One of the things about waiting until Amara is almost 6 to start her blog is that there are so many funny stories that I never got posted and that I want to always remember. So this is what I call an Amara back story or maybe Amara, the Early Years. This first memory took place in May of 2008. Amara just turned 4 years old.
The kids came over for dinner that night. It was fun and Amara was in rare form! It was May in Southern California and it was gorgeous outside. Everyone had plenty of time for swinging and chasing Amara before dinner. She is such a sweetie and I remember thinking she had grown again that week. Jenna had made cupcakes for dessert. Jenna is amazing in the kitchen but more importantly she is the Queen of Baking and cupcakes are her specialty. She had made us white cupcakes with pink frosting and purple sprinkles. Amara saw them and burst out with:
“Pink and purple cupcakes! My favorite!
Mommy — you’re a genius!”
