I remember my mother once made this blueberry delight tart, but I can’t recall the name. So, this weekend I wanted to do something a little different. I want us to think back to our favorite childhood treats and share them. My mother isn’t living anymore so I can’t really give you details about the delight, but I can tell you about the ugly cake.
The ugly cake is also called the gooey butter cake. It’s rich and delicious with lots of butter and sugar. You take a yellow cake mix and prepare it as if you were going to bake it by the directions on the box. Then you take one stick of cream cheese, and a pound of powered sugar . After you mix all of that together you will layer it on top of the yellow cake mixture and let it bake for 30 to 40 min depending on the stove.
So, here’s the fun part. Post something easy and maybe we can all try something new this weekend. I don’t care what country it comes from, just post it and we will give it a go. You have to give something a try too! That’s how this works. I will open comments for this.
My daughter struggled with learning how to fit in until we explained one basic rule. It’s normal to be abnormal and perhaps abnormal to be normal. So somewhere in between the uncanny words, unfinished statements, she found her voice! She went from the below video to the YouTube girly she is today!! Help your children learn to love who they are and not hide their true self. We live in a very judgmental time and often those who are most different find themselves the target of bullying. She’s happier today because she is no longer living by the world’s rules. It’s simple, learn what they like and try to be supportive.
This really shows you how different children are in regards to ideas and talent. This is the 13 year old who has her own YouTube channel and fan base. She’s a little activist and I couldn’t be prouder.
I think the thing I’m most proud of is that she took her love for this group and tried to bring awareness to a subject that we often don’t talk about until something awful happens. She has managed to show how sometimes we live in patterns when it comes to picking people who mean us no good. I read most of her work, and while I might not like some of the wording, I get the fact that she’s trying to send a message out. In a world full of drugs, sex, and alcohol, I’m glad my daughter has found a love for something else. At 13 I was writing poetry. At 13 she’s writing stories about girls being stuck in domestic violence.
Some months ago my daughter set out to make her first fanfiction piece. It was different for her because she was really into art around that time. If you recall some of my prior postings she was also dealing with some stuff because of my job and me never really being around.
After we moved here she wanted to share her love for KPOP by writing a story for fans like herself. I think it was a way to keep in touch with all the friends she left behind. I must admit, the not so cool mom in me was quite confused. Yet, I wanted to be supportive because that’s what parents do! I never really understood fanfiction, but after reading some of her work, I’m all in. I’m still not too crazy about the curse words, but I get she’s trying to tell a story. Too bad she will not let me know any inside info! I want to know who ends up with the girl. I even promised not to say a word, but I’m in the dark just like some of you! So for some of my readers that like KPOP, I will list her episodes below. I hope you enjoy it! I don’t know much about Youtube, but she has over 30K views on her fanfiction stories together. I just think it’s really cool and I wish I had an ounce of that creativity when I was her age.
