My Secret Life As A...

Pancake Artist! My girls are big fans of pancakes and they are particularly yummy if made into shapes/animals/letters etc. So it was no surprise this morning when Maya asked for pancakes for breakfast. I asked her what shapes she wanted and she asked for a birthday cake, balloons, streamers etc. So here she is with her birthday breakfast.

The Birthday Girl

Can you believe she is 4? Well I'm off to make pancakes in the shapes of birthday cakes, balloons and streamers as requested.

Happy Birthday my Princess!

The faces of HFM

These are the faces of Hand Foot and Mouth. What is that you say? That is a good question. I didn't know until Thursday night myself. My girlfriend called to say that her son was sent home from school because of it. Of course it is contagious. Within 2 hours Maya was crying with a fever of 103. Saturday she broke out with the spots. Last night Gem started with the fever but as a added bonus is also vomiting. She threw up all over me several times and once in her bed. We were up until 3:30am. Maya has the spots on her face, hands, arms and feet. Gem has one dot by her eye but I'm waiting for more. The best thing you ask? It lasts for 7 days! That means we can't go out and can't do anything on Maya's birthday. What a bummer!
