He really really didn't feel like going to school this morning, for no real reason whatsoever. So I bribed him. He left to school, still upset, but surrounded by promises of treats when he came home. At one point this morning, he turned, looked at me with horror and said, "How are you going to make cupcakes? You stay in the car and wait for me all day, right?" Um, yes. I can make cupcakes in the car. Mommies know how to make magic cupcakes.
1 box of chocolate pudding mix
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 and 1/3 cups of water
1/3 cup of oil
Mix all. Pour into cupcake pan; makes about 20 cupcakes. Fill each cupcake 3/4 of the way full. Top each with two chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes. Cool. Wait for the boys to come home, listen to two year old ask for just one more cupcake many many times before the boys come home, and eat.
