiley face)....so I whispered to him that he was welcome to join if he was quiet. He gently crawled up into my arms and rest his head. Then he started softly humming to the music. Rocking both my littles. It was perfect & beautiful...it was a fairytale moment in the midst of a crazy, and very (im)perfect life.

So 2011....
I want to trade in the expectation of a fairytale life for the gratefulness of my fairytale moments
I will take them gladly. The (im)perfect life and all.

I will take my perfectly pink frosted cupcakes....whenever they may come.



  1. CaSeY- I had to let you know, your message here really resonated with me. I LOVE what you said, "I want to be grateful for my fairytale moments and not expect a fairytale life." So true.

    You are a beautiful example to your little ones.


  2. I know this is older, but this is my most favorite post of yours ever :) You have SUCH a lovely, lovely heart and this speaks to me because I do the exact same thing! We are dreamers and optimists! And I am slowly learning to accept the little frosted cupcakes also! <3
