Cupcake Quotes: Too many cupcakes

28 Nov

comic strip on cupcakes

Pink oven recognises mini cupcake as the 138th cupcake that she brought to the world. What a touching moment as the mother reunites with her child, although I do wonder how she divides her love equally among all her children. I mean, for one, love is not something that is easily measurable and therefore divisible using mathematics.

It doesn’t help too that parents would naturally be most excited with the first-born and dote on the youngest child. So the middle children receive less love compared to the eldest and the youngest even though parents do not meant it to be so.

Food for thought for parents with more than one child.

    I totally enjoyed this story. It does take a lot of work to make sure you are not separating your children, especially the middle child, but it is doable. As a mommy I found that all of my children were loved for their individuality, because none of them were the same so I loved them each just as much but they were loved specifically for them and their individual needs within that love. That is the problem with a lot of parents. They try to group the kids with one type of hug or kiss or one type of process of attention to save time. But each child requires something special for each child. Patience, Love and an open heart to understand each of them for who they are. It’s not easy getting them all to accept everything in a meal that you have prepared, some like peas but some prefer carrots, they don’t want things to touch, etc. So I took the time to be a mommy to them. I did not rush around or panic or get upset because of who them were and why they just could not all be the same, but I nurtured each one of them to be who they were to be. Now my middle child Jessie is a balanced, well adjusted freshmen in college studying to be a mechanical engineer because of Legos and finding the things he really liked to do. Love comes in all degrees and forms. Just find what fits your children.

      Thank you for dropping by and taking the time to share your parenting experience!

      Totally agree that we should love each child for his or her individuality rather than comparing them with one another.

      My mum’s way to handle the cooking issue – cook what dad likes. 😛
