After watching the Kids Baking Championship, Maddie was inspired for Taisie's birthday. So much so, that she began the stages of the cake 2 days before the actual day. Here's the making of the cake itself.

During back to school shopping, Maddie told Jess that she wasn't happy with any of the pencil cases, as what she really wanted was a "Nevertheless, she persisted" one. With fifth grade feminism not to be ignored, Jess knew etsy could help.
Then Auntie Jamie heard about the pencil case and added some swag to her backpack as well.
We can do it!

Upon arriving at the kitten fair at the Burbank Animal Shelter, Jess made clear to the kids that she wanted a baby kitten - like 10 weeks old - since she wouldn't be a able to have another kitten in the house for another 15ish years. As it turns out - to adopt a 10 week old kitten, you must arrive at right when the fair begins. After waiting on line for what seemed like kid forever, Jess did think it was only fair to let the kids at least look at some of the kittens.
Tony was 14 weeks old. And Jess was on the fence until Max pointed out, "Mom, isn't a Tony an award also."
With kismet on his side, and Jess one step closer to an EGOT (The Countess Emeline, Oscar and now Tony), Tony joined the family.
