Usually I’m not big on having kids in the kitchen. It’s not really a child friendly place what with the knives, gas flames, scorching hot pans, and boiling water. Plus my kitchen is pretty tiny. Sometimes no amount of daddy distractions will keep child 5 away from me while I’m trying to cook.
When I was making blueberry muffins for son 2’s class at 8pm, she was so insistent on “helping” me, I had to acquiesce. The baby is not even 2, but she did an excellent job putting the cupcake liners in the pans.
