OK. So I have to pause your regularly scheduled postings of NC for this "special" update. So Aaron has been asking me for months to make Crumbcake "like Mrs. Julie makes." Well, of course I had to, but just kept forgetting to get it at the store. So he would ask me every now and then "Mom, did you get the stuff to make Crumbcake yet?" Like a good mom I replied, "No, I forgot again..."
So! Finally!! I got a wonderful little box of Krusteaz Crumbcake mix and woke up this morning at 4:30 a.m. to milk the cows and be a good mommy and make crumbcake from scratch...well...kindof. If it involves the oven for me it's from scratch. Anyway, my morning was consisting of getting myself ready and three boys ready for school. Caleb had a Thanksgiving program a Thanksgiving Feast (which I was in charge of) and eat with Aaron for his 3rd grade meal. The cake was smelling so good and 45 minutes later it was ready. I got it out of the oven and put it in the freezer to cool off so I wouldn't burn my sweet children as they scarfed it down before school.
A few minutes later after finding school shoes, signing folders, making Jacob's lunch etc., I went to get the cake out of the freezer. Yep, you guessed it...the long awaited, beautiful, better-than-Mrs. Julie's-Crumbcake, fell on the floor and broke. Now, mind you, I time everything very carefully to get the boys to school on time everyday. This delay could have set any other "normal" mom back. Nope, I just stared at it for about 5 minutes actually thinking...I wonder if I could get all the glass out? Maybe...No I can't...They can just eat the top...No... Kept staring at it and finally broke out the Toaster Strudels. Breakfast of champions.
I still have a dirty kitchen and I still owe Aaron a crumbcake.
P.S. Don't you every wonder when something breaks how there is soooo much more glass to clean up that was every there to begin with?
