he knows me…

My 7 year old knows me well. 

He knows I’m a list maker. 

He knows I need to write things down or I tend to forget.

He knows if something is important, it had better be written down and put somewhere I will see it 20 times.

Last night I was sitting on my bed relaxing – making necklaces, actually – when Seth came in and asked me if I would make cupcakes tomorrow (today) while he was at school.  He  told me he’d like chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting on them…he repeated the chocolate frosting request a couple of times.  (I usually make chocolate cake with white frosting because that’s my favorite).  I told him I would make them for him, and he left the room. 

About five minutes later he returned, walked around the bed to my nightstand and sat this paper on it…and told me it was a note so I wouldn’t forget.


With a sweet reminder like this, I could never allow myself to forget his cute little request. 

So, you know what is right at the top of my “to do” list today. 

Yep…Zach and I will be baking cupcakes! :o)


  1. I could have written this post. It sounds like my son and me. So glad we're not the only ones. He actually asked ME to write a note to remind HIM that he wanted to go to the Starfall website today after school. I'm raising a list-maker, what can I say?

  2. OMG! That is just adorable. I love the pic of the cupcake too.
    So sweet :o)
