want some cupcakes?
When I was a child, we would have cupcakes for merienda fromt ime to time. It was a special treat that we would get when we behaved or had really high grades. I would look forward to it since it was a rare occasion. My family was not poor by any means but we were not as well off as my other classmates as well. Back then, we had to earn w"treats" and in some ways, it helped us strived to be better since we knew that if you worked hard enough, there would be something that good in store for you.
Now that I am a Mom myself to B (my baby boy), I would probably do the same thing to him when he starts school. I don't want him to be a spoiled brat, hence, he should earn the rewards that will be given to him or the ones that he will desire so he would know the value of things.
For now, since he is still my adorable baby boy, he can have a cupcake or two if he wants simply because he is such a precious gift that keeps me inspired. As for you, why not grab one and tell me a story from your childhood.
