It was not until my son turned three that I finally began to feel like I could maybe get back to my hobby of baking once again. But as for being the perfect wife and mother: I'm just not sure that is possible. If it is, I'm not there yet. Items to check off my list in order to fit that goal: lose baby weight; make more time for my gorgeous hubby; make him feel like I'm thinking only about him even if I'm pondering whether to throw in a load of laundry now or wait until the morning; be more patient with my beautiful children; try to make my husband feel that he is not in third place in my priority list..(hubby seems to be a theme I really need to work on!); join a gym; make a schedule of dinners so there is no debate about it; cook the same meal for everyone...long shot but it would be nice; upon my husband's constant urging, try to find a regular babysitter...writing this list is getting depressing so I'll stop with that.
Anyway, you get the point, I'm neither the perfect wife nor mother but I can bake the heck out of a cake and getting to finally make my children's birthday cakes has been a source of great joy for this imperfect mom! In the coming posts I look forward to sharing more of my life as a mom and as a creator of delicious (if I do say so myself!) and beautiful (see the photos and judge for yourself!) confections.
