I meant to share this the other day and I forgot. I wanted to get this out there because there’s so much negative right now, it’s even more important to focus on the glimmers or positive moments.
I shared the other day that Emmett had baked cutout cookies, all by himself. He did amazing and I’m so proud of him.
Elliott checked something off his COVID bucket list as well. He baked a double layer cake, all by himself. He’s been wanting to do this for a while now and he accomplished this the other day.
I want to also applaud him for letting Emmett color the icing. Elliott wanted to do this all on his own but Emmett wanted to help. Instead of pushing him away, Elliott allowed him to color the icing.
One of the things we have to work on is cutting reasonable size pieces. He simply cut the cake into four pieces and they were huge. I couldn’t eat even half of that but what I did eat was delicious. I will also add that for the most part, he did clean up after himself. That’s something we’re working on as well.
I’m so proud of my kids. They continue to surprise me with their brilliance and I love them all completely. ☺ ♥
That’s great. Maybe he was just thinking of dividing the cake between the 4 of you. I frequently cut brownies or bars into 4 sections to set what each one of us eats aside. I hope you have a really Merry Christmas anyway, Rob. We’ve all been struggling but as long as we get through it, we should be okay.
