RAINBOW CUPCAKE COOKIES/ Three!



These Rainbow Cupcake Cookies were made for my grand nephew’s birthday party at nursery school. Wearing his green T-shirt which read T H R E E and hearing his nursery school mates sing Happy Birthday made for an exciting day. So in this post what better topic for today than those ‘moving balls of energy,’ a description by his MumMum of her three-year-old grandson. At age three the 'terrible twos' are in the rear-view mirror with more to learn and more to do. Toddlers … they are just the cutest!

Today’s post was a group effort. My two nieces each have three-year-old boys and I thought who best to describe toddlers at age three than their Moms. It took only seconds to compile this list.

CURIOUS … INQUISITIVE … FUNNY … THOUGHTFUL …
… LITERAL … ENERGETIC … CHEERFUL … INNOCENT …
… JOYFUL … IMAGINATIVE … CREATIVE … LIVELY …
… TALKATIVE … SWEET … LOVING

Oh, Thank Heaven for little Boys …

  2. What three year old wouldn't want to sink their teeth in those "handsome" looking cookies Joan. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't mind one, two, or three myself!

    Thank heaven for little boys and all that compact energy:) Happy Birthday to your grand-nephew too...
