Orpheus' teacher, Miss Margaret, suggested that the class celebrate his 5th birthday today. With mom Calliope in Detroit for job training, there was a cupcake crisis looming.
Since I had been thinking of taking a day or two off anyway, this seemed like the perfect excuse. So, Orpheus and I spent the afternoon in the kitchen. Four hours, three licked spoons, two gobbled gumdrops and one egg on the floor later we were done with our creation.
I allowed Orpheus to sample a ladybug. I hope he has a great class birthday.
