Birthday Aftermath

The post-party tasks have gone more smoothly than expected. The little dude knocked out his thank you notes with remarkable good humor, only asking for help on some complicated spellings (“Pharaoh’s Quest” Lego being one.) Next year, I’ll have him add a sentence about why he liked the gift, but I think as a new six year old, it’s ok to just say “Dear X, Thank you for the Y. From Q.”

I took an extra veggie plate and 21 cupcakes to the office, since none of the adults at the party consumed one, and I didn’t think it was a good idea to leave that much frosting in my household. I wondered if I ‘d have to return to the break room at the end of the day to discreetly dispose of them if my co-workers eyed the ninjas and feared sugar poisoning, but I needn’t have worried. The cupcakes were gone in moments, and all that remained were a few stray sticks of celery. Even those were gone by mid morning.

I expect this kind of devoured-by-wolves behavior from college kids, but I guess work isn’t that different!

Bonus: My beloved Cupcake Courier was much admired.

Who could resist a ninja cupcake? Not me!

Snacks are always welcome, no matter where or when. One may resist the first time one walks by but not for long.

I can't imagine spurning a free cupcake. Not in my wildest dreams!
