    I never did understand the idea of only doing something special for “company”.

    They’re your company, Michael, so you should give them something.

    Which is worse; when the kids act too dumb, or when they actually outsmart you?

    Exactly. Let him make something and leave the cupcakes mom made alone.

    Yes, how could you bake yummies & not give some to the kids?

    I think that if Michael hadn’t become a writer when he grew up, he would have made an excellent lawyer or politician! He definitely has a knack for talking people into seeing things his way!!!!! ;-)

    Growing up, my parents told me that once I was in another person’s house, I was bound by their rules. So if a friend’s parents told me “no”, that carried the same weight as my parents telling me no.

    Probably because Elly was preparing it for a party or like function for her guests. The kids were Michael’s guests, not hers. As such, Michael is responsible for them.

    Same here, and it went both ways.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    If you are expecting 10 guests and bake 12 cupcakes, you won’t have enough to be handing them out to your kids and their friends. Not necessarily doing something “special”, simple mathematics.
    Or are you still not able to grasp the concept?
