Give Me Some Sugar

SSG figures the surefire way into little munchkins hearts is with sugar.  The reason SSG knows this is because the surefire way into HER heart is with sugar and since she occasionally has the mentality of a four year old ... you know, 2+2 and all that.


So SSG and her niece made some cupcakes last night.  We banned mommy from the kitchen  because aunties don't really care about messes and chocolate on countertops or ceilings ... or white shirts (sorry Winner!).  We dumped and cracked, stirred and measured, lined and poured then popped the cupcakes in the oven.  

After we shook the sprinkles around like maracas, we joined SSG's nephew on the couch to watch an episode of Curious George while the cupcakes did their thang in the oven.

And right after we sat down, SSG's niece threw her arms around SSG and her nephew and said "I LOVE YOU GUYS!"

And SSG's heart melted just like that chocolate in the batter.

Isn't it the best feeling? It makes me want to cry a little each time Miss O says "I yuh you".

Ahhhhh.

Auntie-hood is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Sugar + Allow to stay up late = Love in this auntie's book too!!

Most things aren't what they are cracked up to be, but Aunthood is all that and a bag of chips!
