Sometimes life is like an Easy Bake Oven.

You spend too much money.

You work hard for hours and hours and hours.

You hope for something amazing and awesome.

You end up with something that looks amazing and awesome.

However, that something is the size of your big toenail, and you have to ask yourself,

"Was it worth it?"

The answer is probably going to be no.

But you continue onward.

You will keep pressing forward.

Because part of the fun is the hard work,

and the joy that sometimes comes.

Because one day,

you just might have a real oven,

that will bake big cupcakes.

You will remember the times of the tiny treats.

You will smile.

You will remember it is the little things in life that matter.

The little things in life are the ones that make you smile and make it all worth it.

Like pinkies and tiny tea cups to go with those toenail sized treats.

Sometimes life is like and Easy Bake Oven, or a box of chocolates, or something like that.

This is so true. I am going to make you a sign because I can see so many "easy bake oven " moments and sometimes it doesn't feel like they will ever pay off but they do. Love your gutts.

If that's not the cutest I don't know what is! Love it. I wanted one of those when I was a kid. Didn't get one and now I rarely cook! If I had an easy bake oven.... Who knows how life could of turned out!
