teething sucks, cali doesn't

Ahh, teeth.  Seems they've got no regard for vacation or beauty sleep.  A's working on #4, a particularly pesky top tooth causing a whole lot of misery, mostly of the nighttime variety.  More clearly, of the "wake and scream at the top of your lungs no matter what your concerned but exhausted and half-asleep mommy tries to do for you for 90 minutes straight until passing out and snoring like a truck driver for a few hours before starting the fun all over again and making mommy wonder where Grandpa hides the tequila" variety.  He's still awake tonight.  Bedtime #1 came hours ago, and a whole lot of miserable screaming ensued (between rocking, Motrin-dosing, back rubbing, etc.) until two sympathetic grandparents intervened, bringing Mister A out of the crib for a do-over.  (He thanked Grandpa by barfing all down his neck and shirt.)  Bedtime #2 is in process, and from my hiding spot out on the patio, I'm pretty sure those are Mister A screams I hear downstairs.  Thank God for Grandmas.  And wine.

Despite the dental drama, we've still been managing to have a great time, as usual.  Hanging out, eating well, enjoying the effervescent SoCal sunshine.  Tonight, after a delicious (belated) Mother's Day dinner, we tried out the famed Sprinkles Cupcakes.  Holy.  Moly.  Absolutely worth the wait in a shockingly long line that stretched out the door and to the parking lot.  A little heavy handed on the frosting, and most certainly not something I'd eat more than once a season if I'd like to continue wearing pants without elastic waistbands....but one taste explains the hype, for sure. 

Anderson and Mama, leaving Sprinkles.  A's looking super peppy, don't you think?

Based on the look on his face, I am not sure A is of the same opinion of this cupcake place as you are. He seems skeptical. That, or he is more worried about maintaining his girlish figure than you are.

What is this cupcake place? I have never heard of it and I love a good cupcake place!

OK, the cupcakes sound divine! I've heard about places like this and they always get really good reviews.
