At three o'clock in the morning of his birthday, he woke up, and woke me up, to see how far I'd gotten with the pudding and how it turned out. His anxiety about them started making me anxious, I have to say. But as I carried them into the cafeteria for him to pass Vaout to his classmates, his face told all. There was no question he was 100% satisfied, and any hesitation I had melted. There is no greater feeling than knowing your child is happy, as long as they're happy for the right reasons. And if all it takes is 14 cups of dirt pudding with two worms, I'm one blessed mom.
Happy Birthday, my dear Luke!
