The other side of Miss Alice

All my friends know that I love to cook, and I have always encouraged the children to help, every day whether baking a cake or chopping vegges for tea, there is always a child helping me.

This child, is, by far the messiest, even by my standards. I cringe at the thought of cooking with her and contemplate cooking when she is having her lunchtime nap...... but I don't, ultimately I know how important the sense of touch, taste and smell are to a child. Squishing the cake batter through the hands, I know, is important, but it's hard sometimes, and I nearly take the easy way out.

Luckily cakes are cooked at 200 degrees!

Oh! Oh! Oh no! What fabulous joy and satisfaction in those photos. I have similar ones with Abby at that age with cheesy spaghetti - there were times when a shower fully clothed was the most appropriate cleaning technique :-) You're lovely to persevere.

oh my goodness.
Yes the kids always help me with the baking and sometimes I wonder if it's worth it! But I keep doing it because they love it so much.
