I found a picture today of me when I was 2 years old making brownies with my mom. It's such a cute picture and I couldn't wait to get a similar picture of Isaac doing the same thing. Today was the perfect day for baking, since it was chilly outside and I needed something to help me procrastinate the laundry. I set Isaac all up with a bowl of brownie mix and a spoon. Much to my dismay, the opposite effect happened. He had to wash his hands every time he got a small amount of chocolate on them. Finally, I just put some chocolate on his nose and he FREAKED out! He does love watching them bake in the oven, so we have to check it every 2 minutes. So much for my great memory making idea... back to putting our cars in color coded order. I can confidently say that I have ruined my child's ability to enjoy a mess!
