A perk of the job - My World

One of the big perks in 'my world', is the regular arrival of Cupcakes on my desk throughout the year. Cupcakes are the preferred method of birthday celebration in our school and with 200 kiddies, hardly a week goes by without a welcome delivery.

Todays however, was more memorable than others.

There I was sitting at my desk, when two 5 year old Kindergartners completely overcome with giggles, stumbled through the door. The birthday girl then proudly presented me with this!

I burst out laughing and after wishing her "Happy Birthday" asked why my frosting was not on the cupcake anymore?

"It slid Miss Sarah" before she lost it to the giggles again.

"What the frosting just slid off all on it's own" I asked mystified.

"No, you see the whole whole cupcake slid but I catched it in time" at which point she ran out the door giggling.

After inspecting it for evidence it might have hit the pavement and finding none, I went ahead and ate it, still chuckling to myself.

Definitely the most intriguing cupcake delivery this school year, and I'm still not sure how this happened?!

To join in the fun go to My World Tuesday

It looks like dip - like you have to dip the cake in the frosting!

How funny! Reminds me of my teaching days and some of the funny things that happened with the kids and food of any kind! Love the picture of the cupcake!

Have a great week -- hopefully with more cupcakes -- with icing!

I'm afraid that was the problem for me once I started teaching. I got more cavities. My dentist told me to stop eating the sweets the kids brought in. Ah well. :-)

You sure it's not a DIY cupcake?

Louise said...

SO cute! You're lucky my 5-year-old didn't deliver it. She would have licked off the icing before giving it to you!

Sarah - this is great (and I'm glad you ate it!). As a former teacher, I can relate...

Ha ha. I thought it was ice cream to accompany the cup cake!

Sarah, what a cute story! Those little giggling kindergarteners are the best! It brings back many memories of my girls when they were that age! Thanks for sharing the story!

Pam said...

Too funny. The mind boggles on what it was saved from ... slipping into the trash or worse???

A very funny tale. I thought you were going to say that they'd eaten it, but hey, one must believe children, right? ;-)

Greetings from London.
