Is it normal to have motherly feelings toward a cake you just made? As a friend was leaving with the Noah's ark cake I made for her daughter's first birthday I felt like a mum parting with her child for the first time (not that I have any idea what that feels like, but I think I just caught a glimpse!)
"Did you pack your socks?"
"Don't forget to change your underwear, and if anyone bullies you, call me!"
"...I love you!" Since my sugarpie (emphasis on sugar) walked out the door, I've had my phone right next to me waiting for it to ring. I feel like an empty-nester.
Something tells me this is not normal. Somebody help!
