On baking an floor cleaning

The child baked yesterday. The results this time were quite pleasing as she did several things differently:

  1. She followed the instructions
  2. She measured everything
  3. She followed Mothers advice about when to take it out of the oven.

As a chef I have trained people to cook but I find it very difficult to do so with the children as it involves hot things, and sharp things. Therefore I tend to write a big list of instructions and leave the house, a method that seems to be working ok.

Yesterdays baking involved cocoa and vast quantities of butter, large amounts of which are stuck to the floor. I stayed in bed till noon today to give the cleaning fairy's a chance, but they didn't visit even though I was very quiet. I then went out for a run to give them a chance, but still no visit. I am now resorting to more primitive techniques and am sprinkling a few drops of milk on the floor an locking the cats in.

awwww thanks Erron. Have moved house since then and baking doesn't seem to be quite so high on the teenagers list of fun things to do.

Also, I have my new 100% foolproof method for getting things done, and that is to remove the internet cable. Works a treat!
