This week my kids start school this is another adventure of my life, with Cupcake Camp, a two year old birthday party to plan, and 2 kids in school this year I have my hands pretty full, but I am trying my best to update as much as possible. I am amazed to see the growing support of Cupcake Camp Tallahassee, and I am hoping that it continues to grow to an annual event in which we can help the foundation for many years to come. Today my daughter reminded me of a very interesting lesson. She was upset today while we were shoe shopping because none of the 3 shoes she wanted were in her size, I impatiently rolled my eyes and said, Jailyn (that's my princesses name) that enough after about 5 minutes of whining I told her it wasn't that big of a deal and that it wasn't a huge problem like she was making it out to be. She just looked at me and tears started to fall. She said but mom "it is a big deal TO ME".... and it was she was nervous about school she was nervous about her friends and her life and she had no control of anything and the one things that she felt she would have control over was the shoes she wanted to wear. I understood perfectly I understood because I have felt like that. It is one of the reasons I am organizing Cupcake Camp Tallahassee and donating to the Jessica June's Children's Cancer Foundation, because sometimes in life we can go about our own business and just ignore some of the world around us. We can forget that sometimes people really just need help they need someone to basically tell them it's gonna be ok. To give 5 minutes of their day to think of someone else and not wonder in what way it is going to affect them. Sometime I wonder what would happen if everyone pick just one person to help.... on a side note... after 2 other stores we finally found the perfect shoes.
