The double digits are here. My boy is turning 10 and I made him a huge marshmallow with a chocolate cake inside to celebrate.
I had no idea that having a kid would be the most rewarding and at the same time, the most difficult thing I have ever attempted. I am still working on being a decent Mom since child rearing tends to be a moving target. I figure something out and inevitably, the kid develops and I have to figure out a new set of issues. Companies sometimes move around executives within their organizations to keep them sharp. My kid does that very naturally and it does help me grow as a parent.
The years are short and the days are long. It's a cliche because it's true.
The S'more cake came from Homemade Decadence, by Joy the Baker and the recipe can also be found here.
