the preparations begin...

Cupcake class: 4 weeks x 3 designs each week x 20 kids = 240 cupcakes = one sucker mom= $500 profit for the PTO= trips to 5 stores in search of all the necessary candies and cupcake construction supplies = yields vats of candy and junk in my dining room.
As you can see it's taking it's toll on my kids and my #2 is put to task demonstrating his preschool classifying skills acting as the official Mike and Ike color separator.

1. finally finding black licorice ropes 2. copy machines 3. deeper sleep

You are just too nice!

I'm glad you're grateful for deeper sleep... you must be chalking up a few more REMs during your short nights. I'd love a tutorial on your cupcake class... or at least a few posts on the how-tos and finished products! Sounds like fun.

I don't know how you do all this. You are one busy woman.
I think I need a nap after all this.

LL said...

if I donated cupcakes each week, would you use them?
sorry I skipped out last night, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed...science fair, homework, bills to be paid, dirty house...you know the drill.
Plus I have Friday out, so I have to pace myself :)
Hope you had a good night and a GREAT morning!

I've missed you! Still computerless...can't wait to see you Friday!

Christy said...

Sounds like you would have a nice group to teach (after all the school stuff wears down of course)...being in RS I have to ask! Good luck! Do you resist licking fingers?

How do you avoid sneaking the candy throughout the day? I know that when I am tired and life is crazy busy sweets look extra good!
I am sure the kiddos love having you help out!
