So, as I noted yesterday, the school had its annual cake raffle. It involves teaching kids a valuable lesson on probability and dealing with disappointment while they toss in raffle tickets in favour of cakes that are much better than they would ever receive at home. (Any normal home anyway. )
As usual, I try to prime my children on this "tough luck kid" life lesson thing before they go to school to avoid a meltdown in public. As usual, my daughter has her stupid run of luck and wins, again, like she did here and like our son did here. (Sheesh! How the hell am I supposed to teach her to not play the lottery if she wins all the time! No, wait... "Honey, can you please come to the casino with mommy?" Anyway, here is her winning cake.
this. So.... being awesome, I commit to making another cake. Except the kids are wising up and being more demanding. I raised the bar. What was I thinking?! Here is what I created.
