30 days of happiness: day 1 fairy cakes

I have been feeling quite overwhelmed recently and have let things get the better of me, failing to 'see the wood for the trees' so to speak - then I read this post over at Bluebirdbaby this morning and I was instantly inspired to join her 30 days of happiness. To seek and notice the small but important things in our lives that are easily overlooked in the frustrations and stresses of day to day life.

So to kick off day 1: I sat and just watched as my little adrien made these simple fairy cakes. I watched as he thoughtfully and strategically spooned on the icing and sprinkles with such concentration and determination, it was so amazing to watch and I didn't step in once I just let him go. We then sat together and ate a cake each, savouring the sweetness in our mouths and licking sticky fingers.

Watching without stepping in "to help" is not something I'm very good at most of the times. Adrien did a very good job all by himself.
