we baked chocolate muffins yesterday. i packed two for her short break. she tells me, momma, for my seven years birthday, i want a star shaped chocolate cake made by *here she pauses for effect, eyes sparkling* momma... *now lifts her right leg and right hand.* i said really!
she continues, just make some chocolate cream. and, also some white cream and write happy birthday. i said okay.
baby, i forgive you your teenage for this show of faith in me
