Pink cake pops bring a special kind of happiness to little girls.
Iced to take back home to dad, hot for mom.
For a few minutes I sat back, enjoyed my coffee and the quiet atmosphere.
FYI: Cake pops also make for two very quiet little girls.
These were an amazing 2 minutes.
And then life resumed.
They were running around, giggling and playing on all of the "fun" chairs.
I was feeling a bit less than relaxed all of a sudden, but thankfully at 2:00 on a Saturday Starbucks isn't very busy. I needed to remember that they don't have to be quietly sitting like picturesque kiddos in their chairs while mommy sips her latte.
Sometimes I can be a fun killer. A fun killer for no good reason. When they are being bad I know I should get them in line. But when they are just being girls, innocently playing around, sometimes I need to learn to chill out.
After all they are real kids, not robots.
So maybe it wasn't the quiet date I imagined in my head. But with my PSL in hand and two happy little girls playing I was okay with that.
And time with my girls is always good.
