A Conversation With a Three-Year-Old

“What’s this? It looks like a chocolate sprinkle, is it a sprinkle?” He said.

I extended my hand and he dropped the small black speck into my outstretched palm. I had to peer down close and determine the strange substance. What would a chocolate sprinkle be doing in a gym?

“No, sorry, it’s not a sprinkle. It’s just a piece of black plastic,” I said.

“Oh,” He said. He took the speck back and held it in his hand for a moment more, scrunching up his face and pondering.

“So does that mean we shouldn’t eat it?” He finally asked.

Laughing: “No, definitely don’t eat it,” I said.

In other news…I made Inception Cupcakes

So I found this marvelous looking recipe online and since I’m super compulsive I decided that I had make it. I’m calling them Inception Cupcakes because it’s a cupcake in a cupcake…though my sister argued it wasn’t technically Inception because the cupcake wasn’t within a cupcake. Whatever, ‘technicality,’ whatever. I was pleased with myself, so that’s all that matters.

I loved the Reese’s peanut butter cup disguised as a miniature cupcake on top! And the peanut butter frosting combined with this doctored cake mix made for a glorious combo. It’s seriously one of the best things I’ve made in a while.
