Who Da Mommy?

Baby Goddess' birthday is day after tomorrow. She's going to be four.

We went after work and bought boxes of chocolate cake mix and cans of vanilla frosting, coarse colored sugar and gel paint.

We now have several dozen chocolate cupcakes with purple frosting, purple sprinkles (and some silver dragees that I had lying around the place) and purple writing that says "Happy Birthday" written across several cupcakes. The Baby Goddess is so pleased she can hardly contain herself.

I named my first novel attempt "Dolorous Aubergine," for my grandmother whose favorite color was purple and who passed away just as I was starting my novel. So, I guess my baby is more like "Felicitous Aubergine."
